“For there is born to you this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this shall be the sign to you; You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” Luke 2:11-12, NKJ

I found myself singing a song last week while playing with my daughter in our back yard and I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind! Some of you may remember this chorus, it goes something like this…“Lord, you are more precious than silver, Lord you are more costly than gold and Lord you are more beautiful than diamonds and nothing I desire compares with You.” I remember singing this song in church many years ago, but I can honestly say that these words are now truth in my life. I am a woman with many dreams and ambitions, but when it comes right down to it – Just give me Jesus!

I find myself in an unfamiliar place this Christmas. In years past I have longed for so many things – material possessions, peace, safety and love – all of which are fine, but the truth of the matter is, Jesus holds all of these things and more. As the song so beautifully illustrates, I no longer care about fame or riches untold – Just give me Jesus!

What do you need this Christmas? Do you need money to pay your bills or food for your pantry? Do you need peace for your mind or a son or daughter to return home? Do you need restoration in your marriage or a healing miracle? No matter what you need, your answer is found in Jesus. He came to this earth and performed miracles; He gave His life willingly on the cross and arose from the dead; He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords – He is Jesus and He is everything you need!

Merry Christmas Friends,
