As for God, His way is blameless.
The Word of the Lord is tested;
He is a Shield to all who take refuge in Him.

Remember, as a child, how our dad was our hero? How he could not do any wrong in our eyes? Well, God wants us to love and trust Him like that. To love Him with a purity and honesty that surpasses anything we could ever comprehend.
As we grew older our dads made mistakes, because they are human. They maybe did not show up at a ballgame, dance recital or have time to listen. But I know Who does—God our Father. He has time to listen to all of our issues. He is always there…all we need to do is call out to Him because He will give us the ultimate peace.
There are a few moments when we experience pure joy. For some it is when their children are born; for others it is receiving the long-awaited proposal; for others it is when we accept the love and forgiveness of our Heavenly Father. You feel alive, changed, clean, and whole. Just as the shepherds watching the sheep on the night Jesus was born; they witnessed the joy of the celebration of heavenly hosts. Then they were able to see Jesus while he was just hours old. Can you imagine their pure joy?
Mary was able to have the celebration of her first-born child, even though she was not at home. God was so good to her to have others there to witness Jesus’ birth and all could feel the love of the Father that night, those who were expecting and able to see. This is what we felt when we first believed.

If you have not pursued Jesus as your personal Savior, reach out to Him. It is as simple as saying this simple prayer, “Father, I am a sinner. Forgive me for my sins. Thank You for loving me and accepting me into Your family. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
