Is it going to be a Blue Christmas for you this year? Even as I write these words I can hear Elvis singing about it being "a blue Christmas without you".
Yes, without Him, the incarnate Son of God, Christmas pales and really has no lasting meaning. When Christ came He brought light, the Light of life, to a dark world. His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection offered a sure and steadfast hope to those who trusted Him.
The picture I've included on this post reminds me of the light that Christ brings when He is given room in the busyness and messiness of our lives.
The "blues" turns to light, the true Light, when Jesus is introduced to the picture. Please make room for the King of Glory this Christmas.
He's waiting at the door...
"There it was...the true Light [was then] coming into the world [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] that illumines every person." - John 1:9 (The Amplified Bible)
So very true...it is so easy to let the glare of Christmas lights we surround ourselves with to become our focus that we ignore the True Christmas Light...to our detriment (we are so easily dazzled eh?)ReplyDelete
I like your blog...and your taste in pictures;)
I pray you and your entire family have a 'brilliant' Christmas holiday!
Sincere smiles and blessings,
Thank you for the reminder. I have had a rough past 2 weeks. Lot's of family and friends with illnesses, etc. And I realized that I lost my direction. I am going to redirect myself. God, Family and Friends. Those are my priorities. It's so easy to get side tracked and off the path and forget your purpose.ReplyDelete
"Dear Father, I need You. I acknowledge that I have been directing my own life and that, as a result, I have sinned against You. I thank You that You have forgiven my sins through Christ's death on the cross for me. I now invite Christ to again take His place on the throne of my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit as You commanded me to be filled, and as You promised in Your Word that You would do if I asked in faith. I now thank You for directing my life and for filling me with the Holy Spirit."
Thanks for allowing me to "redirect" here!
