The last year or two have been especially difficult. Our world has radically changed. The political and social climate have become more sensitive and inflamed, even volatile. Let’s not forget Covid-19, the health effects and financial devastations from it, the relational isolation and other restrictions imposed on all of us as a result. 

Yes, life has been downright discouraging, even depressing. That is why we want to share with you, our listeners, a special Christmas blessing. None of what has happened in our world is a surprise to our God. He knew beforehand what would happen and the eventual outcome is in His hands. This blessing comes from a song called “The Blessing” by Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes. There is a link below to a YouTube video of this song. Check it out. You will be blessed by it.

The Blessing

“The Lord bless you, and keep you, make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace. Amen.”

“May His favor be upon you, and a thousand generations, and your family, and your children, and their children, and their children. May His presence go before you, and behind you, and beside you, all around you, and within you. He is with you. He is with you. In the morning, in the evening, in your coming, and your going, in your weeping, and rejoicing, He is for you. Amen.”

May God’s Shalom be with you and your family. Merry Christmas!
