Jesus Christ is the reason for this season!

Start a new family tradition by reading the story of our Saviors birth with your family tonight. Keep the true meaning of Christmas alive.

John 3:16, for God so loved the world (All people), He gave His only son in order to save all of creation from His own destruction……. our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ left His Father in Glory to be born into a world of sin, (Luke 2:1-20).  While here on earth, He taught Gods Word and when the time came (John 10:9, chapt 14), He (Jesus) allowed His own life to be taken, so that we might have the right to eternal life, Isaiah 53:5.

Live Life in the Moment, Enjoy Your “Right Now”

I posted this some time ago, but the same applies during this Holiday Season. Don’t get so busy trying to find the perfect gifts and going to parties that you forget what this season is really all about. The ultimate gift of a Savior for the world.

Some of us are so busy trying to find that perfect relationship, that perfect look, or even trying to achieve that perfect lifestyle, that we forget to just enjoy the ride getting to where we ultimately would like life to be.

You will never get this time back. Take the pressure off of yourself and ask God to help you to live for Him and to be content with your “here and now”.

“Tis the season” for The Christmas Blues,

“Tis’ the season” that so many are sad, lonely and lose hope. The very time in which we chose to rejoice and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, satan purposely causes depression, hopelessness, anxiety or the pain of the death of a loved one to increase drastically. Yes the pain is real, but I also believe it is to distract us from the joy of the season, since it seems to increase so much during this Holiday season.

The bible says “if we submit to God, we can resist the devil and he must flee”, he will literally run away! (James 4:7) along with the anxiety, sadness and loneliness he brings. Begin your healing by spending time with The Lord first thing every morning. Christ, of His own will, came into a sin filled world, lived, taught and gave His life for us! Talk to Him (praying) as if He is right beside you (He is)! First, thank Him for being Lord of all, then confess your sins, he knows them already, He just wants to know you will tell Him. Thank Him for keeping you even in that sin, tell Him your concerns, your pain, and fears. Don’t forget to pray for others and then end your prayer by thanking Him, for what He’s done, and for what He’s going to do. Rejoice and Make it a “Merry Christmas” and a Happy New Year!

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper” Isaiah 54:17, “I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4). “Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God” (Psalm 42:5).

When Tragedy Strikes

Tragedy can strike our lives in an instant. When we lose a loved one unexpectedly, it is in these moments that we begin to reflect and look at life differently. We see life as the precious gift that it is. How do you as a couple handle death? Do you support one another, do you talk about what you are feeling, are you compassionate one to another, realizing that each one of us handles death differently.

We are God’s creation, not strong enough to overcome grief to the point of handling death as the word declares we ought to. We can’t imagine life without our loved ones and definitely can’t immediately do as the bible declares we should rejoice at the end of a believer’s life and mourn when a new life comes into this world. The believer is going to be with the Savior (Jesus Christ) in Glory but the new life is bound to endure pain, sorrows and the hardships of this world. Death truly does sometimes come as a thief in the night so be encouraged that “To be absent from the body is to be present with Lord”( 2 Corinthians 5). Be humble, be kind, live for today, hope for tomorrow, and plan for the future.
