Our Father in Heaven loves us more than we deserve. It breaks His heart when we stray from His path. He wants only for us to focus on Him and trust in His ways.
He loves us so much, that He sent His only Son, Jesus, down to earth. Thus, allowing Jesus to experience the human feelings of anguish and pain. To teach us about eternal life and show us the way to get it.
Two years ago I received a NKJV Bible for Christmas. I was elated. The words sounded poetic and fresh, with new meaning and insight. I wanted to read it from beginning to end.
On January first, I began to read; “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…” I read every night for several months. One to two chapters a night, with a few minutes to reflect on the words, gave me a sense of peace and helped me easily fall asleep.
For unto to you is born this day in the City of David a Savior which is Christ the Lord.
Christmas can be chaotic with many activities and errands. I hope that amid the cheery lights, colorful packages, and continuous parties you take a moment to remember the announcement given by the angel to the shepherds in the fields; “unto you is born…a Savior which is Christ the Lord.” Spend some time praising and clelebrating this miraculous event.
I wish you a Merry Christmas filled with peace, joy, and goodwill to others.
Until next time, God Bless You.
My title says it all. At least it says how I hope I live my life. My faith in God is a high priority. In all I do, He is consulted. And I do mean everything. I believe that in order to live by faith you need to keep a running conversation going with Him. The Bible says “to pray without ceasing…” My conversations are a form of prayer.
I decided to write this blog so I can share the joy and peace I get from my living by faith. In reading my stories, I hope you will feel a little of what I feel. My goal is that these posts will be an inspiration to you. If my faith, and perhaps yours too, grows stronger, that would be a welcome bonus. It would also be great if we were to develop a new community in Christ and spread the Word.
Until next time, God Bless you.
