Merry Christmas – Is it hard for you to Get Through It?

This is a very lonely time of year for many people. Some suffer amidst the colored lights, festive music, and celebratory feasts and gatherings this time of year.
Pray for those we know that have broken hearts, better yet, if you can, stop by for a visit or send them a card with many thoughts to encourage them.

I can think of many Bible verses that come to mind. Here are a few in case you may need one for yourself:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

For it is written: “Rejoice, O barren, You who do not bear! Break forth and shout, You who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children Than she who has a husband.”(Galatians 4:27)

“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” John 14:18

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4

We celebrate the birth of the Christ child at Christmas because He is GOD WITH US.
Emmanuel! We never have to be alone. He came to us so he could relate to us in a personal way. He came as a baby to be vulnerable and relatable to his mother.

God knew that the Pentateuch (the first five books in the bible written by Moses I believe) would not be enough. Even though Gabriel showed up at times in the Bible and Jesus himself, God the Father knew man would need more than that to build his church. As prophesied from the beginning, God had a plan of salvation for man because of the sin of Adam, which we are all born with, through the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ. He is God Incarnate.

God could have just shown up anywhere on the planet, but chose to be fully human for us. No other deity has come to a man that way but has just been made up by a man with stone or wood or gold or another God-made object. Nothing from man has ever been made that has not already been made from things God made.

Humankind made up people to be gods, saying they got some divine message from some angel or something from out of this world. Even their messengers were made by God. There is only ONE true God.

Isn’t it time you have a talk with him? He is listening. He is ever near you since the day you were formed in your mother’s womb. He knows you. He loves you. He has a plan for you that is far better than any plan you have for your own self.

Merry Christmas. Jesus is all I need. No tree, no tinsel, no presents, no cards in the mail addressed to me. All I need is time with him. He is my gift this Christmas.

I like to write for the pure enjoyment of writing short excerpts about life in general. I would want my writing to bring inspiration or encouragement to the faint-hearted or those looking for some direction, purpose, or meaning. I am searching daily for what it is God wants me to do and who he wants me to become. It is a growing pain for me. We all have something new we can learn and share with others.

    1. I prayed first, I prayed hard and long and serious about how I usually feel. God helped and I could feel how something inside me was different. I had such a good time with “everyone”, loving on each member of the family. It was amazing. Prayer works!
