And the lord said to the bondman, Go out into the ways and fences and compel to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23 The Darby Translation

Tis is the Season
Tis is the season! Thoughts of sugar plums danced in her head. For many this is not and will not be the case. Instead worry, haste and lack of the world's definition of enough will take away the joy of many.
When we look at this season through the world's mindset we totally miss the true meaning, the whole picture.
Instead of sugar plums dancing in my head as I woke there were these simple words "who do you say I am?" That question makes me look deeper inside not only at seasons but deeper within myself. He is no longer the Child in the manger or no longer the Man on the cross. Yes, He did come as that Child and He did hang on a cross for you and me! But if we stop there we (Christ-followers) will also miss the whole picture.
So how do we, how do I answer the same question that He asked of His disciples? Peter hit the nail on the head when He replied "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:15-16). But somehow I believe He wants a more personal answer of me this morning.
To me He is my deliverer, redeemer, healer, and giver of life. Each of these words defines what He has done in my life. For once I was held captive in sin and He delivered me. I could not be good enough so He redeemed me. I could not make myself whole so He healed me. I was doomed to death (a very slow death) and He gave me life.
That is who I say He is. How about you? Who do you say this Man called Jesus is?
Who am I? I am a princess. For my Father is the King of kings and Lord of lords. This statement is of great importance because I was not always a princess. Once I was simply a lost soul dwelling in a pit. Then one day all things in my life changed. My Father, God reached down and lifted me from the pit giving me new life. In Him, I have found peace, love and hope. This is my greatest role by far for in it I find joy to be all the titles that follow me. Finish reading about me in my pages listed above.
