      "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect," 1 Peter. 3:15

      The holiday-red card arrived in a square, shiny envelope. Attached to the card were credit-card sized "certificates" for merchandise available in a nearby department store. It wasn't the bargain opportunities but the message on the card that caught my attention: "Let this be the holiday you find new reasons to believe."

      Even in the midst of the bustle of this season, most of us who call ourselves Christ followers could quickly come up with "a reason for the season." We know that tinsel and trees, cookies and candles, family and friends are only side effects of the miraculous birth of the Savior. But how many new reasons for the season could we offer? What new work of God is happening in our lives? What new facets of God's character are we discovering? What new and powerful truths from the Bible are becoming reality?

      I wonder who in the advertising department thought up the potentially life-altering slogan? My skeptical nature doubts that a commercial establishment is interested in my relationship with God. But eleven short words arriving in the mail have focused my attention in new ways. Each day during this beautiful month I want to discover yet another "reason for the season."

        • From Shadows to Sunshine  

          Sometimes life is so hard
          And all hope's out of view,
          And you just feeling like giving up
          But there's someone there for you

          Through the shadows and the mist
          Our God is always there,
          He will lead you into sunshine
          With tender loving care

          So when the trials are too steep
          God wants to let you know,
          That this darkness soon will pass
          And there is not too far to go

          But if things do take a turn
          As sometimes they often do,
          Just fix your eyes on God above
          He’s going to get you through.

          I received this in my Inbox not too long ago.  Just what you need to go the extra mile when you feel you’ve nothing left.  I hope it cheers you and becomes your foundation for the week ahead.

          I’m going through some big changes right now, so words like this really help to keep me strong, level and feel supported.

          Love your words wisdom “never make someone a priority...” I’ve learnt that lesson the hard way!  Have a grat week.
