Hope at Christmas

The big day has arrived. It’s Christmas!

Are you excited? Or, does Christmas mean something less than happiness for you this year? If the latter is you, I understand. I’ve had some tough Christmas seasons in my life in previous years.

There’s something about Christmas that is so special…and at the same time, when life isn’t going the way you wish it would, Christmas seems to magnify that for whatever reason.

I just want to encourage you that if that is you, just know that you are loved. So much, in fact, that God sent His only son to this world for you and me to give us the gift of life. Eternal life! It’s the gift of hope, and it’s available at any time.

I hope that will provide some comfort if you are in a difficult season right now. We get to celebrate the birth of a Savior today, and He’s with us, through it all.

Merry Christmas.

Equipped to Love

“With the power of the Spirit, we are equipped to love our neighbor as ourselves today.”
–Mark Shields

I read this quote the other day and it stuck with me.

With all the fighting in the world that goes on, the disagreements, the hurt feelings…this is so important to internalize.

We have the power to love people. We have the power to love people as we would like to be loved. It’s there. We just need to tap into it.

Thanks, Mark – for the reminder, the motivation and the encouragement.

Have a great day. Go show some love to someone, while you’re at it. 🙂

When God Shows Up

“When God shows up, He usually shows up through you!”
-Phil Schneider

Hearing these words made an impact on me the other day.

It makes total sense, when you think about it. We all have the ability to love like Jesus, to make an impact on others’ lives like Jesus, to be world changers like Jesus.

It requires us to be willing to do it, of course. 🙂

Ah, but when that happens, God shows up…and He can show up in a big way, even bigger than you could imagine.

As Mr. Schneider also pointed out, “There are God moments waiting for you today.”

So, what are you waiting for? Go find yours! Have a great day.
