This is a picture of Nathan, Danelle and I singing, “Your Presence” at our Christmas Concert. The words caught my attention as soon as I heard the song.
“In the busy Christmas noise, All the light, the bells, the toys, I have found You are the only source of comfort and joy.
Lord, I want Your presence for Christmas. I want Your presence for Christmas. I long to hear Your spirit speaking peace to my heart. Of all the gifts I may receive, there’s only one I really need. And it’s Your presence, Your presence for Christmas.
When this Holiday is through and the year is fresh and new, what will linger are the moments spent, my Lord just worshiping You.
Breathe on me. Breathe on me. I want Your presence, Your presence for Christmas. “
I was thinking about this and how true it is. In all the hustle and bustle of the season if the Lord is not present for our Christmas, it is not at all important. This train of thought brought me to this, wouldn’t it be awesome if Jesus decided to return for us on Christmas 2010? How awesome would that Christmas gift be? Wow! However, He decides to wait, I still want His presence to be present at my Christmas.
Have a very Merry Christmas everybody! Be blessed in the New Year!
