Just thinking today...winter is a season of death in the natural-with the anticipation of new life.
One beautiful purpose of Christmas is to take time to meditate on the GIVER himself. The Giver of LIFE (from death), hope, peace, joy...an endless list of gifts from Him.
I'm asking God today to give me eyes to see where He wants to birth life from places that have been nothing but death in me.
"Jesus told her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.'"John 11:25 NLT)
What hope there is for everyone because of baby Jesus-the ONE alone worth complete celebration this Christmas!! Thank you Lord, for life today. The life of Jesus and the abundant life I am enabled to live because of You!!
