Oh, we wish you a Merry Christmas,
and we wish you fear-free Christmas,
and we wish you a faith-filled Christmas,
and from all of us at D-Y-M!
That's just one example of why my kids drown out my singing when I make up words to popular tunes.
Regardless of my kids, here's another one I'm proud of...
Let it go.
Let it go.
Don't worry 'bout it anymore--
Let it go.
Let it go ---
Just wait to see what's in store.
We don't know, what God has planned.
But if we trust in Him --
He'll give us the strength to stand.
I am proud of that one. They... are not.
(I promise I sang neither of those on today's podcast episode.)
But today's conversation is about faith.
Faith is what we celebrate at Christmas.
The faith we have in Jesus being brought into the world for us.
And this is the faith I want to remind you of during this season that often can get crowded up with all the holiday festivities.
I want to talk about how vital faith is for the miracle you're looking for in your marriage.
I want to talk about how vital faith is for God's hand in your life.
And how -- I don't want to block God's miracles, because of my lack of faith.
There are nuances that I hope you'll listen to from the episode.
But what about when you have faith and God doesn't come through like you hoped? We walk through that as well.
Ultimately, from this episode this is what my aim is:
When we get to the other side of eternity and look back, I hope, hope, hope Jesus will "marvel" at our faith.
That I would not be offended by His choices, but I would have faith all the more regardless.
That I would not disappoint and frustrate Him by lacking in faith, especially after ALL the amazing experiences I've seen others have and those He's given me personally.
May we each stand in that place of faith that moves mountains.
May Christmas provoke us to walk nearer and in closer relationship with and in awe of the man who came to us...
Jesus, who is Christ the King.
PS -- I challenged you to pray about whether or not 2022 would be the year that you spent 3 months focusing on transforming your marriage.
And if it is -- I ask you to schedule a call with a wonderful Clarity Advisor delightyourmarriage.com/cc who can guide you through your own story and see how we can help.
PPS -- Those songs above are not copyrighted (yet--just kidding ;D ), so you can feel free to whip those out the next time you need a bit of extra faith and trust!
