13 Days of Christmas

Jesus said to him,
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.”
~ John 14:6 ~

Lighten the darkness
Be forever near us Lord
Bringing life to all

15 Days of Christmas

I have come into the world as light,
so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.
~ John 12:46 ~

The night Love was born
Gloriously rejoicing
Shine His light for all

Life!

May God bless and keep you through the trials! Many thanks for the prayers that have helped me through a difficult couple of weeks.  I am truly blessed and wish a barrage of blessings for you all as well. All my love ❤

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your mind in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:6-7

Life!

Life is crazy
Filled with ups and downs
With its share of tornadoes and whirlwinds

When times are good
Joy and peace come easily
With hope and desire that it never ends

But when times are bad
How quickly blessings are forgotten
With downcast thoughts around every bend

No matter the tide
Whatever you face, good or bad
God’s grace, mercy, and unceasing love He sends

Renewing your mind
Healing the brokenness
Refreshing the heart and soul within

Whether rain or sun
God shines down on you
Providing peace and comfort that transcends

Personal Psalm

There are times in life when you just feel overwhelmed–when your soul feels lost, your heart feels cold or numb, your mind is saddened, and your thoughts tend to wander to the worst case scenario. If you have ever been consumed with fear or hit rock bottom, feeling like you will never get back up, know that you are not alone! You may feel alone, been abandoned by family and friends, have nowhere to go and no one to turn to.  But rest assured that feeling is a LIE straight from Satan!!

You are NEVER alone!  You NEVER have to go through the trials of life alone!  You NEVER have to walk the road of life by yourself!  GOD is with you ALWAYS!  He promises to never leave you and to never forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:5-8).  He knows exactly what you need, even if you feel differently (Matthew 6:25-29).

So when you feel lost or abandoned, are hurting or sad, find yourself confused or depressed…reach out to God!  Let Him fill your heart to overflowing, giving you peace beyond understanding, providing hope for a better, brighter tomorrow, and showering you with love that covers all the hurt and pain.

Pick up the scriptures, open up to Psalms, and make God personal for you!  Absorb his words and let them inspire you!  I have done just that, and found my heart begin to repair, my thoughts start to align with God’s, and my anxiety slowly fade.  When I hit my lows in this life, I have taken many a scripture that inspired me and created my own Psalm–prayer, song, or love letter–to God!  It has been therapeutic to release it all to the One True God who is bigger than anything I face, and who has only my best interest at heart (Jeremiah 29:11).  So take a moment, write your own Psalm, your own prayer, song, or love letter to the Lord…giving him all that overwhelms you!  In release you CAN find peace! 

In his love and grace!

Bow down Your ear, O Lord, hear me; for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my life, for I am holy, You are my God;
Save Your servant who trusts in You.
Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I cry to You all day long.
~ Psalm 86:1-3

Personal Psalm

My heart yearns for You
Hear my plea O Lord
Consider my suffering
Darkness dwells within my soul
Keeping me away from You
Hindering Your will
Help me Lord
Heal this unending pain
Light up my soul
Fill me with Your presence
Consume me with Your love

The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Jesus is the Reason

Christmas day is here at last

With presents and decorations galore

The tree stands aglow

Twinkling like the stars in the night sky

A reminder of the that one blessed eve

Over 2,000 years ago

The angels appeared to the shepherds below

Telling the birth of Immanuel

He is the ultimate gift and Savior to the lost world

Born in Bethlehem, a lowly babe

Sent from Heaven above

God gave us His only Son to live and die

A sacrifice for all mankind

Though presents are lovely

And stockings filled with goodies bring a smile

Remember that fateful night long ago

He is the reason we celebrate

The magi came from afar to worship and adore

They brought Him gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh

The gifts we give to one another are thoughtful indeed

But the best gift we can give

Is the message of eternal life and love

Give the true gift of Christmas this year

Give the message of God’s mercy and grace

The promise of forgiveness of sins

A hope for an eternal life spent with Him

*****************************************************************************

 God bless and keep you and your family always, and may you have the courage to share the love and sacrifice of Christ on this blessed Christmas day!

And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them;
and they were terribly frightened.
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior,
who is Christ the Lord. ~ Luke 2:9-11
