Tonight New Years Eve. This is the night when I used to drink like a coy fish and drive like a wild armadillo out in the wilderness. Glad for God's grace -- Don't need to drink now! "Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don't participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy." ~ Paul, (Rom. 13:13)

Do you feel thousands of miles away from God and the will of God for your life? He's only a prayer in Jesus' Name.. away.
No Kurt, I'm here cuz I made a mistake. I blew it.
Well, I've done that before. Can relate. But Moses could have said that too.. on the back side of the desert. And think about it. He met his wife back there.. "where we wasn't supposed to be due to his mistake/sin." God has a time for each of us to be taught to turn, to trust, to be a servant, to get into a new game so to speak. Romans 8:28-29 is still in the Bible and He has a timing for everything.
So blessed, so at rest, so unstressed -- that's how I feel today. Has life been hard for you? So sorry. It's always been hard, but God is still good and He does have a plan.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 106:1
Thanks Lord. I feel so grateful for Calvary, God.. for Your unending love that was demonstrated there. How great to be born again, sealed or locked into Your love by the Holy Spirit who is living inside us.
Christ’s death and physical resurrection are the measure of God’s love for you and me.
Quit time now? Nope. Let us do what we might not feel like doing -- not quiting. Let's not become weary in doing good in glorifying the Lord.

"But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, 'Abba, Father'. so you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir." ~ Paul, Gal 4:4-6. God is still in control. He still has an excellent purpose -- a really good plan and u in mind. And He still keeps his promises. Yes, has a whole lot of them for u too.

Hit stop. Hit admit it. Hit quit it, Hit appropriate it.. His righteousness. Hit rest. Hit listen up.
Feel afraid or depressed? Or do you have peace inside. 79 percent of Americans believe that a terrorist attack is imminent on U.S. turf.
Pray through to the Father in Jesus Name. Connect vertically with the One that you need to connect with most. Expect not any one day like Christmas to make you happy. His presence gives joy, not mere temporal presents.
Go do something for someone else who has it worse off than you currently have it. This actually releases endorphins and more than that (you've heard of the runner's high, well this is called "the giver's high" for real. Got no money, no prob. Give a good witness away today). Help the reader come to you now as they are Jesus and receive eternal life. Free!

It's not too late to get to know the Christ of Christmas -- what would make for a better holiday season? Nothing would. But angels..praise God -- were saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” Luke 2:14

By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path. I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back from living by your righteous order. (msg.)

Selfless Christmas Love Righteously Crossed The Border Of Heaven To Earth In The Person Of Jesus.. To Reach You.

People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world would we waste our lives as witnesses for Christ or as missionaries for Him. They forget that they too are expending their lives.. and when the bubble has burst so to speak, they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted if they refuse to get to know Him.
Jesus once said, "..Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee." 5|19mark.bible
“Jesus did not say that the whole world should go to Church, but rather that the Church should go to the whole world.” ~ Greg Laurie
Merriest Christmas! Is there any good reason why you wouldn't.. today, here and now, where you currently are.. give your life over to Christ.
The greatest of all Christmas gifts is Jesus bringing peace and forgiveness to lost people.
Do you struggle at times to find the right words to talk about the Gospel to a friend or someone at work ..who hasn't yet accepted it?
If so, the apostle Peter offers a refreshingly flexible approach to sharing our faith with people in need. He urges us to give others a reason to ask about our hope in Christ (3:15).
If we honor Jesus Christ as Lord in our hearts first, the difference it makes in our lives will prompt questions with them (v. 15).
Peter envisions the kind of change.. the spiritual transformation that others will envy—in the best sense of the word.
Those living under the influence of Christ will treat one another with compassion and humility (v. 8). They won't return evil for evil, or insult for insult, but rather blessings for curses (v. 9).
This difference in our lives as Christians will help others open themselves up to receiving the best gift they could ever receive. You know, it's like one beggar who found fresh and free bread.. showing another beggar where to find it. www.knowGod.org

Any of us humans can let you down, but Christ never will. Get your eyes off of people, even really wonderful people, and get your eyes on the Lord. Give Him Your heart and praise.

You are God--my liberating King! You set us free, You broke the chains.. totally manumitted me--You came, were born in a manger, died on a tree, arose.. to set the captives free--people that now see. Your Grace won't fail me or these.

That's exactly what the first Christmas was all about. Light from God entering in this dark world. It's about God sending His own Son Jesus to rescue us from our sin, our bad habits of wrong-doin', from and eternity apart from His love and His heaven. It's about His light -- I love it when this fallen place of hopelessness and those living here on earth.. get all “lit-up” by His Holy Spirit -- just illuminated with hope inside again! It can happen.
Remember the first Christmas and how, “the glory of the Lord shone around” em out tending their woolly flocks (Luke 2:9).
It happened around common shepherds ..not powerful folk or celebs.. who were out doing their simple work. They saw it that holy light, and what came next? This did, a cool rendition of “Glory to God in the Highest” by God's angelic choir (v. 14).
The shepherds had to go check it all out in Bethlehem to see if what the angels said had some veracity (v. 15). It did. The Bible says, “When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child” (v. 17). That's what we get to do after we encounter the living Christ! We get to know him well and go make Him well known. But who among us has not yet clearly heard the Christmas Message and I mean, understood it? Who has not at all had the Gospel spread as far as to them? If it has gotten to you.. if you were born of God's Spirit, then this Christmas has more meaning. So why not pray and share Christ's Message of hope with others. He is still “the light of the world”—that has come (John 8:12). So would you perhaps pray something like this...
Lord, thanks for the manger, the Cross and the empty tomb. It's so great to know You all year around. It's better than epic! But many people around us are lacking funds, hope, joy, opportunities etc. Many of them deeply miss their loved ones during this time of year, and some feel really depressed inside not quite sure of what they are missing--what they were designed for. In Jesus's Name please help me during this Christmas season to shine brightly, so that they can benefit from your Good News. With joy running over, with Your kind of sensitivity and honesty, just keep and use us believers to tactfully reflect the light of Your presence and goodness to hurting people that we come across. Amen.
