The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord blesses His people with peace.
This passage seemed appropriate considering I was at the funeral home tonight (for a neighbor, not a relative).
The Lord gives us strength and peace when trouble enters our world – we just need to lift our eyes towards heaven.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He has enough strength and peace for everyone.
May you find joy in knowing God has strength and peace to see you through your troubles any time of the year – including Christmas.
May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
Ada V. Hendricks
