Merry Christmas has real meaning

“For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son”. Do we really know what that means? I know we all interpret the bible in our own way. Think about how much love it would take to give up your only child for the worlds sins. Is there anyway any mortal man could comprehend that much love? We as human beings understand that life is finite. We understand that in God’s eyes, we are only here for a moment. However, there are those moments that God smiles on all of us that believe in Him, and grants us a miracle. I can honestly say that this Christmas I have been granted one of God’s miracles. To many people who read this, it may not seem like much. Until you have been in a situation of complete hopelessness, and despair you can not understand what I am about to tell you.

I am one of the unfortunate that have been unemployed for over a year now. I have basically lost a vehicle to repossession because of being unemployed. Understand that just because I am drawing unemployment, I am not just sitting here doing nothing. I have been to numerous interviews, filled out many, many more applications. At this point the only thing I have for employment is a seasonal job for an amusement park. Not too much to build a life around, or support a family with a special needs child.

I am still looking for work. I have yet to give up just because I haven’t found anything. Recently, I lost my father to a massive stroke that took him from us all. Although my dad and I were not close, and the friendship was not there, he was still my dad and I still feel the sense of loss for him. The bills have gotten to the point that now “Peter is wanting his money we have been paying Paul”. I have helped a very dear friend of mine that I have never met through some very troubling times for him and his family. Through it all, I have never asked “when is it my turn?” I can say honestly that God saw what I and my roommate has been doing and in the last couple of days he has rewarded us greatly!

The old saying of, “what you send out will come back to you ten fold” is true. We have sent out love, and love is being shown to us in more ways than we ever imagined. Many people would call them blessings or miracles. I just call it love. Once again Heavenly Father, thank You so much for the love You have shown us.

I know the Christmas celebration (holiday) was established by the Catholic church. Many Christians have a problem with it being so close to the Wiccan celebration of Yule. Regardless, it is still a celebration of Jesus’ birth. How many of us could possibly deal with knowing you were to die for people who were never born in order for them to be saved in the eyes of your Father? God saw fit to claim the Jews as His chosen people. He also saw fit to make America His chosen country. Isn’t it time we repaid the eternal wisdom of God, and prove to Him we are worthy of the many blessings He’s given us? There was only one time there was no room in the Inn for Joseph and Mary. So Jesus was born in a stable.

Let us not say again there is no room in the Inn for God in this country. God have given us many things in our history to prove his love for this nation. Thank You God for everything you have done for me, and the country I love. It’s time we repay You for everything You have done for this nation. Merry Christmas everyone!
