Saturday Song-sausion #18

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Thank you for taking time out of your busy weekend. The final countdown is on with only 4-day till Christmas. To break the stress and to get you in the mood to wrap your pile of presents, let’s unwind with today’s music.

Earlier in the week, my good friend, Callie from JAmericanSpice, introduced a new-to-me artist and it gives me great pleasure to share the sounds of…

Josh Wilson
with you!

 

Wish that I was there,
On that silent night,
When your tiny heart started beating for mine,
I wish I couldn’t seen,
The star in David’s town,
When you turned a stable into Holy ground.
I sing along, the angels song.
Noel, Noel, Jesus is alive.
Emanuel, hope is here tonight.
So go, and tell, the world that death has died.
‘Cause Jesus is alive. Yea Jesus is alive.
The God who made us all,
With these two little hands,
Is bringing us his kingdom quiet as a lamb.
Oh such Amazing Grace!
A divine conspiracy.
This Savior in a manger changes everything.
That’s why we sing.
Noel, Noel, Jesus is alive.
Emanuel, hope is here tonight.
So go, and tell, the world that death has died.
‘Cause Jesus is alive. Yea Jesus is alive.
Sin you have no sting.
Hell you have no power. (Jesus is alive)
Curse you are no more.
This is your final hour. (Jesus is alive)
Because the son of God
Has not left us alone. (Jesus is alive)
He’ll live and die and rise again, and then he’ll bring us home. (Jesus is alive)
The old will pass away
And we will become new. (Jesus is alive)
This baby boy is making all sad things untrue.
Noel, Noel, Jesus is alive.
Emanuel, hope is here tonight.
So go, and tell, the world that death has died.
Noel, Noel, Jesus is alive.
Emanuel, hope is here tonight.
So go, and tell, the world that death has died.
‘Cause Jesus is alive. Yea Jesus is alive.
Yeah Jesus is alive.
Jesus is Alive!!

Jesus is alive.

O Holy night, starry sky
We were dead until tonight
Christmas changes everything
Long lay the world inside our sin
He has come here to forgive
Christmas changes everything
[Chorus:]
Hallelujah, love has found us
Hope in a manger our Saviour is setting us free
This is rescue, Christ has come to make us new
Oh Christmas changes everything
Now God has met us where we are
A thrill of hope for hopeless hearts
His perfect love will shatter every fear
We’re coming back to life again
And it’s all because of Bethlehem
Rejoice, oh rejoice!
[Chorus:]
Hallelujah, love has found us
Hope in a manger our Saviour is setting us free
This is rescue, Christ has come to make us new
Oh Christmas changes everything
We will fall on our knees
We will fall on our knees
We will fall on our knees
O Holy night, holy child
We were dead till you came to life
[Chorus:]
Hallelujah, you have found us
Hope in a manger, oh Saviour we fall on our knees
You are rescue, you are making all things new
Oh Christmas changes everything
Yeah Christmas changes everything

Christmas changes everything.

Sunspiration – Christian symbolism in Christmas

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Christmas is a day set aside to honor Jesus’ birth because no one is quite sure of the exact date. That’s kinda like we may do to celebrate our own birthday on another day than on our real birth date. Each one of us have a special day. Our family and friends like to honor us for this occasion. Why should we not honor our Savior for the greatest gift He has given us? Angels filled the night sky announcing the glorious news of Jesus’ birth,  shepherds flocked to see the wonders that were told to them by the angels, and wise men brought gifts to the new-born babe.

During the 4th century a Roman Bishop established celebrated in honor of Jesus’s birth with the hopes of Christianizing popular pagans customs and the hopes of turning hearts to the one true creator. What a forward thinking man and a huge witness statement for Christ.

Unfortunately the special day was not a huge success in the early years but today it flourishes! The beauty that surrounds the holiday is that Christian symbols are closely entwined into the Christmas festivities. That is, if you just look past the glitter.  Many of which are found in the decorations on our Christmas tree and I bet yours, too.

  • The evergreen tree symbolizes everlasting life, like Christ offers to all. He says, “I give them eternal life…” ~John 10:28.
  • Presents beneath the tree reminds us of the love God gave us through His precious gift to us – His son.“We love Him because He first loved us.” ~1 John 4:19 and for us to be giving of ourselves, as the Magi (2:1-12) to others – through material or non-material means. You don’t have to be wealthy like a king to show your love .
  • Lights remind us that Jesus is the Light of the world. (John 8-12)
  • White is for Our Lord’s purity who knew no sin. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
  • Red is for Christ’s shed blood on the cross to pay my debt. (Hebrews 9:22)
  • Silver symbolizes redemption or payment for our sins through Jesus. (1 John 2:2)
  • Green is for the desire to grow in Christ Him or may also represent life.
  • Gold is for the King of Kings – Jesus Christ. (Revelations 19:16)
  • Stars are a sign that Jesus is the bright morning star (Revelation 22:16) and our hope for eternal life through Him.

The spirit of the season is not corrupt if the true meaning resides in our heart and despite the commercialism of this blessed holiday, there is no other time throughout the year when hearts are kinder than at Christmas time. This is the perfect time to show God’s love.

Have Sunspirational Sunday and enjoy the reason for the season…

Jesus!

Sunspiration – A conversation with God

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Me: God, can I ask You a question?

God: Sure.

Me: Promise, you won’t get mad?

God: I promise.

Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do you mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late.

God: Yes.

Me: My car took forever to start.

God: Okay.

Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait.

God: Hmmm.

Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.

God: All right.

Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~ I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager& relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?

God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of MyAngels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.Me (humbled): OH!

GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that

would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.

Me (embarrassed):Okay

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about that you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me (softly): I see God.

God: Oh and that foot massager… it had a shortage that was going to throw out the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I’m Sorry God.

God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to Trust Me…. in All things , the Good & the bad.

Me: I will trust You.

God: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.

Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for everything today.

God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My children.

Today’s Sunspiration a friend share with me through email. Next time I think God isn’t watching over me or doesn’t have my best interest I hope I can think of this conversation. 😉 Have a happy and blessed Sunday!
