Good Day, Beautiful People.
“Many times the deepest disappointments yield the most beautiful fruit in our lives.
In the later years of life, George lost all his money, his health faded, his right side became paralyzed and his creditors were threatening him with imprisonment for not paying his debts. He had no place to go, no one to really help him, but God. Placing all his trust in God alone, George decided to go into seclusion and spend time in meditation and prayer. Out of this time alone with God he was changed, His eyes opened and he saw such glory. Out of his difficulty he composed perhaps one of the greatest works of music ever…THE MESSIAH. His name – George Frederick Handel.
Don’t give up, your music will return and your life will come into that perfect place God has for you. What God does in secret will bless many openly.” – Passion Translation sharing.
Christmas is drawing near. We are all so busy with so many festival activities and parties around this time of the year. I hope in our busyness, we don’t forget the real meaning and Spirit of Christmas.
Every year, I host a business & working sisters thanksgiving and Christmas party. I will encourage them to share something they are thankful for the year.
Like my pastor claimed in the beginning of 2015 “You crown the year with Your goodness.” –Ps 65:11.
Regardless 2015 is your peak or pit, you’re breathing and moving you have something to be thankful for. Be like the one out of ten that Jesus healed, came back and thank Him! Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” – Lk17:17-19 Let’s us give honour and appreciation when honour is due. “Do you owe respect? Then give it. Do you owe honour? Then show it.”- Rom13:7
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Ps100:4
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1Chron16:34
Some of the sisters are thankful for a good year. Others are thankful that they are still here and standing even though it is a challenging & dramatic year! We are all grateful that God is with us in the pit and peak! There are plenty of laughter and a few teary eyes. This year each one receive a scented candle. The symbolic reason of a candlelight is a reminder they are the light in the world of darkness. So remember to shine for Jesus.
“I hear His whisper… “VICTORY!”
You are going to make it. You will arise in victory, no matter how it may look to you at this moment. Is it not true that every impossibility yields to My power? All I am will be placed between you and your enemies. You will arise as the mighty one that I have created you to be! Nothing will be able to overcome you, for faith will grow and your love will intensify toward Me.
Never doubt My power, My grace, My surprising breakthrough on your behalf. Before this week is over you will see My glory shine through the clouds of darkness. You will see your enemies shrink back before you as you move out with My Name and My victory. Watch what I will do before this year is over. Your will jump out into 2016 with the songs of victory!” – Passion Translation
