Happy Birthday Jesus!

Above: a photo I took and put on my Instagram page the other day of a Bible that was "The Message" version. I was moved at how powerful this verse was in Jeremiah chapter 29. When we seek God with our entire hearts, we will find Him!

Hi Blog friends!

Merry Christmas eve! How are the each of you doing? I am enjoying being home for the holidays with the family. Today is Jesus's birthday, let us rejoice!

Amidst all the Christmas presents, the family gatherings, and everything else, I can't help but overflow with joy when I think about what Jesus did for the each of us on that cross. I mean come on, who dies for someone?! You have to really love and care for something to pay the price that Jesus did for us when He died for our sins that day. 

"He will be a great joy and delight for you, and many will rejoice because of His birth."
Luke 1:14

I was driving around town today, running errands, reflecting on this truth. I then began to overflow with joy, which eventually lead to some tears. I am so thankful for my relationship with Christ, my friends. He is the number one reason that I am here today, and also why I have hope for tomorrow. Of course the presents are fun, but Jesus is so much better than all of that. He is the answer to everything in our lives, and today I pray that we would each recognize and reflect on this truth.

What are your thoughts on Jesus dying on the cross for us? Isn't it amazing?! I am so thankful. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, I love you all! Look for some upcoming posts on here this week, where I will be talking about condemnation versus conviction!

Love always, Jess
