The Bible tells us that after Jesus was born and the shepherds had visited, Mary took time to consider all that had happened, meditating on it quietly and deeply.
This week I’m going to take a lesson from Mary. It is going to be a time of quiet meditation for me.
A time to reflect on this year and to pray. Asking God for direction for the coming year. A time to be quiet before the Lord and seek His face.
There have been many wonderful, joyful experiences this year but there have also been many hard, difficult lessons to learn as well.
thank You for getting us through to the end
another month has come and gone
Your faithfulness to us has remained strong.
Let us lift up our voices in song
praising Your name all the day long.
For the gifts of Your grace, mercy and love
showered down from Your throne above.
In joyful thanksgiving we worship and sing
glory, honor and majesty to Your great name.
There’s so many things to be thankful for
no matter the circumstance we have endured.
Jesus, Emmanuel, God come in flesh
we humbly thank You for Your priceless gift
born of a virgin, a babe grown to die
may we remember Your love for us at this Christmastime.
