Day 13: He Who Promises is Faithful

Let us hold unswerving to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 

Hebrews 10:23 


There are so many good things that happen during Christmas, but for some Christmas can be a time of heartache.  This season can bring up pain from the past that makes it hard to experience all the joy.  There are current situations and circumstances happening right now that make it hard for some people to feel the love of Christmas.

I remember taking these photos as if it were yesterday…standing in the middle of that hospital NICU room scared to death of the unknown.  The boys came unexpectedly nine weeks early weighing just under four pounds apiece.  The journey ahead would be joyous but it was a time filled with stress, sleepless nights, and worry.

Chase and I visit about those days this time of the year especially because we got to bring them home on Christmas Eve.  We had completely missed the Christmas season but we were so grateful to be home that day.  There wasn’t time to decorate or put presents under the tree but we had these two precious gifts.My Boys 150

Sometimes there are no words that can be said to heal the hurt in our hearts but there is a man who came to heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds (Psalm 147:3)  Lets lean into him, his love, his goodness, receive his joy and he will give us peace.  Even when we can’t see it and we don’t feel it, he who promises is faithful.
