VERSE OF THE DAY

Matthew 1: 23 (NRSV)

"Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel," which means, "God is with us."

God is with us.  He is not against us.  He is not chastising us.  He is not angry with us.  He is with us. 

With all of our flaws, all of our humanity, all of our mistakes, all of our stubbornness.  He is with us. 

Even when you feel like you are not even on your own team, God is still routing for you, He still believes in you, He made you, and He filled you with things that are pleasing to Him.

Don't give up.  Don't be discouraged.  Celebrate your life.  God is with you.
