“It’s Just A Thought”
December – 2016
Merry Christmas! May the grace of God engulf your heart afresh and anew. Just as the day Christ came to Bethlehem to transform the earth. He comes again to bless our hearts afresh, this Holy Christmas season.
The visitors that came to express their love and present gifts to Christ so long ago were in awe of this little child. The sense of glory that filled a dirty stable evaporated the stench of animals hay and stubble. In fact, the manger, stable, oxen, sheep, goats and people were the most beautiful expression of love and wonder since the building of Solomon’s Temple. As Christ laid sleeping in a cold manger the warmth of love filling that Holy stable made everyone gracious, safe and content. God had everything under control, His perfect control and all anyone needed was to follow their hearts, to the most memorable moment of their lifetime.
We all are on a journey in life. Our particular walk although different in nature is for the same result, that we might know Jesus Christ as our personal redeemer. Our arrival to our destined moment is secured by a simple “yes” to Christ. The first visitors that came to Jesus had to arrive at His designated place. Now the Holy Spirit makes Christ real to us. He can establish His presence at any time, and anywhere. All we need to do is make an altar in our own personal hearts, our stable, to receive the greatest gift in life.
What we then realize is we become our best because it is originated from the destiny Christ has formed within each of us. Clearly, God is not a respecter of any person, place, or thing. His desire is to make our life an original masterpiece. Each of our circumstances have brought us to Christ and is and will always be our greatest blessing. Each heart becomes the new home for God. May we behold Him with a sense of awe each day of our life.
As 2016 comes to a final close perhaps this can be your Christmas of a life-time. Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back this time. Jesus has come and yearns to have deep fellowship with you. Run into 2017, with full expectation that all fatigue, disappointment, distress must leave you. A fresh faith is coming to rest upon you bringing you to new beginning’s in your life. Walk forward and embrace 2017 with all your heart. Reposition your priorities. As God is bringing new beautiful growth to your life and family, make up your mind and let yourself find a brand new determination to embrace all God has for you. Let nothing keep you from moving forward with great joy. Jesus Christ came for all of us. We will live our best life when we let Christ own all of our days. “Oh Come Let Us Adore Him, Oh Come Let Us Adore Him, Oh Come Let Us Adore Him, Christ Our Lord.”
Until The Next Time,
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
