Just Rambling

It is almost Christmas eve and as I think of Christmas past I can say this one is not that much different.I’ve never been able to buy a large amount of gifts & things  and I haven’t decorated in many years,since my 2 children are now grown.I have to admit there are moments when I wish I could give,but then I am so thankful for the Holy Spirit for he will bring my thoughts back in line. For when I look around and see how blessed I am,then I have no reasons to feel sorry for my self or sad! For I am blessed because I know the Savior whose birthday we are celebrating and I have a good mind,good health and a big appetite(lol) I have a place to lay my head,a car and loads of family & friends that love me! So I will Praise God for all of my blessings,for there are many  with less than this,and for them I will pray for God to lift their Spirits. Luke 2:9a Suddenly,an angel of the Lord appeared among them,and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them.10 But the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid”!he said.”I bring you good news of great joy for everyone. 11  The Saviour-yes,the messiah,the Lord-has been born tonight in Bethlehem,the city of David! Yes I am so blessed to know the Saviour.Love in Christ

Be Encouraged

Usually there is a lot of sadness and depression around this time of the year,and more so now with so many losing there jobs.I hope these scriptures give you hope,and that you will turn your eyes & heart toward God.Ecclesiastes 7:11~14 Being wise is as good as being rich;in fact,it is better. Wisdom or money can get you almost anything,but it’s important to know that only wisdom can save your life.Notice the way God does things and then fall into line.Don’t fight the ways of God,for who can straighten out what he has made crooked? Enjoy your prosperity while you can.But when hard times strike  realize that both come from God.That way you will realize that nothing is certain in this life. God is still in total control and his love for you will not change,Jesus is just a prayer away. Be encouraged God does care!

Love in Christ

God’s Presence With Us

As we celebrate another Christmas I am reminded of why God sent his Son Jesus.It is because of God’s love for us and God wants us to know Him personally. Some wonder how can we really know God,but for us that beieve it’s no problem. For it is by Faith that we know Jesus came all the way from Heaven just to reconcile us with our Father.When we see Jesus in all his goodness and mercy we see God,I think about how Jesus was beating & suffered so much before he went to the cross. And of his suffering in the garden when things were really pressing  Him,but God gave Him comfort,just as he will us. I think of the theft on the cross who only said Lord remember me when you enter your Kingdow and such Mercy Jesus showed him. Jesus is so full of love for us all,and His presence here is to show us God! God’s presence through Jesus is to draw us to Him in all his love.It’s so wonderful to be saved even with my many trials it is all Worth it,just to know Jesus-and my Father God. John 14:6~10
