I was pondering what would be appropriate to say about Christmas in general, as the days of mid December fly by. Here in central Texas, the golden and red-hued leaves are starting to fall off the trees, all at once it seems, as the wind blows, and sometimes blasts, through the branches.
In the last post, I included a link to a video by Christy Nockels and Janna Long. I think the best thoughts I can offer you today about Christmas are in the link below. In it, Christy Nockels sings a beautiful rendition of the classic hymn “A Mighty Fortress is our God’, which is based on Psalm 94:22.
In the middle of this stress-filled world we live in, at this time of year when so many are troubled by what they do not and cannot possess, what better thought can there be than this simple unalterable fact: the God Who created the universe is with and tenderly watches over His children? He truly is our fortress, no matter what comes.
Let this video help you keep your eyes and your heart on our loving Creator during times of personal unrest and distress. And remember the comforting words of Jesus to those who have decided to follow Him:
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. [emphasis added]” (John 10:27-28, New International Version)
