we celebrate the coming of Messiah,
It’s shadow was always there with Him.
During this time of hustle and bustle and celebrating
may we always remember the gift of His coming
and the even greater gift He gave at the cross.
May we think often on how well we are living out
our thankfulness and appreciation
of that tremendous gift.
May we long for His return
with a focus on His kingdom work
while we are waiting.
May our hearts focus on
and doing all we do
out of that love for Him,
for no other motivation
is truly pure.
Change us and mold us into what
You want us to be.
Bring us to the end
when Messiah returns
as the Conquering King of kings.
May Sar Shalom,
the Prince of Peace,
reign always in our hearts.
May we live and move and have our being
only in You.
May the Ruach/Spirit of Messiah
make Himself known to you
in a fresh and new way
during this time of year.
