Today I say a prayer for all three aspects of human need. I pray that there may be HOPE in the lives of all who feel hopeless, PEACE where unrest lingers, JOY…unexpectant in heavy hearts and today I light a FAITH candle.
Four candles look pretty impressive. Standing proudly Hope, Peace, Joy and now FAITH. But these in lives cannot and never will be able to stay alight alone. Faith must be anchored and that’s why the celebration of the BIRTH of the SAVIOUR is so important. (It does not matter the day or even the date…but HIS BIRTH is Vital.) Without a Saviour faith is just a light and a word. Hope, peace and joy are transitory and conditional upon outside stimuli. They need an eternal LIGHT.
We continue waiting for the coming of THE DIVINE LIGHT. This is THE LIGHT which will encompass and keep eternally all the other lights burning. Not about a religion but remembering the coming of a Person.
A personal relationship with the Divine. (Possible for ALL WHO will accept fully the GIFT.)
This Glorious Truth only comes with the Birth of the WORD, The Light. and the story in fullness of His Purpose in coming.
Celebrate! Rejoice! Look forward to Christmas. The story of this Baby is truly life changing and world shattering.
Blessings and Love!
