““Master, where are You going?” Simon Peter said to Him. Yeshua answered, “Where I am going, you cannot follow Me now; but you will follow Me later.” Peter said to Him, “Master, why can’t I follow You now? I’ll lay down my life for You!” Yeshua answers, “Will you lay down your life for Me? Amen, amen I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times!””
John 13:36-38 TLV
Tomorrow we will celebrate the birth of Jesus (some Christian countries celebrate earlier or later this month, others the first week of January) but we should not cease to celebrate and honor him after one day has passed, for every day is his birthday as it is ours.
Every day we are birthed out of experiences, we see things for the very first time, we overcome a fear that could have crippled us, and we touch someone’s life. Every day we should take the next step to be more like Jesus, and to live on purpose, with purpose, just as he did.
Merry Christmas (whenever you celebrate it) and Happy Holidays family!
Father, You know what’s in my heart, You know my desire to grow and to develop a closer relationship with You and Jesus, and You know that each day I work harder to overcome my fears and trust that You will always see me through. I know that I can call on You to bring me calm during the darkest of times, and during the heaviest of storms.
Please keep my eyes, mind, and heart pointed in the right direction so that my feet always know where to go. Continue to bless me with discernment so that I use the best of my time living as I should, spending moments with those who are most deserving, and reflecting Your goodness even when I’m not getting it from others. Help me to always see and hear Your voice. In Jesus’ Name I pray to You. Amen.
