It Isn’t the 12 days of Christmas, It Is the 5 Days FULL of Christmas!
Today was Christmas with my children and my future-daughter-in-love, and my husband. We have it early because of work schedules conflicting, going to other family members homes and by the time it is all said and done Christmas, along with cooking, lasts 5 days! They are days full of movies, eating, cooking, laughing, eating, gift exchanging, eating, and more eating!
Today was Christmas at our house! My daughter-in-love loves animals! She has rescued dogs and kittens. Her heart is full of love for animals and people! She loves to get to the heart of things and make people closer, she loves to rescue! She just has a huge heart of love to give! Gracie is my chihuahua and my daughter-in-love is just naturally attracted to her.
It is the strangest thing, she goes to Gracie to hold her and Gracie would jump Mount Everest to get away from her! It is bothersome and hurtful to her because she wants to be close to her. Gracie is different! She has never been completely normal. She adores me, but I got her when she was older and she wasn’t socialized.
Today, as my daughter-in-love reached out to try to bond her with her, yet again, Gracie shied away. Even when she tries to give her a treat she will run from her! My daughter-in-love, nor the rest of us, can figure it out. As I watched my heart broke for my daughter-in-love. She desires so deeply to have relationship with Gracie, but Gracie just pushes away and cries forcing her to put her down.
That is how many do with God. As the Holy Spirit woos them, they push God away. Everything God has for us is good and an abundant supply of nothing but blessings and love, yet we force our own way, which is imperfect and filled with flaws, and in so doing push God and what He has away.
People always ask where God is when tragedy strikes. He is there. Some have embraced Him and peace comes. Others have pushed Him away, wanting to maintain control of their lives and when something happens that is beyond their control, they blame God, become angry and bitter with Him when He has been there all the time! You see, dear reader, you are truly never in control anyway! Only by taking God’s Word and the authority of the name of Jesus, can you have the protection and joy of knowing you are secure in His hands.
If you do not know Jesus as your Saviour this is a good time to receive Him! What a better time than Christmas! Start your new year with a new destiny, not just a fate.
See you soon, precious reader! May the abundant blessings of God be yours now and forever!!
