Advent In Your Heart


So it’s a beautiful, Advent season with peace and joy and happiness oozing in all directions and wonderful things are going down all over the world and in yours right? Not!!!!

It’s a crazy, mixed up world and yours is too and peace is the laughing stalk of the town right now! How is it that we’re to have peace when the world’s in chaos and the countries are at war and the bombs are dropping and the refugees are fleeing and ISIS is taking and lives are being sacrificed and there’s no respect for anything or anyone anymore?

So ~ government laws are passed that are way out of Biblical bounds and have far reaching and detrimental impact on future generations, and we’re suppose to be ok with that? Yeah, it’s a crazy world and the governments are oh so powerful but oh so weak! So ironic isn’t it?

Advent

But come now again to Bethlehem! See the babe lying quietly in the manger. Look at Him! See for yourself! Our joy doesn’t lie in our governments and in our world leadership. Our peace doesn’t come from all that goes on around us, not even for a second. Our joy doesn’t lie in our happiness! It’s deeper than that. It’s stronger than that and it’s more accessible than anything this world can offer. As Christ ones, a Savior was born to us on that night long ago, under a Bethlehem star, so bright it lit up the world to make the heavenly announcement of the birth of “Peace”, the Prince of Peace, the Eternal Father, The Counselor, God’s son. Oh yeah, He’s our peace at this glorious Advent season. Our peace in the midst of heartache, sorrow, panic and fear. He’s our joy when happiness goes South and everything that can go wrong does. Our Lord and our King carries the weight of the world on His shoulders and the governments are under His rule and His reign. Nothing will go down that He doesn’t order! You can know that! In spite of nasty world events and a world turned topsy tur-vy and bad laws being passed and bad news everywhere in a crazy, mixed up world, we have a winner ruling our lives and giving counsel for abundant living through all the ragged edges!

So, come now to a glorious, peaceful and joyous Advent season! It’s in your own heart! That’s where you’ll find it. Even when the world is reeling in anguish and joy is non existent, our beautiful souls can praise the God of our Salvation and sing “Joy To The World” to a world that has none and needs lots. Oh how marvelous are His works and how wonderful are His ways. ~k

Isaiah 9: 6,7
“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.”

“T’was The Night Before Advent


So it’s here; the night before Advent! A time of anticipation and a time of reflection as we turn our focus from the hectic to the hushed, from the busy to the quiet, and from the excitement of Christmas preparation, to the anticipation of one Royal birth; the awesome birth of our Saviour. The One who left His divine credentials behind to enter the world as God yet man, arrived in baby form, shape and size! He entered into crude surroundings to bring Light and Truth and establish Hope for our weary, worn hearts from generation to generation. Oh aren’t we glad He did?

Yeah, there are still very busy days ahead to prepare for this Birthday of all Birthday events, but on this sweet night, the night before Advent, when the lights twinkle with glimmer and sparkle with festivities, our hearts can be stilled and our minds quieted before this most astounding event that went down in history. We can be amazed at the most Holy Light of the World that was born into this most unholy world of darkness to make a difference in the hearts of His people.

He’s the brightest light for everyone everywhere to see and to know! Oh yes, beautiful soul, hush for the hectic and quiet from the busy ‘cuz on this night before Advent, we get to unwrap the most precious Light of all; the Light of God’s most amazing love and we get to share it with the world of darkness in so much need.
Unwrap God’s love tonight.

Unwrap God’s Love

What’s All The Noise About Hope?

dsc_5793

So, what’s all the noise and fuss about lighting this candle of hope at Advent season? What’s hope anyway in this bad, sad world of ours? What’s up with hope anyways in the wars, the riots, the killings, the shootings, the earthquakes, and all the ‘not so great things’ that happen daily in our own lives and in our own worlds? Hope? Is it some pie in the sky crutch to help Christ ones over the rough patches or some kind of brainwashing that has believers totally running off the reality track? What is it? Where is it and how on the wide side of the earth do we find hope within a world such as this? A world in such utter disarray and chaos? Is this thing Hope, really for real or just some word tossed about to get us by and give us some kind of false idea that all will be better by and by?dsc_6298

Yeah, it is for real! It resides in the hearts and minds of Christ’s disciples ~ in the hearts and minds of His followers. Hope resides there because His followers have tasted of the healing and forgiveness and faithfulness of the Lord and witnessed His hand of goodness even through the storms, the losses, the trials and the fires. Prophecies foretold of this wondrous hope splashed all through the pages of scripture, of this One who would step down from heaven and enter as the only solution, into a world crushed by sin and torn apart by it’s ruthless destruction. He would enter as a babe, so tender, so helpless, so human yet so divine! He would enter humbly and be laid in a manger as the Light of world! As the Saviour of the world! Yes, let’s light a candle to symbolize this Hope for the world! Prophecy foretold the Good news of His coming to take away the ugly sin-stain of mankind and heal their land, their hearts and their souls. Isaiah’s words to Hezekiah in Isaiah 40: 1-5 were words of comfort for the people of Israel at a very difficult time. It was a message of encouragement with the good news of forgiveness, reconciliation, and restoration. A message still so real and relevant for us today as we sit in a broken world with broken lives ravaged by sin! And ah, yes, beautiful soul, He did come! He came as a babe to live, and walk among us and die and yet rise to defeat death so that our own hearts can be healed and forgiven and made new because the Light of the World came into the world! He came to seek and to save that which is lost. That’s you and I and because of this great event in history, we don’t have to continue to live in the darkness and the ruins of sin that so easily entangle us and make the world the bad, sad world that it is.

Oh yes, the hope is real and for ‘very’ real for sure!! There is Hope laced throughout the brokenness and the darkness of this dismal world, in the form of a Saviour, the Light of the world.

Isaiah 40: 1 – 5
Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins. A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD ; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

John 8:12
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Proverbs 13:12
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Relax! Enjoy this Christmas season as we celebrate the birthday of our Lord and Savior ~ The Messiah, Our King! Find the Hope, love and warmth that’s tucked inside God’s beautiful gift, given to a needy world, and let it make a difference in your life.

Feeling alone? So were the lowly shepherds, out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night after night after night. It was they who were chosen to receive the birth announcement with exquisite, “Out Of This World” props!! A star of wonder, lit the sky and 3D angels with muti-media and surround sound filled the heavens to proclaim this royal event. The lonely, lowly shepherds followed the star, sought him out, found Him in the stable and knelt to worship Him. I wonder if you’ve found Him? Wise men went searching for Him and wise men still do! Wise men found Him and wise men still do.

“When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child”.…
