Day 25: Good Friday



Once Upon A Time

IT HAPPENED

to you & me & everyone else.

And you & me & everyone else

had no power to make IT HAPPEN.

Because no one wishes themselves into existence.

A PURPOSEFUL GOD PURPOSED you into existence.

Think about that.

Close your eyes. And let it sink in.

GOD PURPOSELY CREATED YOU

as no one knits by accident.

"For YOU created my inmost being; YOU knit me together in my mother's womb."*

Did you read that? Did you really read it?

Oh how I forget that I am

GOD'S CREATION

when I start to ride the woe is me train,

when I grow weary

when I want what I want when I want it

and don't get what I want when I want it.

And then GOD draws me closer to HIS HEART

and reminds me that HE PURPOSELY created me.

And when this simple TRUTH hits your heart

you become so connected to your CREATOR that you

THANK GOD through PRAISE~

"I praise YOU because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. YOUR eyes saw my unformed body" *(Psalm 139).

Make today your BIRTH DAY.

Close your eyes. And let IT sink in.

THE GOD WHO MATTERS SAYS YOU MATTER AND THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.

Could you imagine what the world would be like

if we all treated everyone

as

GOD'S CREATIONS

and stopped complicating things

and just stopped long enough to

embrace the TRUTH

that our FATHER IN HEAVEN

is the same FATHER for ALL.

And then when this great TRUTH is embraced

then everyone would embrace the

TRUTH

that

“For this is how GOD loved the world:

HE gave HIS one and only SON,

so that everyone who believes in HIM will not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

GOD gave JESUS

for ONE & FOR ALL

the moment

IT HAPPENED to JESUS

on that one SILENT NIGHT

when JESUS came dressed as a BABY.

A BABY.

A PRECIOUS BABY.

Just like how we came into this world,

but JESUS came to take us out of this world

to an ETERNITY

to a PERFECT WORLD

where we will ALL be PRAISING GOD

ALL the time.

So on this FRIDAY when

THANKSGIVING remains in your belly

and the CHRISTMAS shopping begins

make this

A GOOD FRIDAY

remembering the ONE

who hung on a CROSS

for ONE & for ALL

to give us ALL

our HAPPILY EVER ENDING.

PRAISE GOD today

as you remember your

ONCE UPON A TIME beginning

and

PRAISE JESUS

as you embrace your

HAPPILY EVER AFTER ending IN HIM.

Will you join me through

ADVENT

DECEMBER 1 -24

through our

DAILY ADVENT DEVOTIONAL SERIES

as we answer the question

"WHO IS THIS BABY"

so we will

embrace this CHRISTMAS SEASON

by embracing

THE BABY who is CHRISTMAS

Because

"A BABY CHANGES EVERYTHING"

(listen to the song below)
