Truth On Thursdays - If You Look For Me At Christmas

I'm changing my usual Thursday posting today from Trivia On Thursdays to Truth On Thursdays.


If you look for Me at Christmas
You won't need a special star.
I'm no longer just in Bethlehem,
I'm right there where you are.

You may not be aware of Me
Amid the celebrations.
You'll have to look beyond the stores
And all the decorations.

But if you take a moment
From your list of things to do,
And listen to your heart, you'll find
I'm waiting there for you.

You're the one I want to be with,
You're the reason why I came.
And you'll find Me in the stillness
As I'm whispering your name.

Love, Jesus

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders.  And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6


He was born in an obscure village. 
He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. 
He then became an itinerant preacher. 
He never held an office. 
He never had a family or owned a house. 
He didn't go to college. 
He had no credentials but Himself. 
He was only thirty-three when the public turned against Him. 
His friends ran away. 
He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. 
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves. 
While He was dying, His executioners gambled for His clothing, the only property He had on earth. 
He was laid to rest in a borrowed grave. 
Twenty centuries have come and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race.
All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned have not affected the life of man on this earth as much as that One Solitary Life.
