Wishing a Joy-FILLED Christmas

Post by Tatanka » Sat Dec 24, 2016 7:14 pm

I wish you all a joy-FILLED Christmas. I've been so blessed, recently in my second reading of the 19th century booklet by Andrew Murray, titled "Let Us Draw Nigh, The Way to a Life Abiding Continually in the Secret of GOD's Presence, as meditations on Heb. 10:19-25.

I pray for us all, the blessings, our Heavenly FATHER has in mind, He wishes we all could be open to receive as special joy-FILLED blessings this Christmas, and growing into the new year.

May we all discover what Jesus Christ Himself said was that "one thing needed" (Lk. 10:42), and obtain the peace He promised.

The FATHER's richest and more precious intimate blessings to you and all those dear to you, is my prayer for you all.

Clinging to the ROCK,
Jess

Great post, Jess.

Thank you for thinking of us all here at CPS. God Bless you and may His peace abound in your heart,

Well said, Jess.

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about." So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
Merry Christmas to all.

Merry Christmas! ... even though this is misfiled in the general pipes and tobaccos forum rather than fellowship.

I'm feeling a strange emotion of closeness.....friendship......unseen support.....and there has to be love for you all. I do wish you all a JOY - FILLED CHRISTMAS. I pray some personally "felt" blessing that warms your spirit, like a little candle being lighted at the bottom of your heart, that slowly grows and sends a "smiling warmth" into every corner of your consciousness! I pray you will KNOW that "THAT" is GOD.

If you feel only coldness and alone-ness, I pray you will read Psalm 139. Read it slowly, and chew on each verse and each phrase and THINK of the powerful Creator, Jehovah GOD, and the words you are reading, are His thoughts, put into print....for you! All of you! Me included. I sure need it this Christmas myself.

Oh Be blessed fellow pipe-puffers! This season is all about GOD being WITH US! Immanual !
Soli Deo Gloria!
