"We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed, we are perplexed, but not in despair."
2 Corinthians 4:8
I recently stumbled upon this verse in the Bible. How fitting for the commotion that is going on in the world! We are troubled on every side and we are perplexed! We are all wondering, "What does 2021 have in store for our nation and for the world? I think we are all battling our own fears in quiet, different ways.
That is why this Christmas should be different than any other. God sent his Son to bring healing and hope to the world.
He delivered just that, and as we make room for Him in our hearts and our lives,
He still brings healing and hope, over and over again.
We can be amongst trouble, but not distressed. We can be perplexed, but not in despair.
Moroni 10:22 says, "And if ye have no hope ye must be in despair."
Does that mean that we have more control over despair than we may think? I believe so.
Make room for Him in your life;
Make room in your heart;
Make room in your mind,
And He will show you the miracle of HOPE in your life.
