As young children, Christmas and summer vacation couldn’t come soon enough. We waited anxiously as the months dragged by and were not as thrilled when September rolled around, signaling the beginning of a new school year.
Now that we’re older, the years come and go with great speed. It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the New Year, January 2017. Suddenly, Christmas is behind us and the New Year is peaking around the corner again.
My, how time flies!
I think the speed of time, and our inability to keep up with it anymore, have personally become our new normal. While we are not able to slow down time, we can certainly live each day with a greater awareness and appreciation of God’s presence in our lives.
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
He is a Counselor to those who are troubled, Mighty God to the weak and defenseless, a Father to orphans and widows, and He provides everlasting peace to the anxious, restless, and fearful.
God has given us all this, and more, through His son, Jesus Christ, the most precious gift you will ever receive! There is nothing as priceless as the salvation of God – forgiveness of your sins and eternal life. It is my prayer that you will accept Him as Lord and Savior of your life, if you haven’t already done so. Then, let me know so I can rejoice with you.
PRAYER: Lord, thank you for who you are, all you have done, and all you continue to do for us and through us. Amen.
