Isaiah 9:6 has been everywhere lately. My husband gave a sermon on it last Sunday, I see it displayed on a neighborhood church sign every time I drive home, Instagram posts have been quoting it.

In a world where we seek wisdom in all the wrong places, are left feeling powerless to life’s tragedies and heartaches, witness the temporary and fragile state of our physical world, and our spirits are worn out and tired — in the midst of all of this, God says He knows what we need.

“And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor
Mighty God
Everlasting Father
Prince of Peace.”

For this, let’s celebrate. Thank you, Lord for the greatest gift of all.

Merry Christmas!
