Wonderful! Counsellor!

Merry Christmas!

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

After all the preparation and anticipation is over, there is peace.  Reality sets in.  The day has finally come for Jesus’ arrival.  He is here.  Now what?  Now we continue on; not as we were before our preparations started, but with a bigger heart and more willing to follow Him.  Remembering how we felt when giving to others and recreating that feeling by continuing to give of our time and friendship and love.  God submitted Himself to this lowly state of mortality to experience pain, sickness, heartache and evil.  Why?  So He would know how to succor His people (you and me).

And peace, good will toward men!

And on earth peace

Luke 2:14    Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Sometimes it’s easy to find peace.  Sometimes we have to look for it in order to find it.  Sometimes we even have to wait for it, having faith that it will come.  I know that I feel peace when I read about Christ and think about Him and what He has done for me and His love for me.  I also feel peace when I am doing something for others.
