Opening up the presents and surrounding yourself with the loved ones and indulging in yummy delicacies is not all what Christmas is about. It is surely about holding on to the Very Gift of Life and the Gift of Light even when the front reel show of our lives do not add up to the rear real picture.
Battling a divorce and combating several fears is what I get to do behind the scenes. Yet, putting myself out here, right where I still am, in the middle of everything could be the most uncomfortable thing I choose to do for a very real reason.
If a life like my own, even in the midst of the most hopeless and helpless situation can spread a ray of Hope and Joy for the multitude of souls that have seen enough weariness, then I want to bring all that Glory and Praise to the one and only truth abiding pulse of my life, my God, my Christ!
He is persistent in pursuing you; adamant in coming forth even when there is struggle; constant in showing up in most uncommon ways and consistent in turning the tables in your favor!
Its not your battle anymore, It becomes His when you own Him.
He does not cease from developing us to be the most beautiful souls we ought to become, even if that means allowing us to walk through the fiery-pit or lions-den! Only because He knows want He can do when He is present with us in any situation.
Walking through the unending valleys of this life, I do not surrender to any sort of fear. Not because, I have all the courage I need but because I know the One who’s got it all… the power I need in every single hour of my need.
My plains are not where no trouble is but right where my God is, that is right here in the middle of everything !!! Hence a Happy Birthday to my Miracle-Worker, Ground-Shaker, Mountain-Mover and Problem-Solver….the true gift of my life, Jesus!
If anything this Christmas, I choose to indulge in more of Christ! Perhaps, the most delicious treat there ever is!
