“Rejoice, rejoice!

Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.”

There is something greater coming.

-

This year has been a good year….You’ve worked in me—slowly, maybe; painfully, perhaps; but I can see the changes. Your promise is true; You are with me. And even though I may have back-slidden countless times, grown distant and distracted by the world, vain in my pursuits and foolish in my stumbling (even now my heart is wandering), still you persist in Your goodness towards me. I want to be close to You, and at least in this day - even if it’s an over-commercialized holiday, some perpetuation of pagan naivetes, as cynics may sneer—it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t need to be Christmas. Today I just want to appreciate You.

To my beloved King, thank You. Oh God, I pray You would really impress onto me just who You are, and let that sink deep into my soul.

Thank You for being born. Thank You for being You.

Aaaaah the rare and elusive internet Christian. ;___; You do exist. Sometimes it feels like there are no Christians on the interwebs. Beautiful picture, and thank you for your courage!

Haha, actually I think there are more Christians on the web than you think! I guess most of the time we just don't.....express it, which is a shame |D;;

Thank you for your kind words and encouragement! :)

I want to let you know that when I see your works, I think of Matthew 5:14
you are such a light and i'm sure that God is so pleased that you have multiplied the talent that he has given you.
Merry CHRISTmas :iconcocoloveplz: and thank you for testifying that Jesus is the Reason for the Season :]
