“The warmth of my love surrounds you. In my presence, you find comfort. As you live your life to honor me, so you will know my great peace. You will experience the joy of my blessings and you will not only see them in the big things you will also see them in the little things. Often the little things have the most impact upon your life. So, keep your eyes open wide for I speak to you in many ways. Listen for my voice and endeavor to continually be receptive to the things that I desire to speak to your heart.
In this season of remembrance, when I sent Jesus my son into the world, there are many things that can be a distraction. The things of your world are not focused on the things of my Spirit or the reasons you remember the purpose for His coming. The light of my truth shines through my Son, and He is the one who is worthy of all praise, honor, and glory.
Man has made his traditions around Jesus’ birth and it can be easy to get caught up in things which have nothing to do with Him. He is the greatest gift and he should be the greatest focus in the hearts of my children during this time of celebration.
As you give gifts, remember the gift I gave you in my Son. As you receive gifts, receive Jesus with thanksgiving in your heart. Let the symbolism of giving and receiving impact your Christmas season in such a way that it deepens your intimacy with me. Let the giving of my grace be wrapped up in all the pretty packages you give to others. For it will be opened and received with great joy. No gift can compare to the presence of Christ as he is received into the hearts of men.
The warmth of my love is Jesus. He is my gift to you. If you open your heart to receive all that he has for you, you will understand the true meaning of Christmas this holiday season.”
