My Christmas Story


My Christmas Story - My Hea
venly Father was Always There
I am not going to tell you a Christmas story today, but I want to tell about the goodness of God, through the belief in Jesus; the reason I believe there is a Christmas. For many years now, regardless of what is happening, I feel the love of God because I allow it, and trust in his son. Therefore, for me, that is the true meaning of Christmas. God sent his only son to die for me, and you, so that we could go to God the Father.
John 3:16-18 (ESV) 16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through him.”

A Jesus Christmas
We have snow in Vancouver, and it is awesome and breathtaking, but I tell you it takes a lot of courage and faith to drive on those roads. Poor distracted drivers are one of pet peeves because they don't seem to understand the power they have when they wield that big pile of metal.

They don't seem to conceptualize that one sudden change in the flow of traffic such as the car slowing in front of them, could lead to deadly situations on the icy roads.

I found this wonderful video, and I wanted to share it with you. It is true, what Christmas is about.

The Awesomeness of God

The Awesomeness of God
I don’t even know if awesomeness is a real word, but I love the way it sounds, so I am going to use it. I searched the web for awesomeness and found this cute puppy, above, and wanted to share its awesome cuteness with you.
However, actually, I wanted to talk about the awesomeness of God, and how even in his strength and sternness, he loves me. Sometimes when I read the bible, it seems like one section contradicts the other, and in particular, it confuses me when I read scriptures like Roman 9:10-18 (ESV),
“Though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or bad—in order that God's purpose of election might continue, not because of works but because of him who calls— she was told, “The older will serve the younger.” As it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.” What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God's part? By no means! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion …
