It’s getting closer! Christmas. The end of the year. The end of this pandemic.
What are your thoughts? I know it’s a complete jumble inside my thought-processor these days.
I find it really hard in these days of “Information Overload” to figure out what’s real or opinion or a mixture of the two.
Throughout this year, more than ever before, I’ve been trying to hang onto Jesus, like he’s the truth; as if he’s going to save me from this sch-mozzle. Oh wait! Haha-silly me! He already has.
So, therein lies my decision to not watch the news everyday. I find all it does is raise my anxiety levels. I prefer instead to bend my ear to the Good News and remember the truth that God has come, is already here and is coming again. He is the Great I AM. What a relief that we do not need to depend on the latest ideas coming at us through social media or the desk of some self-appointed fountain of knowledge, but look to the One who created the heavens, the earth and all that they contain. When I look there I find Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.
Wherever you are these holidays, I pray that you will find Jesus coming to you also-maybe in the hope found in a child’s eyes; the peace of still frosty day, the joy of an unexpected phone call from a loved one, the love of one who would lay down their life for you.
I hope you are blessed through these musical offerings.
