Well, for today’s Proverbs 31 featured guest, we have the fabulous Bible teacher Wendy Blight. Here is her guest post:

What do I love about Christmas?

The better question is, what don’t l love about Christmas? It is my most favorite holiday.

But if I had to choose, I love Christmas Eve the most.  Monty, Lauren, Bo, and I attend a special night of worship at our church.

But when we return home, all seriousness is out the window.  We get cozy and comfy and watch the most wonderful Christmas movie ever…ELF!

You thought I was going to say It’s a Wonderful Life, didn’t you?  No, it’s Elf.

We know every line, but we laugh every time.

My greatest passion is teaching the Word of God. I lead a Bible Study in Charlotte, North Carolina and host on-line Bible studies.

I am currently leading an on-line study through the book of Hebrews and invite you to stop by my web site to learn more.

 

My heart is full as I ponder the many beautiful promises and truths wrapped up in this Christmas season.  What should I share?

I prayed…a recipe…a tradition…a family story? No, none seemed right.

What pricked my heart is Jesus.  He is, after all, the reason we celebrate this season.

His Names are many, but today I want to share one in particular.

Prince of Peace.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:5-7

The days leading up to today found me anxious and irritable.  How can that be?  It’s Christmas.  My favorite time of year.

I sensed something was not right, but I just could not identify it.  But my Heavenly Father did.

He awakened me at 4:15 a.m. and spoke Truth to me.

Wendy…

You are a My child.

You are a daughter of the Most High God.

Within you is My righteousness.

You are indwelt by My Holy Spirit.

Within you resides My Peace.

But I had forgotten.  I had allowed other things…tasks, busyness, work, shopping, decorating, and “to do” lists to fill that place.

My sweet Father reminded me:

Wendy, I will keep you in perfect peace when your mind is steadfast, because you trust in Me.

Isaiah 26:2-4

Wendy, the fruit of the righteousness that lives in you will be peace, and its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.

Isaiah 32:16-18

Peace I leave with you, Wendy; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

John 14:26-28

Wendy, when you stop being anxious, when you give everything to me in prayer, My peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-8

Friend, will you join me this Christmas season in inviting the Prince of Peace to rule and reign in your heart?  Will you join me in claiming these promises for yourself?

Wherever you see my name, insert yours.  Wake up each morning and invite the Prince of Peace to fill you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.

Keep his name on your lips all throughout the day.

My prayer for you is from 2 Thessalonians 3:15-17.

Heavenly Father, Lord of Peace, will you fill each one of my sisters reading this post with the fullness of Your Peace at all times and in every way.

No matter what is going on in her day, Lord, draw her back to You.  In Jesus’ precious Name, Amen.

Friend, I am so thankful Karen asked me to meet here with you today.  As I close, please know I have prayed for you…for each woman drawn here today.

God brought you here to remind you that He is your Prince of Peace.  Cling to Him today!!

I am giving away two gifts:

The first is is a newly released leather bound copy of Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling

The second a signed copy of my book, Hidden Joy in a Dark Corner.

Wendy has shared about the peace of Christ.

Please leave a comment telling us the characteristic you most love about Jesus for a chance to win her giveaway!

Or, if time is tight, simply say, “Peace on Earth”.

See you tomorrow for our last day of Christmas!
