“I, Jude, am a slave to Jesus Christ and brother to James, writing to those loved by God the Father, called and kept safe by Jesus Christ. Relax, everything’s going to be all right; rest, everything’s coming together; open your hearts, love is on the way!” Jude 1:1-2 MSG
December begins a month, with Christmas not far off, where our hearts often turn towards giving. We may look forward in anticipation to the upcoming joy of time spent with family and those we care for, celebrating love in all of it’s forms and fashions. December for some, may also be a month where we want to hide away, until all the painful reminders of our own loss and loneliness subside.
Whether in sadness or in celebration, the Lord God has made provision for one and all, for He knows exactly what we need at this exact moment in time. Pouring out His great love for us He gave us the best, and truly the only gift, we would ever need—the life and love of His own dear Son, Christ Jesus our Lord. Who in dying for us, brought us fully into life. Life now in abundance and life forever more.
In this month of giving joy and receiving blessings, you can open your heart wide and accept the good gifts God has for you! The gift of life, eternal and complete; the gift of hope that everything will be all right; the gift of trust that the One Who loves you so, will never let you go! He knows you as no one ever has—understands your heart; your needs; your fears and your failures; and He knows exactly what to do.
His gifts of love are on their way, soaring towards you on wings of angels. Specifically chosen with you in mind. Trust Him, dearly loved one. Anticipate, wait in hope, and see. He has you in the palm of His hand and in the centre of His heart. The absolute best and safest place to be!
