Christmas! — Wonderful Counselor!

Day 2243: May the purposes of God fill your otherwise ??? Monday! Starting a Christmas theme today!

Scripture: For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace! Isaiah 9:6  

Thoughts/questions: Wonderful Counselor! Each word would probably be enough to describe our Savior, but together, Wow!!!

Life is filled with counselors of all names – psychologists, psychiatrists, life coaches, trusted advisors – all try to help, but some aren’t quite so ‘wonderful.’ But our Jesus is both!!!

Yes, He is THE counselor! His teachings and guidance bring us a life we can live abundantly regardless of our circumstances. Yes, He is THE wonderful One! His caring love for us surpasses any other.

Utilize this Wonderful Counselor! Read His words in the gospels. Start with the Beatitudes and let His counsel be your guide! And He also listens pretty well!!! Tell Him everything!

Suggested prayer: My Wonderful Counselor! How often I look to other sources for my counsel. May I always start with You and help me to apply Your guidance . . .
