Sunday Reflection #9 "THAT WONDERFUL DAY"

"Today is the day to make the moves that will replace tomorrow and prepare the future"

Hello there my people! How are you? I hope that all is well and everyone is enjoying the holiday season and all that it has to offer. Merry Christmas! Take time to thank God for the birth of Jesus Christ, who alone died that we may live free and without worry of the compliance to mans law and knowing that through him we may achieve eternal life. God is so great to us and we must give him thanks! Afterwards be sure that you let your family know how much you love them, spend time with friends and just remain positive; bring closure to the year in style.

It's so amazing how the enemy (satan) will do all that he can to distract us from reaching our destinations, completing our tasks and accomplishing our goals. He will use our family, the people around us and sometimes even ourselves to diliberetly put a stop to the things that we know we need to do in life. As I was trying to go to church this morning, my car was acting up...could have lost my life but I spoke against everything that he thought he would have control over.

See what a lot of us Christians forget, is that we have dominion and administrative right over this land that we call earth. When in the world do we plan to live that way? Every desire of your heart, God knows...every temptation of the mind, satan will attack. Remember satan's dutie is to steal, kill and destroy. On this day we were given life in the most darkest of times. Will we allow the purpose of this occassion to die? We got some serious evaluating to do.

As I listened to the pastor preach today, he placed major emphasis on the fact that God made no mistake when he orchestrated how he would make hisself evident on the earth. He did it the best way that it could be making himself to be human, just the same as us. But examine how he came, there wasn't any glamour and fame in his entry, but solemness and humility. To be born of a women, who at the time had little importance in the world, was one thing...but to be born in a barn, in one of the worlds poorest areas means the most.

As humans we get so caught up in material things that we forget the true riches of the world. Do you have someone that you can talk to any day about anything? Are you sheltered and fed? Is there something in life that you enjoy, that will pull you away from all the other stresses of the world? If you answered yes to any of these, you are more than blessed. Remember that love is the richest of all things and to give that is the greatest gift of them all.

I am so greatful that I have life and wonderful people to share it with. Do great things because you have been given the ability. Help others because that is the right thing to do and of course because the person who we celebrate today helped us in ways that none of us could probably ever even imagine. The sound of kids opening presens in amazement, families laughin at the dinner table and of course the great games that will be on are all signs that God loves us. He gives us the things that make us smile and remain positive. Use this as an anchor as you battle the trials and tribulations of life. God loves you, so all is well.

Don't be afraid to take risks, and please don't be afraid to believe that anything is possible. Baby Jesus proved that to us. I love you all! Again, Merry CHRISTmas!!! If you go somewhere, speak to someone you don't know! Peace...
