I needed this. Do you?

“Show courage. People need to see what it looks like. Show it. Then feel it.” – Beth Moore
“Stay alert, stand firm…show courage, be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NET)
I need to be more aware of this. I don’t think that I have courage in most situations, but looking back on an event in my life, I most certainly did. Can I see if I showed courage? Not really. Did others see it in me? I hope so. I pray so.
I want to show love and kindness on a daily basis. That is my goal. No matter the situation, I want someone to say that I have been kind and shown love—that His light shines through me.
Blessings and love.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 KJV
I am working on my goals for next year. Working on walking, running…staying strong. Renewing strength in my faith…and my life.
What are you goals for 2019? What are you going to work on for new year?
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
Blessings! And Merry Christmas! 🎄🎁
John 3-16 – Love
Today, two days before Christmas, a perfect reminder of what the season is about. Show love today with joy and kindness.
Luke 1:26-33 – The Birth of Jesus Foretold
26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid,Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.
Today I am thankful for the gifts of friendship. Those that God has placed in my path when I needed them the most or when they needed me.
Looking back on how God has gifted me with placement of friends, I am truly amazed at His ability to weave His love into me.
Whether they needed me at the time or I needed them…I am really not sure, but God did. He placed exactly who I needed at the right time.
How has God gifted your life? Looking back on your life, can you see His path?
Regardless of your political affiliation…
“Praying that God opens our eyes today to people who feel invisible, who never hear that they are loved and rarely receive a warm embrace.” -Beth Moore
Blessings today and always.
