I have been thinking about writing my Christmas Letter for 2009… yes!!! that is right I have only been THINKING about writing it. Every time I sit down to write it I think of a hundred of things to do OR I sit there thinking what do I tell you about this year. Last year I endured many different things and now I feel like I am always busy, but not too much seems to show for that. So no more procrastinating on writing that letter because it is underway…
I definitely can tell you that once I can get over myself then it will just come to me. I will be able to share the joys and the trials so eloquently that it will bring God the most glory.
On another note: Last Sunday’s sermon by Dr. Peter Beck was intense. The main thing that stuck out to me was how he told a story about stealing the baby Jesus out of a friend’s nativity scene. He said he took it because our nativity scenes are all unbiblical! Jesus did not come to Earth to be a baby in a manger or any of that, but He came to go to the cross. WOW! Slap in the face. Then this Sunday, Jon spoke about how do we get peace from the Lord….something that I have been looking for a lot lately! The conclusion: WE have to have FAITH in God’s promises and TRUST them with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength. This is what brings about the fruit of the Spirit: PEACE! (Luke 2:8-16)
I have been extremely slack on keeping up with the blog entries, but I look forward to picking back up with them during Christmas break and in to the new 2010 year! With life tossing us to and fro I will try to articulate the goodness and mercy of the Lord on His children whether they are obedient or not. Lord help me to be more like You…increase my FAITH!
