In the stillness, late at night, when I look at the crackling fire, the twinkling lights, the reindeer, and the presents all lined up under the tree, my heart glows like the bronze hues of this still and silent image. These moments are filled with contentment, happiness, and joy that comes from knowing God sees me right were I am. He knows me. And He knows that I know Him, so His Holy Spirit comforts me, in those parts of my heart that are not so joyful. You don’t need to know what those parts are, you have your own un-joyful parts to deal with this year.
My prayer today is that you heart will be filled with God’s goodness this year, during this great Christmas season. Open your mind and spirit to the call of Jesus, and let Him warm your inner being with His very presence and bring light to the dark places.
Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
