This morning as I spend time with you in the quietness of my home, I reminded of what this Christmas season is all about! Lord, it is all about you!
Lord, I awoke this morning and I scanned my Facebook page. Post after post talked about the turmoil our country and this world is in at this time. I read some post that brought tears to my eyes as my heart broke for the ones I could tell have not accepted you in their life! Tears fell for the ones who are hurting because of loss of a love one or current life problem. Tears fell over the photos of the sick and homeless. Lord you broke my heart for each of them….
Dear God you showed the ultimate love when you sent your son Jesus. A love like no other! A love that would one day save those who believe in His death and resurrection. God, as a father, I can’t even fathom the thought of sending my son to do what Jesus did for all of us. He bore the pain, the beating, with each nail that pierced his body he screamed out in agony for us. As he labored to take every breath, he shed tears for us. Tears that I often wonder was not for the ones who would accept His sacrifice but for those who wouldn’t! With His final breath he took it all so that we may have everlasting life.
Dear God this Christmas my prayer is that I will be bold to share you with this world! I pray Lord God that people will take the time to understand just how much you love each of them. That your ultimate love is the gift above all other gifts! Lord may this world begin to see your glory and love in your people. May we do like you commanded us to do and love thy neighbors as ourselves! May we pray for our enemies as the Bible says to do. Lord may I ask that we stop playing church but be your hands and feet here on earth to share your love with others.
Lord this Christmas season, I ask that you start awakening in this world. I pray for the hearts that are so harden toward you that they will be broken for you! I pray for an awakening for the hurting that they see your love in their struggle. Lord I pray for our enemies and that they find your love and that will peace will be found! Lord please let this Christmas season be the beginning of something like we haven’t seen for generations. Where not just this season but every day is about you! In your Precious name I pray! Amen
