The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined. Isaiah 9:2

Dear Heavenly Father — As we enter another new year, may Your light shine brightly through us, each day, week, and month — throughout the entire year — so that we would be faithful witnesses for You, that many will see You illuminated and glorified! Give us the strength and courage to never hide, or conceal, Your light within us, but let it shine for all to see! We praise and honor You, thanking You for Your precious gift of salvation through Christ Jesus, our Lord! May many be drawn to Your eternal light this year. Amen.

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14 -16

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Loving Father,
Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate
and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift
and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing
which Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning
make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds
with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven,
for Jesus’ sake.


Robert Louis Stevenson (November 13, 1850 – December 3, 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist and travel writer. His best-known books include Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Who do you seek to please? God or yourself?

In all that you do, ask this question: Is this pleasing to God? Or am I doing it to please me?

What you do for God will have eternal value. What you do for yourself will fade away.

As a human being, you were created to please and glorify God. You were created by Him and for Him!

For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16

May Hebrews 13:20 &21 be our prayer:

Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
