Let's hang all the mistletoe! What a year this has been. This year has been one where the pain, grief, agony, strife, confusion, disturbance, chaos, and every other uninvited negative emotion has been felt by us all. What we experienced and what we felt this year was not isolated. Everyone felt it. Although it has been a rough year, we have so much to be grateful for. God has still allowed us to experience good tidings of great joy.
If you feel as if you don't have any joy, I want you to think about the fact that you are still here. That's joy in itself. Then think about all of your family members who are still here. Think about all that you have. Not all that you want, but all that you have. Praise God because He has done great things!
Now is the time to start a journey of healing. What has been experienced is behind us so we need to enter this season of peace and joy, with peace and joy. Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace, came into this world and gave us the power to conquer everything that tries to conquer us. I want you to commit to your healing. I don't know exactly what you experienced this year but I do know that there is hope. I do know that there is healing. I do know that God wants you whole! Being healed is a wonderful thing. I, myself, had to go through my own healing process this year, physically and emotionally, so I come bearing gifts of grace, understanding, and encouragement. I want you to know that what's ahead of you is far greater than what is behind you. If you are committed to a life of healing & wholeness then you will experience peace, joy, abundance, and purposeful living. Jesus promise to us in John 10:10 is that He came so that we may have life in abundance. Abundant living is your divine right. Allow God to heal you so that you can tap into your abundance. You'll be glad you did.
From my Family to yours: Merry Christmas. Grace and Peace to you, always!
