The Best Gift Ever

25 12 2013

Today I am praying that you have a day filled with joy, touched by peace, saturated with smiles, and wrapped in warm love. As you open your presents, spend time with family, eat delicious food, and enjoy holiday traditions, take a moment to be quiet with your God and thank Him for the best gift ever.

“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” – Isaiah 7:14

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” – John 1:14 

“Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!” – 2 Corinthians 9:15

My Jesus Resolution today is to be thankful for all of my gifts. I am surrounded by the reality of God’s love for me. Blessings fill the corners of my house and the spaces in my heart. I want to catch a glimpse of the enormity of God’s love for me, His protection, care, and kindness. Most of all, today I want to stop and, just for a moment, let the reality of Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection take my breath away. He is the best gift of all.
