Noel Noel, Have you seen what God has done?
Can you feel it in your heart
Christmas time- a special part.
Consolation has come for Israel
That Prophets of old did foretell
Do you feel Him in your heart
Immanuel, Salvations start
Gabriel’s news to Mary he gave
Birth of Messiah, born to save
God has come in flesh to dwell
Heavens glory did show and tell
About Messiah and His entrance
A virgin shall give birth, To His preeminence
Hearts will break, mankind bend at knee
Giving thanks when they believe
The time is come for God’s own plan
Eternity set in the heart of man
No more to sing Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel-
The Lord was born at Migdol Eder
He has come to save us from our sin
And of His kingdom there shall be no end

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6 NIV)
“And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” (Luke 1-31-33 NKJV)
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV)
I pray that as we get closer to Christmas Day, that the heart and spirit of Christmas is more alive in our hearts than ever. My prayer is that we would share the love of God through Jesus Christ to a lost soul or to a soul who doesn’t understand The Gift. The One true gift that has been given to all who would receive. Scripture tells us that for the joy that was before Him, Jesus willingly endured the cross. Joy often isn’t in the circumstances, it is in realizing the plan of God without limits. What a gift we have received. Can you feel it in your heart?
Come and see what God has done.
God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.
Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
