Divine Christmas Note to honor our Everlasting Father – inspired by Isaiah 9:6

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”- Isaiah 9:6


Dear Friends,
This morning I had an “aha” God moment when I noticed the name, EVERLASTING FATHER in Isaiah 9:6. So I carefully searched the Scripture and found these answers.

Need to be closer to God?
A SON WAS GIVEN for us. Remember God’s ultimate gift to you the next time you struggle with unanswered prayers.

Need to be courageous?
Having the GOVERNMENT ON YOUR SHOULDERS is daunting, but Christ walked on this Earth with humility, grace and boldness. Remember His tender arms when you need courage to confront whatever is happening in your life.

Need to make a hard decision?
Check with your WONDERFUL COUNSELOR and you will get the right answer.

Need to be brave?
Call on MIGHTY GOD who will give you courage, comfort and strength.

Need security and love?
Your EVERLASTING FATHER never changes and He will love you forever.

Need to stop the stress?
Remember that only the PRINCE OF PEACE can give you peace that passes understanding regardless of your circumstances.

The next time you attempt life on your own, check Isaiah 9:6 and allow your EVERLASTING FATHER to guide you. I wish you blessings and lots of Big GOD Hugs!
Love you,
Blanca

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
