Merry Christmas Eve!

No matter what this time of year throws at you, or who you might be dreading to see at the family gatherings, we can still offer to God the sacrifice of joy. Like King David did in the tabernacle of the Lord (Psalm 27:? nkjv). We can sing instead of be sorry for ourselves. Imagine that! Merry AND JOYOUS Christmas wishes!

The First Christmas Carol

Last night at church our Pastor spoked on Luke 1:46-55. It was very inspiring! He made the comment that, really, Mary's song is like the first real Christmas carol. Kinda cute take on it, I thought. Anyhoo, the whole message was wonderful, but the reminder to magnify the Lord really challenged me...

Lately, I've allowed my problems to be magnified, which makes God seem really small. But, nay - He is Almighty. His power is tapped when we pray. And faith causes our mighty God to flex that power on behalf of men. Let that sink in!

Mary was expecting the Son of God to show up, in due time. Let's be expecting the same, in each minute of our lives! Take that trouble, all of the them, each one of them, and expect God to deliver, in due time!!

"My soul magnifies the Lord" (Luke 1:46). Psa 34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, And let usexalt His name together.
