1 Samuel 12:16 New International Version (NIV)
16 “Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!
I was shopping yesterday when my family and I heard my granddaughter Brokenly say, "Grammie look at this". I stopped immediately and turned around. I saw something on the shelf I missed by walking by. She was right, it was what I was looking for. My point to this story is sometimes we need to listen to someone else and just stop. Stop the craziness of our own thoughts or actions to listen to God. It is in the silence that we can grow into a better a person. Giving our all to God and allowing him to mold us daily.
Today is Christmas Sunday in Churches. People who will go expecting a Christmas message and Christmas songs. Many people will go broken to church today. Nobody can see inside of you but God. He has a new day here and ready to hear the cry of your heart too. Don't stop believing and reaching out to others. For those who stay home today, My thoughts and prayers are with you too. I hope you feel his presence right inside your home and know that I care.
Holding onto the season of Jesus and giving thanks for his life. It leads to way to Christmas morning in two days. Families will come together and share good times and even hard times. Missing loved ones who entered Heaven. Maybe dealing with that grouchy loved one, but think about this, one day that grouchy loved one might be gone. What if you were the one to reach out to them and they changed? My mom has been grouchy on Christmas day for years. Now she rest in Heaven and I do miss here. Moments are gone and new beginnings happen.
We must find happiness in the Christmas Season of the birth of Jesus. He remains the same and still able to help you this day. STAND STILL and see the miracle working power of God. Things can change if we don't give up praying. Prayer works and I know this too well. I am grateful for my life, my family and friends. I am grateful for God who gave me forgiveness of my own sins and open my mind up to his ways. I have grown in life in those stand still moments. Behind the scenes of your life is a miracle working and God will answer in his timing. Free choice of each of us gets in the way at times, but God is still God.
STAND STILL ~
KNOW THAT I AM GOD
God, I don't know what to really say today but pray. I know that Christmas brings good thoughts and hard thoughts. I know that broken people will walk into churches everywhere and hear a message. Let that message be one of hope, love and compassion. New beginnings happen when you grab the heart of your people and I know this. I pray that people can forgive and forget somethings. I pray that people find strength in knowing you are God and working behind the scenes of life. Nobody knows our hearts like you God and able to restore, complete and change. I pray for people to receive miracles this day in heath, finances, relationship and whatever they need. Help us to be more like you and sharing the good news of Jesus. Help the broken hearted over loosing loved ones and the missing link in their lives. Help families to draw together and not apart. AMEN
STAND STILL ~
KNOW THAT I AM GOD
