A Promise to Lift Your Spririts

They say that depression is highest around the holidays, especially Christmas. Having experienced a “low” over Thanksgiving, I now understand what a downer depression can be.

Could God ever want me to be depressed?Then where does depression originate?And what is the antidote for it?

Consider this: “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah

Now that was a promise!

In Luke 2:9-14 some shepherds tended their flocks by night. All of a sudden an angel of the Lord appeared to them with a message from God. He told them they’d find their Savior, their promised Messiah, wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.What? It seemed inconceivable that Israel’s deliverer would come as

Time to move on to a new promise–the best promise of all!

God’s Promises – Psalm 133:1(continued)

Good discussion yesterday! Thanks!

Let’s continue to discuss Psalm 133:1 for awhile. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.”

Well, here we are. Are you ready to discuss our first of God’s 800 promises in the Bible? How about starting with a verse that promotes peace and unity? Perhaps we need to remember this verse more during the Christmas holidays than at any other time.

A New Thing!
