Wishing you a Merry Christmas filled with peace, love, & God's goodness!!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. -Isaiah 9:6 NIV

Through The Eyes Of A Child

 
One of the greatest honors I have is being a Titi. I love my nieces & nephews (they are my babies!). During their birthdays & Christmas time I love to spoil them; there’s something about seeing & experiencing these events through the eyes of a child.

This got me to thinking on how life & our experiences can change us so much; not that these shouldn’t have an impact on us, but it changes a lot of what we believed as children. For instance, when a child asks a parent (or Titi) for something, the child believes that he/she will receive it no matter what. There’s no doubt about it. Somewhere along the way, we lost this same belief in our prayers with God. Yes, we may believe, but do we believe fully? Do we have doubt? Or can we go back to how we were as children when we asked our parents for something, knowing that we would receive it? Even during the most difficult times, I remember my parents making sure we had a good Christmas & presents under the tree. I never thought that Christmas wouldn’t “happen” for my siblings & I.

I’m blessed for my babies & the lessons they teach me without even knowing it. I don’t like that time continues to fly by with them, but I’m enjoying every moment.

May we learn to take a moment to view life through the eyes of a child; knowing that God is working without reservation.

“Through the eyes of a child all things are possible.” -Unknown

Until next time.

Encouragement


I received the following quote and scripture in an email the other day:

“New day, new hopes, new life!!”

“Each day brings new life, new strength, new dreams and new hope. May you find courage, confidence and hope to reach out for your dreams.” -Lailah Gifty Akita

Lamentations 3:21-25 (NLT)... Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in Him!” The Lord is good to those who depend on Him, to those who search for Him.

It came right on time as there have been a lot of things on my plate lately; some of these things have caused me to feel a little discouraged. Many of us have felt like we’re working & working towards something, while at the same time feeling as if nothing is happening. These are the times when our faith is tested, but we need to refocus on God, the faith that we have, & get into His Word.

No matter what you’re facing, be encouraged & refocus on God---not the circumstances or situations you’re facing. God already has everything worked out.

Until next time.

Blessings,
