The countdown is on… only 6 days until Christmas! Since I’m still childlike, the wait seems long.
I can only imagine what it felt like for the Israelites. The wait for the Messiah much have seemed endless, but the promises they were given are for us today. No waiting required! What an amazing miracle.
As I’ve been studying Isaiah through the First 5 app this month, these verses jumped out in my study:
And our response:
How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”
Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices;
together they shout for joy.
When the Lord returns to Zion,
they will see it with their own eyes.
Burst into songs of joy together,
you ruins of Jerusalem,
for the Lord has comforted his people,
he has redeemed Jerusalem.
Isaiah 52:7-9 (NIV)
Do you see it? We listen to the good news, and then we feel joy which leads us to share, shout and sing. Love it!
Until the New Year, friends! I’m thankful you’re part of this community, and I want to leave you with all the Christmas feels– from my house and heart to yours
