"Though I'll share my faith unapologetically, I beg fellow faith-filled fallible human beings to quit pretending anyone's effective in forcing others to see the light; please also quit pretending you are holier than thou. You are not. I am not. We're merely fortunate enough to have been knocked to our knees at some point in life and grabbed hold of the opportunity to accept undeserved grace and forgiveness that allows a rebirth and its accompanying peace that passeth all understanding. I cling to it not because I am bitter, but because there is nothing better." Sarah Palin
"Knocked to our knees".. this phrase got me thinking about the Christmas season and how easy it is to get distracted by gifts, cookies, presents, christmas trees and parties that surround us. We often forget to fall to our knees and thank God for the best gift of all; His Son. Without Him where would we be? We would certainly be without His undeserved love, grace, forgiveness, and the peace that passeth all understanding.
Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven!
For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 136:26
Let's remember to slow down and worship Him this Christmas.
