He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth. Luke 1:14
God wakes us to welcome the Savior and receive His mighty presence in our lives. He provides opportunities for us to get to know Jesus and have a living relationship with the One who came to give us life.
As we anticipate the arrival of Christmas, we should examine our hearts and remember the gift of Christ is offered EVERY day. Jesus wasn't sent to bless us for only a single celebration. We can experience how it feels to have a living, lasting relationship if we say "yes" when He asks us to follow.
Jesus knows how to guide us to the Father. And when we choose to be led by His greatness, He gives glimpses of where to go. He carries us when we can’t figure out how to walk on our own. And He humbles our hearts for Him.
LOVE is not packaged for only one day to make us feel happy. God’s love is everlasting. His gift to the world is given to those who choose to receive. EVERY heart deserves the SAVIOR! He provides a reason for us to TRUST. He prepares us for what will happen next. Each morning will bring STRENGTH of it's own, if we remain faithful and embrace what's to come.
God sent His Son to bring PEACE and HOPE through our Savior. Let us praise Him for His presence and open our hearts to discover how it feels to live with the JOY He provides. Once we discover the abundance of His faithfulness, we will truly understand why Christmas comes more than once. We will never want to be without the calming presence of His tender love. ♥
Dear God, Thank you for all You provide EVERY day of our lives. Fill us with HOPE as we prepare to welcome Christmas and prayerfully PRAISE Your greatest gift to the world. Help us remember Your mercies are new each and every morning. We will faithfully find PEACE, STRENGTH, HOPE and JOY as we continue to TRUST in You. Thank you for the power of Your greatness in our lives! Truly, we love you so VERY MUCH! Amen
