A few years back, I stumbled across a new Christmas song on the Internet. It was entitled, Your Presence for Christmas. I remember sitting in front of my computer listening to it and weeping. I listened to it over and over again, because it just touched my heart to the core. If you attended our Christmas Tea last Monday night, you heard it there. Let me share the lyrics:
What are you longing for most this Christmas? All the material things are so fleeting, so temporal, so empty. Time spent with the Lord is lasting, fulfilling and eternal. Look at what your day is centered around right now to get a good idea of what you really want. We chase those things that are important to us. Don’t let your time with the Lord get pushed out of the picture during this very busy season. Proverbs 8:34 reminds us – Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. Wait for Him. Hear Him. Watch for Him. Spend time in His presence; it’s all you need, and it’s all He wants.
