🕯️This week we light the fourth Advent candle. This purple candle stands for the Gift of Love, given from a Holy God—Love sent to Earth, His Name is JESUS.
As we light this candle, we remember that because Jesus came and gave His life for each one of us, now we can receive the Love of God & we will live out that love every day of the year.
🕯️For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
🕯️Here we are, in what one of the most notorious Christmas songs describes as “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year “ & if we’re being honest, maybe instead of wonder-ful it feels a little weary-full.
We’re bone-tired from all the festivities and what we really need is rest.
The real kind —where your heart & soul find the strength to go on.
Let the words fall from your lips, “Jehovah Shalom—the Lord is Peace.”
Lean in and let the shepherd of your soul lift the weight off your shoulders and carry you.
Abba Father, we worship You because of who You are.
You are mighty in every situation, the loving Father we can run to, the Counselor we can trust with our every need.
You are our Prince of Peace—leading us to the peace our soul needs.
What a wonderful Savior! We love and adore you, Abba!
