Hey, there, dear friends! School is complete for the semester and working on getting my brain in gear for exploring beloved words again.
This is just a little snippet that popped in my head. The phrase “There is always Jesus.” came to soothe my anxious heart in a downtrodden moment and it grew from that to a few simple lines I wanted to encourage you with as this uncertain path we’re on continues to unfold...
As I survey the sustained chaos this month brings,
A few thoughts skitter and timelessness rings:
A season of deepening chill,
A season of sweetest joy.
Flip on the screen these days
And ugly rancor rolls unabated;
Christmas or no,
It’ll still swiftly give you its fill….🙄
Ah, but turn to the truth of His Word
And find unblemished peace and love
To miraculously pour into the aching void…
For, there is always Jesus, friends,
Whatever scrolls across our lives and our feeds.
Blessed babe come to earth, ready to receive us without end,
If only we can shed the tugs of this manic world
And to His tender, urgent call give heed…
May we indeed learn when to shut off the screens, open our Bibles, and give heed to His call! Where this world will soon pass away, seeking Him while we may is our life and breath! Blessings and prayers to you, dear friends! May you each know the incomparable joy of this season! 😊❤
