Christmas Word of the Day with Author Bo Stern - INCREASE

Sometimes it is difficult to get excited during the Christmas season if you are going through something that is difficult.

Author Bo Stern understands it all. She has spent the past two Christmases trying to connect with the joy of the season.

In response to that struggle, Bo gives us the word "Increase".

For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given;

and the government shall be upon[d] his shoulder,

and his name shall be called

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and of peace

there will be no end,

on the throne of David and over his kingdom,

to establish it and to uphold it

with justice and with righteousness

from this time forth and forevermore.

The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

- Isaiah 9:6-7

God promises that He is going to bring this endless, infinite peace in our lives!

Jesus is here now.

He has come so that we can have that promise in our lives right now. We can know infinite peace. We can know that peace in the midst of our chaos.

So take heart and know that Jesus came to give you that increase of peace in your life.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
