He paid for it in full

Christmas reminds me of all the presents I’ve received…

Today can I share my list with you

To my surprise while I was angry bitter and unforgiving Christmas gave me peace ~

Blinded by my own self centred views of this world, Christmas showed me good will ~

When I sold out on my own values and the most important things my family taught me, Christmas demonstrated redemption ~ buying back everything I had wasted.

Acceptance doesn’t come cheep neither does Christmas ~ he accepted me just as I am, no performance, no longer people pleasing ~ just resting in his acceptance ~ .

The biggest present i received was SALVATION ~
Renewing my mind plus a new identity
A box of values and principles to live by

Shoes that reinforced that I’m worthy to be his Son ~

A garment stating I’m righteous ~ in his sight

To keep it all together ~ christmas gave me a belt of truth to remind me, I have a better life beyond this one…

The presence of Christ is the true meaning of Christmas for he will never leave you or forsake you…

“Fellowship is life”
