For many people, Christmas 2020 looked different than in years past. Thankfully, no matter how things around us might change, nothing changes the reason for the season: God sent Jesus to walk among us on earth so that He could save us from our sins.
I hope you all have a blessed Christmas season and healthy, hope-filled New Year.
I’ll admit that Lamentations isn’t a book of the Bible that I often think of when I’m looking for encouragement. But these verses are two I’m claiming as we move into 2021. We might not know what the year will bring, but God does — and He’s in complete control.
Happy New Year, friends! May it bring more blessings to you and yours that you could ever dream.
It’s something that ties us all together, no matter who we are or what we do or where we’ve been. It’s that little spark inside us that refuses to die, that helps us press on when it seems like all is lost.
It’s a gift from God that grows in us as we learn to trust Him with every part of our lives — the big, the small, and the in-between. The things that affect our family, our country, and our world.
The rest of this verse (which I couldn’t fit on the meme) is, “so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Even on the dark days, we can hold on to God’s promise that He’s in control and that everything is going to be OK. And aren’t we glad He gives us the Holy Spirit to help us remember that? I know I sure am.
