I was chatting with a dear friend earlier today, she’d just lost her dad about a fortnight ago, and I wanted to know if she wasn’t feeling too overwhelmed with having to spend Christmas without her dad for the first time. Of course, it’d be somewhat overwhelming for her but she is one amazingly strong woman! I remember saying to her, “God is with you,” which rings true, especially now, because Jesus who is the reason for this season, is Emmanuel, ‘God is with us’! Matthew 1:23b
God is with us, yes He is! God is with you, irrespective of what is going on around you. Your loved ones and favourite folks may not be available but God is with you. Your situation may not be palatable, yet God is with you. Nowhere, somewhere, anywhere, everywhere, God is with you. Somehow, anyhow, whatever, wherever, God is with you. Always, forever and ever, God is with you.
If there is anything you need to internalize this season, it is the fact that no matter what…God is with you.
Wishing y’all a merry merry merry Christmas and a new year filled with new beginnings.
