Strength & Peace

Scripture:

The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord blesses His people with peace.

Psalm 29:11

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.

Psalm 121:1-2

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.  

Quote:

 May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;

The spirit of Christmas which is peace;

The heart of Christmas which is love.
