“If you come face to face with God right now what would be the first thing you would say to Him?”
I was caught off guard when someone asked me this question. Honestly, I wouldn’t know what to say. If I come face to face with God right now, I’d probably look like a deer caught in the headlights while trying to recall what my life was worth.
As we celebrate the birth of our Lord, we seem to be extra happy, caring, and loving to everyone around us. We seem to enjoy the company of our family and friends. We feast on good food, and appreciate all the laughs while recalling memories of the past year. We appear joyful, kind, and our hearts seem to be especially healthy. We’re more thankful, more forgiving, and more prayerful. We act as though our struggles never happened and that the birth of our Lord is enough to contain all the problems of the world.
Now wouldn’t it be great if we are all like this whole year-round?
Believe it or not, but the birth of our Lord is enough to contain all the problems of the world. We carry the anxieties of our lives all year-round wishing for a miracle to happen. We tend to overlook that a miracle did happen 2000 years ago. A King was born on a mere stable! Jesus will always be the reason for the season. Jesus is the reason to always be thankful, not just on Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, or on our birthdays. God loves you. If He didn’t love you so much He wouldn’t have sent His son! Always remember that we are very blessed and loved, no matter what circumstance we are in.
If I can ask God one thing, just one thing, I would ask, “How have I done?” And hopefully when that time comes, the Lord will say to me, “You have done good, child!”
Merry Christmas and God bless all of you!
