This morning I woke up remembering that I have something more than presents, delicious food, & amazing fellowship with my family & friends to look forward to today… but Eternity.
I have an eternity in Heaven ahead of me. This is the greatest gift I have ever received. The gift of salvation. It was all made possible by God’s divine plan of redemption manifested here on earth in the tiny Christ child (John 3:16). Jesus Christ, who would live a sinless life of humility & servanthood would later give His life on the cross to become the propitiation for our sins (Romans 3:23)(Romans 6:23). When Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross, death was defeated and He prevailed in His mission to redeem us into fellowship with God, our Heavenly Father.
So today, on a day which is centered on the giving & receiving of gifts, I humbly cast everything down that I am & have ever received in gratitude & worship at the throne of God. Today my heart cries out ..”“Worthy are You, our Lord & God, to receive glory & honor & power, for You created all things & by Your will they existed & were created.”
Wishing you all a blessed Christmas day =)
lately i’ve been feeling a little off center. c’est la vie. embrace it and keep moving forward.
it’s hard to trust and believe. However, I will stand firm on God’s living word even when my faith is being tested beyond my limited perception of what I think is going on. HE sees the future, i just see the picture. Keep pressing on and waiting on the Lord, b.
Completely trusting God may sometimes mean doing absolutely nothing but being steadfast & patient.
I think there are two types of trust. The first is the trust we have that we are saved and nothing can break that. The second is the one we tend to struggle with most, and is the day-to-day trust of the things that happen. This type of trust can only come from communicating with God. Keep the line open!
