And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God. Luke 1:35
I wanted to write to you today and thank you for the amazing gift you gave me and all of humanity. It was so thoughtful of you to think of us! I really wasn’t expecting something so wonderful and life giving!
I am of course, writing to thank you for Jesus. For that little baby you breathed into Mary thousands of years ago. For that little child who grew to be a powerful yet quiet man. God clothed in skin who experienced all the hardships, joys, temptations, love, frustrations and miracles you have blessed this world with.
I’m so sorry, however, that your Son had to also experience the pain of our sin. When I think of His last days it brings me so much sadness. Your gift to us was so beautiful and we destroyed it with a vengeance. And yet you still love us. So much so you raised up that gift of Jesus for awhile to teach us a few more lessons before He went home to you.
Heavenly Father, we are entering into a season that should be all about the gift of your Son, Jesus. Help us, through your Holy Spirit, to remember that little baby, that man, who gave so much in order to cleanse us of our sins.
Today, oh God, I’m so thankful for the salvation your Son brought to those of us who pronounce Him King of our lives. Your gracious and mercy-filled gift to us is all we ever need. I know this small note of thankfulness can never repay you for your kindness. I look forward to seeing you one day so that I can thank you in person.
Your loving servant,
I hope you have enjoyed these 30 Days of Thankfulness! I’m taking some time off from the blog to enjoy this most wonderful time of the year! God bless and Merry Christmas!
