The Weekend Brew: The Promises In His Name

wonderfulcounselor

Jesus.  There is so much hope and promise in Your name.

Jesus, Wonderful Counselor,
the promise of a life of wonder and delight, of anticipation for those who seek You and guidance and wisdom for all our days.

Jesus, Mighty God,
the promise of strength to the weary, hope to the hopeless and power to the powerless.

Jesus, Everlasting Father,
the promise of love, complete acceptance and continual forgiveness.

Jesus, Prince of Peace,
the promise of peace that surpasses all understanding and the calm in the midst of the storm.

This week I am turning my heart and my gaze toward Jesus, reminding myself of all that He is, and all that He has done for me.

What promise in His Name are you most clinging to today?

    Thank you for this Barbie….Jesus is our all in all. 🙂
    Right now, I’m clinging to the knowledge that God is my provider and my deliverer. We are in a desperate place….yet our hope is the Lord. I’m so looking forward to seeing him deliver us from this exile and provide for all our needs. He is able to do more than we can ask or imagine. Yes?

      Oh I know this place. We are still struggling in many ways. And just when we think we reached the end, God comes through and delivers us. He’s so good!

    Jesus. ‘The name that calms our fears, that bids our sorrows cease. ‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears, ’tis life and health and peace.’

    Thank you, Barbie, for bringing us to the Savior this morning! May this be a weekend of rest and peace, right smack dab in the middle of the crazyness that whirls around us.

    Warmest blessings to you, to yours!

    Very thankful that He is the Prince of Peace today…. tough night last night, so praying for His peace to rain down on some friends who are hurting.

    Barbie,

    I haven’t been here in awhile. Your blog is beautiful! And yes. yes. yes. Jesus, his name, and all that his name represents and means to us. In him we live and move and have our being, without him we can do nothing. He it is that holds us together. I have been going through a bit of a storm lately and he has been my anchor. He truly is the anchor of our souls. Amen.

    Blessings,

    Renee

      Renee, so thankful you stopped by. I will need to catch up with you. Yes, I love my blog, but can you believe I am doing an other tweak? I love that thought, that truth, that He holds all things together. Have a blessed Sunday.
