Together We Breathe, Together We Wait, The Best is Yet to Come!

Friday, December 26, 2014

Some of you have asked for the playlist from the Christmas Holy Yoga class. Here is the playlist, a video of "God with Us" and the pray from the end. I pray you all had a very blessed Christmas and felt the love of your Father!

I can't wait to see all that He has planned for us in 2015!

Luke 2:8-20
The Shepherds and the Angels
And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest,

    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”[a]
15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 ButMary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

Prayer: God, lay ourselves out before you this morning in awe of who you are. Of what you’ve done for us. For the fact that this was always plan A. We live in a world that believes you owe us something when in reality you owe us nothing! It’s only in your great compassion on us that you sent your son to be born into this world to die to make a way for us to be right with you. It’s only in your great compassion that we get to come to you at all. We are so thankful that you have given us your spirit to guide and sustain us. To breathe life into us and give us strength for the journey. You are a loving and gracious father! Oh God, may we never take that for granted. We are free in you. God help us to get free and stay free never becoming slaves again. And God, just like those so long ago waited for the coming of the long awaited Savior, we look back and celebrate what you’ve done, but we always look forward to your coming again. We love you Lord and we together, here on our mats today, we breathe … we breathe you in. We breathe in your grace and we breathe out your praise! And together this morning and in the days that follow, we wait. Because Lord, the best is yet to come.

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus: December Playlist and Schedule

Monday, December 1, 2014

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year. The smells, the music, the excitement mounting in the air. It's almost palpable. But the thing that draws me in is the hope. The hope of whats to come. We know what's behind us, but we have no idea what's ahead. We know what this last year has brought. We know the joy and the sorrow. We know the health and the sickness. 

For believers, we know that we didn't take one step of it alone. We know this because of Christmas. We know what we celebrate this time of year, the birth of Jesus, is not another birthday. It's not another holiday that gathers families. It's the Father gathering his children. He's drawing us near. He's gathering his family together to celebrate. He gave us Jesus as our great promised deliverer so that we don't walk alone. We walk in hope. Expectant hope that He is coming back. 

We wait. 

As they waited all those many years ago. 

Generation after generation. 

With Hope.

With Faith. 

We know He's coming back.

"Before they left the garden, God whispered a promise to Adam and Eve: “It will not always be so! I will come to rescue you! And when I do, I’m going to do battle against the snake. I’ll get rid of the sin and the dark and the sadness you let in here. I’m coming back for you!” And he would. One day, God himself would come."

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
 Isaiah 9:6

So below is the playlist, all except "The Darkest Midnight" by Bono. It's on Michael W. Smith's new Christmas Album and was not available on Spotify. But it's amazing! Go look it up.
