One of our Stepping Stones readers sent to me this link for a video that is so awesome, it brought tears to my eyes. Seriously. Please don’t blow this off. Set aside time to watch this video. God’s power in our design will blow you away. I know you will be moved by this amazing truth, especially during this Christmas season when stress, loss, illness, hurt, depression, addictions, rejection or abandonment get magnified. I know many of you will be experiencing their first Christmas without their spouse, parent, child, sibling, best friend, sanity, well-being or sobriety. Know that Jesus will keep you from falling apart, now and forever.
This clip is six minutes long. Once you see it, you will be inspired to pass it on to those you know who are struggling. Click here now (it is safe) or paste this link in your browser if that is easier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0-NPPIeeRk
Today, after watching this video, stop and realize how Jesus and the cross, physically, psychologically and spiritually hold your life together. Then, pass this to three people who need this proof of Jesus’ intimate involvement in their lives. Tomorrow, be especially thankful for our spiritual laminin. Whether you know and trust GOD will hold you together or you think you can hold yourself together without Him, it’s your decision, so choose well.
Dear Father God, thank You for sending Jesus to hold me together, everyday, forever. Some days, it feels like I will fall apart, but now You give me more evidence that You are always there, intimately in my life, pulling me together. I will wake up tomorrow in joyous celebration of Jesus’ birth. Without Jesus and the hope I get from my salvation, I would surely fall apart. Thank You, Jesus, for dying to be my spiritual glue. I pray in the name of our spiritual laminin, Jesus Christ. And all God’s children say AMEN!
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things were created through Him and for Him. And he is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:11-17
