A Whisper Of Love’

Sometimes a whisper from Heaven to our souls is all we need to get us through. I love this verse and this promise from Isaiah don’t you?

“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:” Isaiah 40:4

Such a glorious word of the prophecy of our Saviour’s coming to earth. A glorious story ~ A story with far-reaching impact. A story that reaches farther than just a fable on this old earth because its truth reaches into the hearts of men to seek and to save the lost and to bring salvation into this wretched, sin-sick world of just bad and all gone wrong! To bring healing into hearts shattered with pain and hope into the broken and anguished stories of our lives. Oh, beautiful soul, how lovely it is to celebrate His unconditional love for us even in our darkest of the night’s moments. Our Savior’s divine and royal birth, whispers from the heavens to our souls and reminds us clearly,

“I came to help you through all the hard times and to uphold you through all the horrific moments that each one must bear over the course of a lifetime. I didn’t send the pain, but I came to ease it and carry the burden of it. Give it to me and let me bear it, for its weight is heavy, and its anguish is too great for one as beautiful as you.”

The glory of the Lord was revealed on that night, long ago when His light illuminated the dark, to announce His birth to shepherds who kept watch over their flocks by night. It still shines brightly in our night to day. Our nights of anguish, sadness, loneliness, fear, hurt, rejection, unfairness, brokenness, and pain. Its hope shines brightly to bring us peace through it all and to lead us through to level ground!

Do you know Him through your sorrow? Can He share your burden at this Christmas time? Can He give you Hope for even this? Can He grant you a peace that goes beyond all understanding, for such a time as this? That’s what He does! I love how He does it!

“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:” Isaiah 40:4 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:27

A Night Of Slumber

The birth of the Christ-child, broke through the barriers of a dark, ripped apart world that night while it slumbered, and it graced and illuminated us with a real-life story of God’s plan of action! His divine solution to the ruin of sin and the death it brings, lay helpless in that manger. Yeah, a real-life story of Jesus’ divine birth, painful death, and glorious resurrection was set into motion that night to bring hope to all people everywhere.

A Star Is Born on that glorious night

So begin today’s journey with a thought at the manger! Ponder the cradle, just to regroup and rejuvenate that busy heart and when the lights go out and the nights are still so dark, and the world still slumbers on in oblivion, you know Jesus. Let His presence calm and lead, awaken and enlighten your beautiful soul.

So hey ~ The night is far spent and our nights are long ~ and yeah~ even at this joyous time of celebration, the world and we ~ still slumber in so many ways, oblivious to His grace, His unconditional love and His divine plan of salvation. Oh, we full-well know and we’re not ignorant of His story and His grace, but we just forget ~ being so wrapped up in gift-giving and wrapping and baking and buying and decorating and friends and family and ~ perfection! Busy hearts, busy minds, and hectic preparation rob the joy from the oh, so-sweet celebration that it’s meant to be.


Peace On Earth

The angels proclaimed it at His coming and Oh can’t we all use a little peace today? Peace on the earth and peace in the soul? It’s one of the precious gifts He brought to earth when He came to heal the sin issues. Although the whole world doesn’t get it yet, the hearts and minds of those who invite Him in can! It’s a quiet sense of well-being even when all is not well.

Thing is when His people, His followers, experience such a precious peace, they can share it with a world in pain and help to make a difference. It seems we can hurt or we can heal through our choices, our actions, our behaviours and our words. Jesus came ‘kind’ to bring kindness and breathe peace into our chaos. Let’s go out ‘kind’ as He did and breathe even just a touch of His peace to others, through our words and actions. Today, He shows us the way of peace through His commandments and if we follow Him and focus on Him we won’t get lost in distractions!

Luke 2: 14
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”



Shalom and PEACE to you today!

Not only does our Saviour’s birth bring Hope, but His birth and very presence usher in a peace that passes all understanding! It’s a peace that transcends a fear of “What’s next?”, or the dreadful fear of ‘What’s going on?” It’s a perfect peace that the world can’t give and the world can’t take away no matter what this old world brings to our table. So yeah, really as serious as COVID is and as controversial as the vaccine is, and as many varied opinions as there are out there, they pale in comparison to the Peace that our Saviour offers to the very soul of us in our deepest distress. Because it’s all ok anyway isn’t it? If we know this one born to deliver the world from its sin, we know we’re in good hands in His safekeeping and as His divine prophetic plan unfolds before our eyes, it surpasses any crazy plan the world and its top leaders have in store for us. It’s a generous gifting from our Lord to us. Yeah, Jesus, Our Prince of Peace, came to share it with us and His sweet peace is not as the world gives but rather a sense of well-being welling up within ourselves. A peace that comes from our willingness to change and repent and do a turn about of direction. To walk with Him in His way of salvation and in His ways of abundance. It comes from simple trust in our Prince of Peace, the sweet Savior of the broken and hurting and those beaten and scarred and torn up by sin’s choices.

” Shalom” may His favour rest on you today as you seek Him and find healing in Him for such a time as this.“The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace!

”Numbers 6:23-26
