I, too, like the comparison of a parents love to Gods love. My Dad has been gone 20 Christmases and I still miss him terribly, especially on Christmas Eve when he would be at my house. He probably knew me better than I thought he did…but how I wish I could call him up. Thankfully we can call on our Savior any time. Ahhh the love of a Father. Great writing Rebecca!!

How beautiful to have such a wonderful and special mirror of our Heavenly Father’s love wrapped up in the love of earthly parents!

Yes Sister, we must definitely learn to speak God’s words before ours. Great challenge

A challenge for each of us. Thanks for reading, Dominika!

Our worship is most definitely directed to God! He has done so much for us!!

Rebecca

Beautiful presentation of the Gospel through the Christmas story. Just what I needed to start this advent season.

Pray for big things this advent, that God will show you more about Himself in special ways!

I love worship music but I do love this time of year when we completely focus on the birth of Christ

Rebecca

It shifts our worship perspective, doesn’t it?! Enjoy the season as you look for deeper ways to encounter Him!

I always thing of Mary as the archetype of the first born again Christian, with Jesus indwelling her until He is birthed fully. May we be indwelt with Jesus until we become Christ-like.

What a precious thought!
Thanks for sharing, Alice!

I love this perspective!

Love what you shared about your mom. I lost my mom 14 years ago and for years I longed and truly thought (at times) the phone would ring and it would be here. She knew me better than anyone and loved me – wanted the best for me. I love how you tied that in to how God feels about us.

Poignant memories. Enjoy the memories this Christmas, Sasha, and may they remind you of the deeply intimate love of the Savior!

I love the idea that God knows us better than anyone else. I also enjoy music: playing it, listening to it and singing it! I feel like I can worship God the greatest when I am listening to music!

Rebecca

It really is an amazing tool He has given us to allow us to enter in to His presence in such intimacy!

Merry

I am always left in awe at the thought. The Creator of the universe loves and knows us – intimately – and longs for us to behold Him!

Yes, I want to focus on the beauty and majesty of Jesus this Christmas season. He is so awesome.

Rebecca

Isn’t it amazing to have a Savior so majestic?!

I love the Christmas season! This weekend we will be putting up the tree and turning the house into a celebration of Jesus’ birth! I love that as my children are getting older they have a better ability to understand the importance of Christmas beyond the get-togethers and presents.

Rebecca

I’m praying for you today as you intentionally invest in your kids, Melissa, using the opportunities of the season to show them the heart of God!

I love me some Jesus. I’m so super excited about the Christmas season.

Me too!

I ove worship music and especially Christmas music too. You are so right…it gets our attention focused on Him and off of ourselves.

“Multiply this by infinity and you’ll catch a glimpse of the heart of God.” I always love the Christmas season because Jesus came to set us free, and He did it all for love.

Rebecca

When I spend time to really think on this love, perspectives shift. Praise!

Ida Pahus

This is so great and filled with truth (aka. Scripture)! Agree with everything in this post-oh how much praise God deserves!

Rebecca
Admin

And how blessed we are that we can come and worship!

Hannah

I love music so as well! This also serves as a great reminder, that if music can have such an impact on us, then we must be careful of how much junk music we are taking in as well!

Rebecca
Admin

Completely agree, Hannah!

Merry
Admin

Preach, Hannah! Since having Littles, I have found that I am so much more intentional about what I listen to, read and watch. I didn’t comprehend how much that could affect us until I stopped to think about what the Word says about what enters our minds.

“His love for us is so passionate and so profound that He left His glorious position of royalty in heaven to begin life on earth in the same way that we do: as a single cell.” >>> Beautifully written! I need to dwell on this fact in worship! Hide it in my heart! Not just in Sunday morning worship, but in all worship; acts, tasks, words, thoughts!

Rebecca
Admin

Good encouragement for all of us, Katie!

What a beautiful reminder of the aspects of the Father’s love and also of the obedience of Christ in setting aside all he had to come for us. Thank for your writing!

Rebecca

His obedience is so incredible to me – indescribable love!
