For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
In a world where bad things always seem to be happening, war continues, there’s unrest in the Middle East, natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy disrupt and destroy lives, our nation remains divided politically, financial disaster looms and children die at the hands of a disturbed individual it’s hard to imagine peace.
There is but one who can bring true peace. It is the child of Bethlehem who himself came to a world in turmoil. But he did not come to a world of chaos to end the problems, but to give us a peace within.
May his peace reign in your heart today.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
