New Year’s Eve

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!  Did anyone make a new year’s resolution?  I was challenged by a good friend to make a resolution that was more others centered.  I think it was great advice, and I’m going to take it.  I have made no resolution yet, but I plan to make one before the end of tomorrow.  I will post something when I decide.  I think sometimes it can be silly to make resolutions, especially if you plan on not being able to keep them .. however, I think it’s a good thing to acknowledge there are things about yourself that need to be changed , and then strive to make that change.

Am I Going To His College?

I know of a few who would probably like these videos to be here, so that you can find them easily.  I also would like them at my fingertips. 🙂 The second one is the one that I have suggested a few of you watch.  The first one kind of shows where Chris was coming from.  Thanks to Raquel for originally posting something about this.

And … after watching this I’ve been asked if this is the guy who’s college I may be going to .. and yes, yes it is.

Christmas Eve

 Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Psalm 86:8-13.

 

These are for my friends, brothers, and sisters who remember the birth of Jesus in other parts of the world.

“Byzantine Hymn”( In Arabic)

“O Santa Noche” (O Holy Night) .  As I remember with Nelson, Raisa, Yenny, and many others …

New To Some

Kristian Stanfill may be a new name to some of you.  I would highly recommend his EP “Hello”. 

Jesus Paid it All

You Never Let Go

I am so thankful that the love of God is perfect.  I am so thankful that God doesn’t change.  I am so thankful that He never lets go of me.. that He does not want to sever our relationship.  I need reminded of these things tonight to lift my spirit.  Not a good night.  People don’t love like God.  I can’t let what happened to me tonight to affect me too much. God is there.  He has seen every single tear I have cried tonight.  I believe He knows my pain and is saddened by it.  And in that I find comfort and hope.  Let the joy of Christmas and of Jesus rule in my(and every) broken heart, Father.

** I also love that Louie is at the beginning … and what he says**

Everything

I just came across this song … and love it.  I find it to be somewhat of a prayer to God.  This reminded me of Francis Chan’s sermon “I’m in love–part 3”.  He mentioned the dilemma of not loving God as much as you would like to.  So what do you do about it?  Do more?  Try harder?  We cannot muster up love for God out of ourselves.  We must ask God to see His love for us in a new light, that we would love Him more.  That is my prayer for this Christmas season.  That His love for me would be made new to my eyes. 

Ephesians 3:14-19

My Favorite Christmas Song

If not my favorite, it is tied for favorite Christmas song. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a version with all of the verses on youtube, so, this will have to do.  I did, however, paste the lyrics of the other verses underneath the video.

The lyrics are just incredible. The promises of God were fulfilled… Matthew 1:23.  I cannot imagine living back then to experience that joy.  And yet, now, we can rejoice because Emmanuel HAS come!  We can see the full picture.  How awesome! REJOICE!

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, Thou Lord of Might,
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai’s height,
In ancient times didst give the law,
In cloud, and majesty, and awe. [Refrain ]

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them victory o’er the grave. [Refrain]

O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight. [Refrain]

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery. [Refrain]

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
And order all things, far and nigh;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And cause us in her ways to go. [Refrain]

O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of peace. [Refrain]
