I especially enjoyed the "Christmas Encouragement" that Greg Laurie shared today.
The summary sentence was:
"The message of Christmas is God with us!"
How can you not be encouraged by that!
"If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me" - Psalm 139: 9-10
That is such an awesome promise! No matter where you're at in life...He's with you. No matter what valley you're stuck in, He is right there beside you...loving you and encouraging until you make your way out. Then when you're up on that mountain top, He is rejoicing right beside you!
God is with you.
He's there in the daily stuff.
The best day ever.
He never leaves you.
He goes where you go.
How's that for encouragement!!
