Presence (meet the King who gives us back our lives)
Presents (offer our greatest treasures to Him)
Pre-sense (listen to His warnings so we are safe in our faith)
When you get a little older and roles change a bit, Christmas can look completely different. How, different then, might Christmas look from the perspective of the angels? What insights might they give us to the birth of Christ and what it means to the world? Get a glimpse of what Christmas looks like "Through Angel Eyes."
God paid attention to every detail when He fulfill His promise to send a Savior. If He kept this big promise, know that He will keep all of His promises - to give us courage, to not let us fall, to guide us and to love us. Now and in eternity.
When Jesus was born, people were living ordinary, everyday lives. Except for Mary, Joseph and a few shepherds, no one else knew that the Savior had been born! When God comes into our everyday lives it doesn't look spectacular - it looks like love, it looks like resurrected lives, it looks like our forever, but also our today.
In the hard moments.... when it feels like too much....
...that's when love does it's best work. You can cast it all to God, because He has promised you "Love."
When you feel lost, you can move forward knowing that God promised "To Guide Me."
When the path of life is shaky or there's danger around you....
...remind yourself, I can look to the One who has promised me "Faith: That You Won't Let Me Fall."
Our Big God doesn't just want us to trust Him with the big things. We can have faith that our Big God will come through in the everyday little things too!
When you're afraid to move forward....
or don't know what to do....
...there's God, who has promised to give you "Courage."
There is so much that the world is throwing at us. But in the face of it all, God, "You promised to give me courage!"
Are there times in your life where you are not thankful? Maybe we all need a change in perspective!
I am thankful for YOU!
Ever feel like you're nobody, because you listen to the devil, the world or even what goes on in your own head? God's grace says you are His child, the empty tomb confirms His love for you! You ARE somebody!
When you look at your life, it looks average. Jesus is IN the average - look for Him. When life doesn't make sense - look for Jesus there. And one day, we will see Jesus in all His glory - for eternity!
It's hard, when you've lost something or someone important.
But Jesus has made it so you can live with "Hope Restored."
You may fall... but God can restore!
Hard to believe... and that's exactly the point! God has done and continues to do reality-rocking work. He's given us "Crazy Faith."
It's time to break out of prison... the prison of fear!
Opportunity is in front of you. What's your response? God can transform you and the world whether you're "Ready Or Not."
From the beginning, God has always wanted our hearts!
A wall or a bridge. Everything changes based on the "If." Philemon 8-11 reminds us how we get to have a truly counter-cultural view of people and ability to restore relationships because of Jesus.
An epic story of forgiveness, love and reunion. God is still working through us today for the good of His Kingdom and love for one another!
Now, restored by Your gift of faith, lead us to be so much more than the world tells us, or than we often tell ourselves. Make us warrior champions who, with Your authority, speak Your powerful truth to those who need it.
Loneliness is real. But so is the power of "Friending!"
People are feeling more disconnected than ever before. Thankfully, while you may sometimes feel lonely, you're never alone!
God asks us to speak His truth with a loving and compassionate heart, much like our Savior did. His truth gives us life, it offers meaning and purpose to our lives and is meant to be shared with others.
This one truth can change the way you see everything in your life! Dig into 1 Chronicles 4:10 to see how God created us to thrive and continues to work that we might have real, full, life!
Pain - physical, emotional or spiritual - is a consequence of sin. Looking to Jesus and His cross, we have hope! Because of Jesus, we now have direct access to bring our pain to our heavenly Father, trusting that He will work these things for our good.
God designed us - recreated us through the gift of faith - to be in a helpful relationship with others, to make a difference in their lives. Not for fame or glory, but to show the love of Christ.
Reminder: You are truly amazing! God created you with a purpose for a purpose!
