When God Gave Us Jesus
—the One Who would save us—
Heaven could not contain itself.
Light spilled from a star,
heralding His arrival.
The earth burst into life.
Birds called for revival.
And frightened shepherds
trembled like sheep
when angels awakened
their sleep with song
as light as snowflakes,
as powerful as
a tsunami of harmony
pouring onto earth
at Jesus’ birth.
Oh, praise Him!

May God bless you and your good work in Christ.

Each day of this New Year, may God help us to keep our eyes on Jesus.
Too many distractions! Lord, help us to move over and give You the right of way. Help us to focus on You.
Lord willing, these blogs will help your writing life in Christ.

Even when faith ebbs, the Lord lifts us up.
Praise Christ our Purifier Who filters the spite from our souls and decontaminates our spirits, Who cleanses us from all dross and removes anything ill or gross from our memories and old ways of do…
Even our praise finds its cause in God!
