Peace on Earth

                                                                                                
I have to say that I am sad to see Thanksgiving gone. But it was such a blessing, I was sick-which was ok,  I was with family and couldn’t have asked for anything better. Most important of all I was with my savior, my King, Jesus Christ. I do have to admit it wasn’t the perfect Thanksgiving {and it’s not all about that} but it was the best.  God is showing me some new things this season. I had to be still and let go of the “to do” list. I’m lister type of person, have lists for everything. I’m learning to be content with today and what it brings. For today is a gift, ……..let us rejoice and be glad in it {Psalm 118:24}. We are not promised tomorrow, so make the most of today. {easier said than done}
As tomorrow will begin, the first day of December, I am reminded of the true meaning of CHRISTmas. The one and only reason He came into this world….”for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only begotten son that who so ever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16. He came so that we will have eternal life with Him, for those who belive in Him. He came in such a lowly way, there was no extravagent entry. He wasn’t even born in a hospital, not even a nurse. But there He lay in a manger, a troth of where the animals ate, so innocent, so humble. How incredible that is, those things didn’t matter to God. It’s funny to think, I got to chose what hospital my babies would be born in and even got to pick the day she was born. But not Jesus…….he came so that we might live!! That was His main purpose……….It’s amazing! His love for us is truely amazing. Everyday He is there, everyday with open arms ready to begin again with us. Would you bask in His love for you today. He LOVES you sooo much that He gave His life for you.
Amoungst my remindings I came across this great December Challenge that Woman Living Well is doing. It was another great reminder to not get caught in all the hustle and bustle. But to really, really seek His face. Be at His feet, rest in His never ending loving arms. In my quiet time I love to picture myself running up to God, like a giddy little girl, and Him having His big arms wide open to catch me and rock me in His loving arms. It’s the greatest feeling and picture. And it’s real….it’s so real I could feel it, I could feel His arms hugging me. Can you? Just imagine it and let it come to life. Some people have asked me recently how I spend my quiet time and tell them just that. Just being, being with Him. I remember when I was a little girl, all day long {during the summer time} I would wait, and wait for my daddy to come home. I’m sure I drove my mom nuts I think I asked 20 times in a day “When is Daddy coming home”. I would yearn to see my Daddy, just to be in His arms {Mom I love you dearly}. Then when He finally would come home I would run up to Him and embrace His arms. And that’s just how I spend my time with God, only He’s always there all the time, I don’t have to wait to be with Him.
Ok, on to the Challenge…I am linking up to WLW. Go check it out and listen to this short video. I just love this precious lady. I love the exhortation she gives. She is a great example for me.
Be blessed and remember eyes on God. Don’t forget to talk to Him throughout the day. Run in His arms!
Running to the King,
Adrienne
