A Season For Miracles

What a perfect time for miracles! What a perfect time for setting aside ill-will and giving the gift of forgiveness! What a perfect time to give God some praise for all that He has done! What a perfect time to rejoice in the Lord for His continued goodness and mercy! Yes; what a perfect time!

Oh yes; there is so much that we can find to complain about. There is so much that we can say that has not gone right. But there is also so much to be thankful for. I believe that it is much easier to be negative and to see the negative, because we live in a negative world.

However, we can see pass the negativity and see the goodness that is around us. To see the goodness that still exists in the hearts of man. Oh, if we would only see through the eyes of God, then perhaps we would be able to rejoice more, and do more for those around us.

Merry Christmas my dear friends and family! Merry Christmas! I pray that this is a season of abundant miracles for you and yours. I have been hearing some awesome testimonies this season, and I expect to hear many more!

It is in the small things that we do each and every day that we see miracles. Itís in the smile you give. Itís in the phone call you make. Itís in the sharing of a meal, or offering to help someone with some errands or chores. Itís in the hugs and embraces that we give. Itís in the moments that we listen and not just speak. Itís in the gestures that we offer, whether it is received or not. Sometimes, it really is the thought that counts.

I find that when I am rejoicing in God, I donít recognize the negative situations or impossibilities as often. I only see what is possible and what I can possibly to do to make the situation turn around. I see the miracles all around me.

You see, my dear friends, when we rejoice in the lord, it not only charges our heart and soul, it charges the atmosphere around us. We will find ourselves with new sight and revelation, and a determination to go one more day. We will find ourselves believing in miracles again! And what a perfect time to start believing again!

When I rejoice in the Lord, it puts me in a state of unselfishness. Because it is then that I forget about myself, and any problem that I thought I had, and remember that God said that He has taken care of everything that I have presented to Him and believe Him for, and now my eyes and heart are open to those around me and the way in which God is moving.

My joy in the Lord increases even the more when I can help someone else in their time of need. My joy is filled when I allow God to use me as He designed; to be His hands and feet upon this earth.

I rejoice in the Lord today, knowing that He has made a way. He has made a way for each and every one of us, and all we have to do is follow His lead. I pray that this season will be filled with great miracles for many people. I pray that prayers are answered, that circumstances are changed for the better. I pray that the light of the Lord is shone in the darkest of placesómanís heart.

May your joy be filled this day, and your heart filled with the grace and presence of God. If you do not know the Lord, I pray that you would make the decision to give your heart as a gift to the Lord today. Exchange your sorrows for a heart of joy and peace. Allow the precious Gift of this season, become the ultimate Gift in your life. Ask of Him for forgiveness; repent of your sins, and receive this precious Gift of Christ.
