The Holiday Begins
The holiday is officially beginning for me. Last night I enjoyed one last time with my eternal family before the new year approaches. It is difficult because I love this family. I look forward to seeing them, talking with them, hugging them, watching them, listening to them, learning from them, and loving them. I need that every week. I may get the opportunity to see some of them over the Christmas break and I am going to make an effort to do so. But I fear, I fear a lack of support and lack of love.
In the Midst of Fear
In the midst of my fear I realized that I forgot the very person I had been focusing on relying on the most. This would be my relationship with Jesus Christ. Without Him I would not have this eternal family to love on and for them to love me.
This Christmas break I will continue the intimate friendship I began about a month or more ago. This friendship is a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Whenever I feel alone, not loved, abandoned, angry, anxious, upset, uncared for; I turn to Him. I need Him more than ever these next two weeks.
Sing Praises of Love
This morning, as I was reading, I came across this verse:
“Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.” Psalm 47:6
I thought about my longing to be loved. My longing is for a perfect love; like the ones you hear about in fairy tales and love songs. Ya know, the kind that most, if not all of us, never seem to find or it never seems to last. Today, I dedicate singing a love song to my Prince who will always provide me with the kind of love I crave.
I want to encourage you to play your favorite love song or read your favorite fairy tale. But this time, change the words a little bit and sing it or read it to the Lord. You will feel His love fill your soul.
