Merry Christmas!!! | Stay Focused On Christ Each Day

This is a busy week for many, and I know it can be hard on many, too. 2020, in particular, has caused heartache for a lot of reasons, including being separated from those we want to be with.

Whatever your plans are this Christmas, even if you do not celebrate Christmas, dear Christian, every single day we are to rejoice for our Savior. Find reasons throughout each day to be thankful, and never forget the “small” stuff that tends to cross our minds only when they are broken or taken away.

  • A roof over our heads
  • Clean clothes (ability to wash and dry clothes)
  • Daily food
  • Wi-fi to connect to others and share the Gospel
  • A body that can (possibly) taste, smell, touch, move, hear, see (and a body that might sometimes be pain free, be grateful for those moments.)
  • Friends to encourage and friends that encourage
  • Family
  • Knowing how to read and write
  • … being able to receive the mercy and grace from our Lord, Jesus Christ

If we do not have Jesus, then none of this matters. We can have all of the blessings in the world, and be just as lost as ever. We can appear to be a “good person” and be on our way to the gates of Hell. Remember Him, dear friends. Walk with Him. Pray. Worship the Lord.

I will be taking a short break next week from Inside Cup, and I’ll return in January. On Christmas Day, I will have a poem on being unworthy and what it meant for Christ to come down to the earth as a babe. There were 2 posts this Christmas season I was not able to finish writing, they required a lot more research and time. I hope to have them ready in January. 🙂

What are your plans this Christmas?

Monthly Scripture To Ponder/Memorize From Daniel 9 – (NKJ) Daniel 9:18, “O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations, and the city which is called by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies.

Luke 11_39-40, _...so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy–full of greed and wickedness. Fools! Didn’t God make the inside as well as the outside_
