The New Year And The Fireworks Of Life // Praise & Shine

Troubles can boom through our hearts, minds, and homes. The “fireworks” of life—family struggles, relationship problems, work challenges, financial strain, even church division—can feel like explosions, rattling our emotional atmosphere.

Yet we know the One who lifts us over this uproar. Christ Himself “is our peace.”

Praise & Shine: Christmas Awe

A man was in London one night for a meeting. He rushed through the streets, turned a corner, and then stopped still. Dozens of angels hovered above Regent Street, their giant shimmering wings stretching across the traffic. Made of thousands of pulsing lights, it was the most amazing Christmas display he had ever seen. Some of the angels had their arms raised, as if they too were gazing up at something. Like the angelic choir that burst into song at the mention of Jesus, it seems angels too can be caught up in awe—as they gaze on JESUS.

In Hebrews 1:3 it says “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being”. Bright and luminous, Jesus is the focus of every angel’s gaze. If an angel-themed Christmas display can stop busy Londoners in their tracks, just imagine the moment when we see JESUS face-to-face.

Praise & Shine: Sweet Again

What makes you long for God to make what is bitter sweet again? While you wait for Jesus’ return, what are some things you can do to make others’ bitter experience sweet again? God KNOWS THAT WE witness and experience so much pain, suffering, ruin, and death, AND sometimes it MAY BE difficult to believe HE WILL make what is bitter sweet again. GOD WILL Help US to put OUR hope in HIM, the One who’s promised to give US beauty for ashes and joy for mourning.
