What do you want for Christmas?

 

SPRINGFIELD, MO. — This Christmas ask the Lord for a special gift. Ask Him to bring healing to the situations and ailments that have caused you pain in 2005.

 Make a list for the holidays. Not a gift list. Not a guest list. Not a to-do list. This is a list that details your hurts and disappointments.

 Once your list is complete, place it in your Bible. Then ask the Lord to perform miracles on your behalf.

Ask Him to help you replenish your finances, to restore your broken relationships, to heal your body, to reach your wayward family members.

 Jesus promised you “good gifts” in Matthew 7:9-11: “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (NIV).

 This Christmas surrender your worries to Jesus and lay claim to His gifts of peace, rest and comfort. 

 Jesus says in Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
