Mas-Christ (More of Christ this Christmas! 

​I was talking to a young man this  morning who looked so sad, I asked why and he told me no one gave him a present, I asked if he had given a gift to anybody,  he said no because he was saving his money…I almost told him that maybe his family/friends are saving their money too!

    Then by driving downtown and seeing how people are flocking the malls to make last minute shopping,  I feel like we have materialized this whole Christmas celebration,  to many it is about what they are getting or giving in exchange for what they want or expect from the next person.  

  Nothing wrong with any of this but when the message is lost in between, I think we probably need to give it another name. 

    My prayer is that we use this time and season to reflect on the greatest gift of all, how he gave of himself for us all, how he taught us to love, forgive, show compassion and most importantly serve others. 

  So before we complain about the size, brand or what we didn’t get….let’s be thankful of what we already have.  Let’s be  thankful for  the ability to even open and enjoy these gifts,

Let’s be thankful for  these relationships we have,

Let’s be thankful that Jesus stripped himself of all so that we can have a relationship with God….

 Merry Christmas to you all my friends

Where is your trust? 

​Stop trusting in mere humans who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem

    Isaiah 2:22
It is very easy to put our entire trust in people because of their  ability or opportunity they have to help us in our journey of life.

  The downside to this is that they could die, lose their fortune, change their mind or even commit to somebody else or project.  

  When we fully trust in God, he will cause people to come our way and execute his purpose for our life. 

  Before you get mad at who wasn’t there, who didn’t help the way you wanted. Please know that it is God who moves the right people to be involved in our lives.  

   Today whether you see it or not, God has placed people in your life to help, encourage,  uplift , comfort and be a blessing to. Ask the Lord to show you who they are or to open your eyes and do the needful.

Have a blessed day as you be a blessing to someone one else.
