The old man dies to bring in the new.
A new reflection is about to be birth in you.
The road you take is nothing new, it’s been traveled
before, long before you knew this road is for you.
Past mistakes need not follow you, for the steps you
take lead to something new. It’s time to let the Spirit
guide the new creature that resides in you, to grant the
desires He place inside of you.
So look to the horizon for something new is about to
breakthrough, but only if you let go of the
past and allow Him to do what He needs to do.
Resurrect yourself to something new. Allow the Spirit
to get you through the next second, minute, hour and all year
through. Open yourself to something different and unique.
Don’t put Him in a box; He doesn’t put limits on you.
Allow His reflection to be resurrected in you.

Grace is silent it speaks to no one.
It came in silently underneath a star that
shined like the sun.
Wrapped in humility that no one would wear,
a sacrificial lamb that would one day carry
the weight of the world.
Yes, Grace was silent when heaven’s angels
spread the news, that the Messiah has come,
Emanuel, God is with you.
Only the humble were called to this place, an invitation
to witness the prophecy that took place.
Shepherds they are called, for they will spread the good
news, to tell the world that grace has come and that the
law can no longer condemn you.

Its okay to let it out when you’re disappointed and you don’t know what to do. Its okay let it go, tell God, “Lord, I’m confuse, tell me, tell me, what I should do. I’ve done all I know how, the rest I leave to you. I’m trying to be strong and trust in you, but everywhere I turn nothing seems to come through.”
Its okay let it out, let it flow, cry to your hearts content it detoxifies the soul. Don’t hold it in and allow bitterness to poison you. Let it out and cry, “Lord, I need a breakthrough.” I Know know we’re suppose to be strong, but somehow the tears that fall really do help you to go on.
So let it all out when you’re alone. Let him hear your cries, your worries and your moans; for it is his Spirit that speaks to you, the Holy Spirit that intercedes for you.
Crying doesn’t mean you’re weak or upset that you didn’t get your way. It just means you’re human and you know that God’s way is the best way. So let it out and let it go, it heals the mind, body, spirit and soul.

As the holiday season is upon us, I can’t help but see all the images that portray the season we’re in. It’s Christmas hooray and more, seeing the worries on people’s faces as they run around looking for the best deals for their daily, weekly or monthly wages.
Hum, I think to myself as they race through the store. Have they thought about those who can’t afford? Have they thought about them all year long? Did they know that some one has lost their home and everything they own? They have a gimme, gimme, gimme look on their worried little faces. I pay my offerings and tithes with a smug look on their faces.
They say they are Christians you see, they say that, greater is he who is me; “hey, hey, hey, look at me. I am the image of Christ that’s what a Christian means.” Oh really I think to myself, well let me see. When was the last time you took a friend to church, or called to see if they needed anything, to make sure they weren’t sick or hurt? When did you pay some ones’ rent so they wouldn’t be out with only their shirt? When did you clean out your pantry, refrigerator or give away the best clothes you don’t wear? “I do that”, you say, “I do that once every year.” Oh yes, Christmas time I suppose, that’s when it’s proper to give with cheer,” Tis the season to be jolly, during this time of year.” But what is your image all year long? Is Christ only there when good fortune comes along? Is it there when the haves’ have and the have not s’, not; Um, I think not. The image of Christ is all year round you see. The Image of Christ is not the gifts under the tree or a once a year thing, don’t you see. The image that so many claim to have is when you give your last so your neighbor can have. It’s a sacrifice, an image of love from you to me. The Image that was portrayed by the man you call Savior who die and rose again so we can be free.
It says in his word to love completely, all year long; not when it’s the proper time or when you fortune seems to be on the raise. Give of your time in prayer and song. Give, not just at this time but all year long. This is the image you want others to see, an image of Christ who showed us how to be in his and not in the image of I, you or me.
