I wanted to my last Advent Post to be something that would capture what is going on in my heart as I consider this precious week.
So, here is a glimpse into my morning journal:
December 22, 2008
Good Morning Lord. It is Holy Week.
The last week of Advent. The closing days of the “Christmas Season” as the world has placed it on her calendar.
I am so grateful Lord, that my calendar does not belong to the world.
You Precious Lord, are my calendar.
You are my days, my hours, my minutes, my year.
Your Holy Birth matters to me every minute of EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Although I often fail and fall Lord, You have promised to never leave me or forsake me.
As I read through your Word this is the message that you have for me today:
The people who live in darkness have seen a great light.
For those who live in the shadowland of death, light has dawned.
Your light has “dawned” in my life Lord. Once and forever.
You Jesus, have been born in me.
If you are reading this post and Jesus has not been born in you, you can give HIM the best Gift of all this Christmas.
It will cost YOU nothing. It is easy to apprehend. You do not have to go far to get it.
Simply fall to your knees, open your heart and ask Him to come into your life.
No matter how complicated your life feels right now. No matter how messed up or confused you are.
It is simple, just ask Jesus to be Your Savior, Your Lord, Your King of Kings.
It is DONE!!!
You have blessed Him. You have changed your life.
Today is a new day for you.
Now for a New Birth treat read Romans 8!! You will LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the last verses.
If you have done this for the first time, or if even if you are like me and celebrating multiple years of New Birth, it would be a special Christmas Blessing for me to hear form you!!
