​I woke up with a song in my heart, We Are the Reason, sung by Avalon, written by David Meece. I strongly urge you to go to You Tube and listen to it this morning. Just to give you a teaser, this portion really gets to me this Christmas morn:

I’ve finally found the reason for living
It’s in giving every part of my heart to Him
In all that I do, every word that I say
I’ll be giving my all just for Him, for Him.

And we are the reason that He gave His lifeest
We are the reason that He suffered and died
To a world that was lost, He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live
He is our reason to live.

Don’t You know that you are the reason
That He came oh, He came to save us
When He gave His life for us, He suffered and died.

To a world that was lost He gave
Everything that He had He gave (everything)
To show us the reason to live..

Oh the hope in this song. We are not just a happenstance! Lovingly created , carefully designed, purposely fashioned – and if that was not enough, God said it was not finished until He came to redeem us by giving His own life, sparing nothing, He gave us "a reason to live".

Hallelujah – this is a real Christmas present! Glory be to our God!

Wherever you find yourself on life’s journey this morning – take a moment and think. about a yesterday – maybe one of  long ago, maybe one of just a few days – isn’t it better now than it was then? Can you give God a thank-you that He kept you, that He blessed you, that He has raised you from what you were, to what you are becoming…And the best news, He is not finished, for:

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Philippians 1:6 (KJV)

Merry Christmas!!
