Merry Christmas, dear ones! I can only hope, and also pray that Jesus will direct and keep you in His care. I’m looking to a Christmas a thousand years from today, when He will bring us all together. I think that we’ll all kick back, and we will try to remember Christmas, 2014. We will most likely say, “But that was so long ago, it feels like a dream, I’m not sure now…”
Like me, I trust your deepest hopes are pinned on an incredible grace. The gifts that are for me, under the tree are fabulous. But we have been given a gift– of gifts. It is something that ‘rocks our world’. It’s called ‘eternal life’. It has been given to us freely, and without any stipulations. We’ve been ‘cut-loose’ from the tangled mass of sin. We are now very much free.
I know I need to learn to live like a free man. My mental illness often trips me up. I’m saddened by my weaknesses. But by extending myself and straining, I can just touch this grace, I pull it in and take and make it as my own. Jesus has freed me, and I want to walk in truth, with Him, and with you.
Jesus is truly a “rose in the snow.” He has come to this hostile environment, and is precious and beautiful in the eyes of the faithful. I pray that you find Him flourishing in your heart.
Love to you from Brokenbelievers!
