What do you want for christmas this year? After reading this you may want to add something to your list.
Received information from the book:
Wise Men Still seek Him Today
One of the perennial questions asked at Christmas is, "What do you want for Christmas?" What is on your Christmas list this year? You may have asked for jewelry, clothing, money, a trip, books, CD's, DVD's..... Did you include time with your friends, the ability to give to those in need, increased love for God? What is your deepest heart's desire for Christmas this year? If you could ask God for anything, anything at all what would you ask......? Make sure that you add that secret heart-treasure to your list.
I encourage to REALLY ask yourself this question. Maybe even ask someone else, but include the other part of this message as well.
I almost did not type what you see below this paragraph. For I do not want you to read it and think anything special about me. Rather think and pray, see God through my words. I am no one, He is everything. I am just a sinner, trying to try my best each day.
These verses below changed my life this year. God turned my life into something more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed...all because I asked God for all the things I wanted, and yet He gave me much more! It did not happen overnight. It took a little over a year. At times I was confused. Other times I was impatient. There were times when I was so sad, not knowing what to do, or how to make it work. Each month turning it over to God, until it no longer was a thought, it became instead a buried belief within my heart. My life you see... I was asking God to change it in many ways. I knew in my heart God would give me all the things I asked for. It happened slowly. For a long time nothing "seemed" to happen at all. It happened in God's time.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask Me whatever you wish, and it will be given to you.
My father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. Just as My father loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in my love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My father's commandments. "These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.
