The 12 Praise of Christmas


The 12 Praise of Christmas

I love this time of year so much. How blessed we are that Christ came to dwell among us.
I know for many that it is so overwhelming with all the gift giving and pressures during time with family.  I pray that you will find peace this season.

We will celebrate the coming of 
The Prince of Peace.

I know that some people get frustrated because the real focus of our King and Savior is completely lost among all the hustle and bustle. I pray that you will be able to enjoy the moments and the beauty that surrounds us.

Here are The 12 Praise of Christmas for those trying to focus on the real reason for Christmas with great verses and some of my favorite songs. I hope these verses and songs will sing to your heart throughout this Christmas Season.(Each contains a link that will take you to the song.)

Thank You, Lord, for deciding who I am!

Seek Him First! Today's Bible Reading

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.

It is of utmost importance that you know that Christ died for you. He died for all sinners so that our relationship with Him could be restored.

Because of His sacrifice on the cross we can have peace. Are you seeking more peace today? Peace of the soul can only be given through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.

I hope that you, too, know the saving grace of an amazing God.
