“The Hope of the World

     Christmas begins in God’s heart,

          It’s complete when it reaches the heart of man

               with love and understanding.

 

Morning Moment:
How do you stop yourself from feeling helpless in uncertain times? One way a family member of mine stopped getting seasick when I was on board a navy ship for the first time. A senior naval officer had advised Chris, “Don’t look at the waves around you. Look at the horizon far away. Look at that stable, stationary line and you will feel better.” When I fixed my eyes on that unshakable, unwavering line, even though the ship bobbed up and down in the rough sea, I did not feel so seasick anymore.

Don’t look at the waves of circumstances happening all around you, instead, look at the unshakable Word of God. Your heart will stabilize and you will see your God supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!

Juggling Holidays Events

Juggling multiple Thanksgiving invites can be stressful. Do your parents still have expectations for you on holidays like Turkey Day as an adult?

My brother “unofficially” expects our whole family to be together, and he applies pressure (gently) by hosting the meal. And invites Everyone to His place!

Are there any unwritten rules that feel more like family politics?

For many, a good chunk of Thanksgiving Day is spent in the car going from one family meal to the next.

No Christmas Not Yet, But This is Good!

Well, I don’t know if this is the most powerful Christmas story ever, but it’s definitely one of the most watched.

The video has garnered close to 40 million views on YouTube alone..
