Merry Christmas!

Print

Not everyone has the gift of family and friends to spend Christmas with, and some people have family that makes Jacob’s brood look kind and loving. In light of that, we’ve asked for a blessing to cover all of you, however your story is written. Here is what the Spirit gave.

You are seen and you are loved and you are not alone.

You have no one around, but you are not alone. You are loved beyond measure. May your days be filled with the presence and light of the Father, may you experience His perfect peace and joy, and may you receive the full measure of His LOVE for you so that you can return it and know the bliss of the only perfect companionship possible.

You enter the lions’ den, and the lions wear the faces of family. You are not alone. Where you step, Christ steps; where you sit, He sits. May you experience the wonder of Psalm 91, may you “abide in the shadow of the Almighty,” may you know such safety and peace and LOVE in the arms of the Father that you witness the miracle of loving your enemies firsthand.

You have family and friends, and it is a happy thing to see them. You, too, are not alone. May you know the joy of loving others as you yourself are loved by our heavenly Father – freely and without expectation. May you impart the contentment that comes with being seen – really seen – and being loved as only Christ can. May you know the blessing of cherishing the family God gave you without entanglement.

Above all, we join you in celebrating Immanuel, “God with us.” He’s alive, and because He lives, life is worth living. We thank you, Father, for the Priceless Pearl, Your Son, Jesus Christ!

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 KJV

For the week between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, we’ll be posting some truly amazing articles by Martha. These articles take a deeper look at both familiar and unfamiliar Christmas stories: Zacharias, Mary, Simeon and Anna. We’re blown away by the Spirit’s insights that were given to Martha, and we pray that you’re blessed by them as much as we have been.

God bless you all, and we’ll see you next year!

Gratitude that can’t be expressed enough — that Father would share His heart through each of you; always exalting the Son and being an encouragement to me to “press on.”
“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.” NU 6:24-26
In His love!

That’s a jolly good Merry Christmas wish.

You “shulamites” today remembered me of a miner, digging up in the depths of the Earth… which in turn made me remember an amazing book which covers that revelation (mining in the bellows of the Earth.)

It is called “The Never Ending Story”, by a german story teller named “Michael Ende.” Of that book (not the films, which are rubish IMHO), some people said, “this book could easily replace half your library.”

I recommend it to you for this vacation time or a good reading for the next year to plunge in it like a child.

Love!!

Yes, thank you. Much love and blessings to you all.

God bless you all right back. I thank God for each of you and praise Him for allowing me to journey with y’all at Shulamite by going to conferences and reading your stories here at Get along with God. You will never know how much you allowing yourself to be exposed has brought me to my knees time and time again and I get lost in His amazing love for me. Again, God bless you all and Merry Christmas!!!
