Merry Christmas! Walk by faith not by sight. Many years ago the Shepard’s saw a star on high. They walked by faith and not by sight. Can you imagine that type of faith? Is that the faith you feel filled with this Christmas season? Do you trust in the Lord with all your heart and mind and go boldly in the direction He leads you?
Today I m reminded of Faith because it is the Winter solstice. Dec 21st is my second favorite day of the year. My favorite day of the year is June 21st the Summer solstice, the longest day of the year. I love the Sunshine. I love long days in the light. I spend six months looking forward to both of these days. Today is the shortest day of the year for Sunshine. Tomorrow the days start getting longer. I look forward to the longer days of light.
Faith is like that. I look forward to the promises of God. I know that there are days of darkness. I also know by faith that there are days of lots of light ahead.
God says in His word;
Philippians 4:8[Full Chapter]
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
So today, the day of the least amount of Sunshine in the year, I will chose to think about the days of the most. Isn’t it cool that we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus on the days of the least amount of sunlight? I believe this helps us focus on the true light He has brought to our dark world. Today, as you are preparing to celebrate His light, be filled with it too. Continually remember to walk by faith and not by sight.
For we live by faith, not by sight.
