The Most Wonderful Time of the YearDecember 4, 2012 | Written by Maureen Stanek
December is already here! Can you believe it? This year has been full of the goodness of God in our lives. We have watched Jesus heal people’s bodies and minds, fill them with the precious Holy Spirit, protect them from dangerous accidents, restore broken relationships and so much more. How thankful we are to Him! I am reminded today of David’s words in Psalms 27:13, “ I would have despaired had I not believed I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Despair and hopelessness do not need to remain in our lives when we put our trust in God and His faithfulness to us. Let’s finish this year strong- not strong in our own power but strong through our union with Christ. This means spending time waiting upon the Lord, ministering to Him by singing and praying and enjoying His presence.
Let’s enter the year 2013 with love in our hearts for others, not holding on to grievances or offenses from yesterday but releasing others through the power of forgiveness. We are watching God move mightily in our midst. Our services have been full of the divine presence of God as He has been touching people. We have entered the door to the miraculous and there is so much more awaiting us.
Please find below some wonderful events for your family for the month of December. It is the season to be with our loved ones and celebrate all month long the birth of the Lord Jesus. He has certainly made a difference in all our lives and we are forever grateful. Come out and be a part of the gatherings this month. Save these dates!
