Dynamic December arrives bringing mercy, grace, joy and power. Jesus brings them all. He is the answer to every problem any of us have. His mercies are new every single morning. His grace is sufficient for every need. Joy is a choice, but one we can walk in daily as we think on good things and let gratefulness fill our hearts. Power is the one thing we may not realize we have: power to overcome all the tricks and strategies of the devil.
The thief comes but for to steal, to kill, and to destroy;
But I (Jesus) am come that you might have live and have
it more abundantly. ~ John 10:10
Our Thanksgiving was filled with joy as we had all of our grandchildren except one home for Thanksgiving. Such a blessing. Our daughter, Brooke, blessed us by having the dinner at her home and Jim cooking the turkey. I so love Thanksgiving. It is my most favorite holiday. We missed our granddaughter, Kylie, but got to go and see her this past week in San Marcos. This was our first Thanksgiving without my Mom being with us. It has been almost a year now since her graduation on to Heaven. We all miss her.
Many Thanksgivings we get together with my brother, Buddy, and his family but didn’t get to this year and also didn’t get to have Shea with us as we usually do.
Here are the ones we did have:
Troubles May Surround Us
Even through troubles may surround us, we have the same spirit in us, (as born again Christians), that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Can you even imagine this? John and I are understanding this more and more.
Jesus is the Reason for the Season
As we celebrate the month of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ, I always think on this
strengthening quote I read years ago in a Christmas card:
Thank you, Jesus, for paying the price of sin and sickness for us. Because of YOU, we can have peace, joy, health, prosperity and eternal life.
So here is December dancing in with its array of bright lights, shopping, and joyful memories to be made.
John 16:33 The Passion Translation (TPT)
33 And everything I’ve taught you is so that the peace which is in me will be in you and will give you great confidence as you rest in me. For in this unbelieving world you will experience trouble and sorrows, but you must be courageous,[a] for I have conquered the world!”[b]
May December Shower Blessings on You Each Day
This is such a wonderful time of year. I pray for each of you that you have many special memories to recall past Christmases and that this one will be one of many memories made to bring your heart joy.
