It's Christmas day!
As presents are being opened, as Hugs are being distributed, as joy is being had, I find myself wanting more. More than what can fit under a tree or in a house. I want to know and understand the true meaning behind Christmas. I am a believer. A Christian. But I find myself caught up in things of this world. I find myself trying to control my environment. I find myself wanting to know and understand the true meaning behind the birth of our saviour.
On my flight home this time, I was hit face to face with how little I trust, how little I understand and how little I try. Trying to control my situation I found myself begging God for my way. He was gracious to give me the desire of my heart even though I sat as a child throwing a tantrum. It was in these moments that i realized I had lost sight of who he was.... Is.
As the day, weeks and months unfold I look forward to fully grasping the saving love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I look forward to finding again the passion He showed me so long ago.
As I open presents this Christmas, my hope is that I will be unwrapping the grace of God on my life.
Anyway, these are some of my Christmas desires.
I hope that this morning/day you are finding joy with your loved ones.
I hope that today you are finding Joy in the Love of Christ.
MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIENDS!
