{ Wednesday's Word - Invitation }

Have you ever felt left out?
Abandoned?
Alone?
Rejected?

It's sad to say, but sometimes all those feelings seem to come flooding over us, 
especially at CHRIST-mas-time.....
a time that is full of celebration and happiness but can often conjure up almost a feeling of depression because of unmet expectations or just simply missing those who have left a hole in our hearts with their absence.

I'm starting a new Bible study, Lysa Terkeurst's "Uninvited", and it is all about those feelings I mentioned in the beginning.

As I thought about the word "invitation" these verses of scripture came to mind.

Aren't you glad that God didn't leave out those who had problems and difficulties?  He seemed to think about them the most because.....
in my humble opinion.....
He knew that some of us would have weaknesses and struggles and need a little extra help!

HOPE each of you has a wonderful Wednesday!

I'll be celebrating with our family the birth 10 years ago of Sawyer, our precious second grand-boy.

God is so good, Y'all and I HOPE each of you can say that you know Him personally!

  1. Thank you for this reminder to remember those who may feel alone at Christmas (and at other times as well). Yes, Christ came for ALL...no one was excluded on HIS gift list! I have to keep reminding myself that this is truly what Christmas is all about...not the gifts, but the GIVER OF THE BEST GIFT OF ALL. Happy Birthday to your grandson Sawyer! 10 is a great age to be!!
