There’s Room Here

The Watered Soul: There’s Room Here

There’s Room Here

natvity

 

The Christmas season is a time filled with many things.

Tables spread with decadent treats.

Christmas trees brimming with presents.

Calendars full of activities.

Homes filled with family and friends. 

Radio stations filled with Christmas tunes.

Stores full of shoppers looking for the perfect item.

Lists full of things to do.

With so much activity it can be easy to allow our lives to become so full that we squeeze out the very reason for the season.

 

12 Make sure that when you eat and are satisfied, build pleasant houses and settle in, 13 see your herds and flocks flourish and more and more money come in, watch your standard of living going up and up - 14make sure you don't become so full of yourself and your things that you forget God, your God, the God who delivered you from Egyptian slavery; Deuteronomy 8:12-14 (The Message)

 

May We Never Forget Him!

 

Wanda

Wanda, what a perfect verse for this moment. I just hosted a huge party at my house last night and had a great time. But in all the preparations, it is easy to allow ourselves to lose focus. I don't want to forget the WHO of Christmas!

It's so easy to lose sight of the true meaning for our celebration at this time of the year. I spent Sunday morning listening to a room full of 6th grade girls talk about the real meaning of Christmas. It was amazing how those "babies" were able to put everything in right perspective. May we truly never forget Him. Thank you for the reminder, Wanda!

Wanda - A wonderful, timely reminder. I posted a poem today on my blog - along the same lines! (God speaks to so many of us at the same time, doesn't
He?!)

We must never forget God - never, ever - because He never forgets us - never, ever!

GOD BLESS

Hi Wanda -

Thank you for this precious reminder of the truth that our Lord is above all.

When we draw nigh to GOD, He draws nigh to us. And He promises to never fail us or forsake us. Indeed, He keeps His promises.
Praise His holy awesome name.
