Everlasting Father

“…and his name shall be called…The everlasting Father” Isaiah 9:6

I hate doing laundry, and I wish somebody would invent inexpensive (but cute) disposable clothing that could be thrown away after one wearing. If they can invent disposable razors, cameras, and dishes, why not clothing?

Some things, however, don’t ever need to be disposable. The human heart was made for eternity and Christmas was God’s way of supplying for the needs that last that long. You’re not a disposable piece of junk, but an eternal soul who needs an everlasting Father to provide eternal security, unconditional love, and royal identity. Consider the beauty of the way He provided all of that! In the face of not deserving any of it, the eternal Christ entered time as a baby in order to become your everlasting Father. How would you ever doubt your worth in the face of such love? He didn’t throw you away, He became your Way … in a manger.

Whatever you may be facing this Christmas, know that the everlasting Father had you and your issue on His mind before either one of you came to be. Long after your issue has passed, you and His love will live on because since the day you received Him (John 1:12), You became His and He became your everlasting Father.

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
