BAH HUMBUG


Thoughts:

What is your life like this Christmas season? Are you in turmoil, or feel unloved? Have you perhaps gotten dumped by the 'love of your life', or a friend that perhaps you thought might become the 'love' of your life? Life can be terrible at times. But, when things like this happen right at Christmas, the heart hurts more than ever. You feel very rejected, perhaps a little unloveable.

Satan is out there, ready to put a kink in your life. He doesn't care how he does it. He will even use the 'love of your life' to try and get you in his clutches! He pushes and pulls, and tugs, until you feel so bad, you just decide 'what the heck? Nobody cares, so why should I." But, this is where you are absolutely wrong!!

There is someone who cares deeply. He is Christ Jesus. He came to give you life, and give it more abundantly. And, this season, more than any other, is the one in which love means so much to each of us. The Lord knows how much we, as humans, want to be approved and to be loved. He is there every moment to provide a love for you that will not quit, no matter how much you feel unloved. He wants you to know that you are indeed loved, even when you feel unloveable, or feel that nobody cares. He will listen to you, and provide the closeness that you want from an individual. He can give you peace in your life that nobody else can, no matter how much they love you. When God is in control of your life, then love will find a way. You will feel like a new person. He will never deceive you as people do. When He says something, He means it.

So, if you have a 'humbug' in your life this Christmas season, drop the humbug with the Lord, and let Him share His love with you. Life will never be the same.

God's Thoughts:

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Our Cup:

Heavenly Father, this is a season that affects people differently. The enemy is out to get those that are weak, unsure, or without love. Reach out and touch those lives with your love this season, and use each of us to show these people the love you have given us. We give you thanks and praise. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.


BELIEVE, LIVE JOYFULLY, BREATHE DEEPLY, BE HOPEFUL, LAUGH!!!
