Christmas 31 day scripture writing challenge, day 1&2

Hello Lovelies!

I was challenged to expand on my daily Bible reading by following a plan of verses that points us to the true meaning of the season by a dear friend on Instagram (@strongforapurpose).
The challenge is simple: read the verses each day AND copy them into your journal. This has been proven to help with verses stick and give them a bit of an anchor in your heart. I'm taking it a step further by copying them here as well :)
So, get a pen and journal ready and let's enter into the Lord's presence with expectancy!

Day 1:
Isaiah 7:14-17New Life Version (NLV)
14 So the Lord Himself will give you a special thing to see: A young woman, who has never had a man, will give birth to a son. She will give Him the name Immanuel. 15 He will eat milk and honey when He knows enough to have nothing to do with wrong-doing and chooses good. 16 For before the boy knows to turn away from what is bad and choose good, the land whose two kings you are afraid of will be left empty.” 17 The Lord will bring upon you and your people and your father’s house such days as have never come since the day that Ephraim was divided from Judah. He is going to bring the king of Assyria on you.

Day 2:

Isaiah 9:6-7New Life Version (NLV)
For to us a Child will be born. To us a Son will be given. And the rule of the nations will be on His shoulders. His name will be called Wonderful, Teacher, Powerful God, Father Who Lives Forever, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to His rule and His peace, upon the throne of David and over his nation. He will build it to last and keep it strong with what is right and fair and good from that time and forever. The work of the Lord of All will do this.

My own personal goal this coming year is to live more audaciously than ever before and drink fully of God's great grace. All too often I find myself saying "when" as He pours into me because it requires change. This coming year, I embrace the fullness of God and say "YES!" with enthusiasm.
