This phrase was passed between myself and others 3 times in 2 days. Is this how God thinks toward us? How nice to hear this from another! It’s year end and we take stock of last year, the joys and sorrows. We look forward to tomorrow.
“Thus far the Lord has helped us.” 1 Samuel 7:12

God will comfort you:
“For the Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in it, Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.” Isaiah 51:3
We receive work:
“Then the Lord God took [a]the man and put him in the garden of Eden to [b]tend and keep it.” Genesis 2:15
We receive paradise:
“In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.” Revelation 22:2-3
“Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them,
‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.’
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
“For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37

Jesus is the ministry of reconciliation:
“Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
We’re so in wonder about Jesus’ birth because;
Who He is,
Why He came down to earth,
How He saves us,
How He loves us.
Many blessings to you all to know Jesus fully!
Praise God! Glory, blessings, honor, and power to You forever, Lord God
You’re My friends, if you do whatever I command you (John 15:14)
I think I met the loneliest person in the world: in need of deliverance, 10 years wandering, friendless, if he/she would only surrender to the One Friend, Jesus. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and go see a psychiatrist, also.
