“So now wrap your heart tightly around the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps his promises!”
Hebrews 10:23 TPT
More than one person has agreed with me, “I’m putting up my Christmas tree early this year.”
Like the leaves changing and popping out brilliant colors, Winter comes and with it, Christmas.
With Christmas, hope.
Witt hope, peace on earth, in our homes.
Hope anyway and always.
Draws us nearer to Jesus in the quiet place of hoping for better, intentionally making the holidays more about God’s gift to us than whether we’ll have gifts for others.
So, maybe decorate early. Sit in the silent evening. Consider your tree as you remember the rugged cross.
“Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.” Fannie Crosby
Continue and believe.
One thought on “Nearer This Year”
Dear Lisa, I am beginning to savor the sweetness of the baby born in a Manger. This year I get to bless the church ladies with a Christmas party. Yes. Peace. Hope. Thank You, Jesus.
