I salute those devoted believers who remain unshaken by the tremors of upset and upheaval. They’re people whose thankful hearts bring smiles amid the shadows. Even while navigating stormy waters, they live in a light that no darkness can diminish.
Even though a small percentage of the Christian community takes issue with Santa, I find it hard to be threatened by him. I also find it impossible to believe that either God, the Father, or Christ, the Son, is likely to be eclipsed by the silhouette of Santa’s sleigh rising in the Christmas sky.
In the seasonal transitions of our lives, God’s pruning process may be painful, even traumatic, but He promises that having gone through it, we will bear much fruit.
God sends seasons by way of plans He has for us, and those plans are His promise to us—for new life, new increase and new abounding in our lives today.
The unqualified invitation of God's will and way into a crisis guarantees your ability to stand in faith, knowing that the answer you have is His. Such prayer releases God’s maximum redemptive purposes, and such living releases an ever deepening conformity to the Person and power of Jesus in our life.
