Jesus, the Babe of God- His Son and our Savior and Lord! A Prayer of Salvation! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to YOU!

Merry Christmas 2015 and Happy New Year for 2016- 
With God, ALL things are possible!
Greetings in our Lord and Savior's Name,
Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
May you find Him close to your heart and mind, having Him as your personal Savior and the Lord of your life.
There is a ***Salvation Prayer toward the end of today's posting~~~please pray it or say in your own words to God that you believe in Jesus and want God in your life forever.  Ask the Lord to forgive your sins and mistakes- He most certainly will!  This may be your first time, or it may be a re-commitment...  His love for you is fathomless, never-ending, and magnificent- more than anyone has ever loved you, more than all people in your life, in total, are capable of loving you!
Here are a few of my poems about God~~~the Father, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, three Persons, yet One Sovereign God Who made you and me and all the heavens and earth.  Yet, God is also Spirit.

Long Memories and Gratitude
Oh, Lord, keep our memories long
With plentiful gratitude
For what you have done.
May we not be as
We were from Egypt
To the Promised Land:
Longing for meat, instead of Your manna
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:6
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sweet little Dove
From heaven above:
Come down, from on high,
To prove Yourself King
By and by.
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Good News of Jesus Christ
Is that He lives today among us,
His believers,
And He reigns o’er the entire world
That none of us should perish.
The Holy Spirit works and hovers
To move us to Christ.
So come, come now
To Lord Jesus
Your Savior.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
God usually speaks
I have found-
In a quiet voice.
You will hear
Him clearly, softly.
It is definitely
There.
Make no mistake.
Avoid the oft
Human response
Of overlooking,
Procrastinating,
Going on.
Have you noticed?
How God seems
To speak quietly
When guiding,
Then sometimes
Comes deeply
Through action
To get our attention?
However He leads and
Speaks to you,
We should definitely
Listen, friends!
He is our Creator.
He made the world and
All that is in it.
Most importantly,
You and me
A note: God speaks to us in a myriad of ways!!  He is all-capable.  One of the best pieces of advice ever given me was by a Christian friend, Joni Ames; don't put God in a box.  She was right- He cannot be put in a box!***   The Lord spoke to me one day a few years ago in a very crowded and loud foyer at church while I was talking to a married couple, who are friends of mine.  God's Voice and helpful directive in a sentence was unmistakable. 
My point: God speaks to us, not only in quietness, but in so many ways!  He can and does break through to us!!  Ask Him to help you in your belief and your walk. Even if you are an unbeliever as of now, ASK HIM to help you to believe!  He will!! 
Many true believers, disciples of Christ, find that spending time in The Holy Bible (the Bible) with God in His Word, in prayer and listening, is a great way to learn about our Lord: the Trinity, Who is the One, True God.  We show El Olam, the Everlasting God, that we love Him enough to take some dedicated moments with Him~ alone~ each day- and to hear His Voice for guidance.  
The Lord Almighty always refreshes us, never drains us or makes our time feel like work/toil.

In His Presence


Won’t we be softened

By being in the presence

Of our Lord?

Won’t we be purer
When we sit at His feet?
In His shining countenance,
With loving, outreached arms
For us,
In the fragrance of His Home-
Oh, it will surely be sweeter
Than any earthly fruit could bear

Our clear faces will reflect
Precious Jesus’ smile,
And when we look back at Him,
He will see the love
We were meant to have for Him
In the beginning.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I love the way
Everything just stops
For a little while
At Christmas…
All of the craziness
Ceases,
And we bow down
To worship
Our Lord and King, Jesus.
It’s so soundlessly
Beautiful,
As we all stop
To stare
At the newborn Savior
Of heaven and earth.

***A Salvation Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father,
I know I have fallen short many times and been less than You would have me to be.  Please forgive me of my shortcomings and errors; I want to do better and to rely on you as my Lord and Savior, Jesus.  I believe You are the Son of God and that You came to earth to save us- me.  Thank You for loving me so much!  I want You as the Lord of my new Life.  I know I can talk with You, Jesus, at any time, and You are right here with me.  You are my true Friend- You lay down Your Life for me!!  Thanks for sending the Holy Spirit to comfort, guide, and counsel me.
In Jesus' Name I pray,
Amen- so be it.

  Almighty God richly blesses you in Christ.
