Our Greatest Gift

Advent, Week 4, Day 5 – Jesus, Our Greatest Gift of Christmas

I would like to close out our season of Advent with worship.  It is truly the only adequate response as I consider all Jesus has done, and the price he paid, to give us hope not only this holy season, but through life.  I would love it if our last act together for Advent is to worship together.  Would you please join me?

Wonderful, Merciful Savior

Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would’ve thought that a Lamb could
Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost our way
Oh, we’ve hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we’re falling before Your throne

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Thank you for joining me these past 4 weeks.  I have marveled with you, been convicted with you, wept with you, and prayed for you.  I can’t imagine having lived the last 4 weeks without our time together.  Thank you for being a part of my Advent celebration.
I would be honored if you would be willing to share with me how our time has helped in some way.  It would encourage me very much.  For me, it has given me time to really think about you and what you are going through.  (Even if you’ve never confided.) It has given me a chance to pray for you, and to remember how God has kept me through my horrible times.  Most of all, our time together has reminded me in beautiful detail of the amazing gifts Jesus gives every day, if we would receive them.
Thank you once again!  A blessed New Year!
With love,
Robin

  2. Advent is such a wonderful pause, and I loved how your writing, your posts, caused me to do just that. Only I felt like I was pausing with a friend…you!
    It gave me reflection to several years ago, when depression was so dark, and let me recognize how far I have come because of Jesus’ healing. Thank you, Robin!

    1. Thank you so much Peggy for your thoughtful reply! I’m so glad God used it. I love those moments when God allows us to see how far we’ve come. Those moments strengthen and encourage me. Thanks for letting me know friend! Thank you also for the many conversations during the month. I’ve enjoyed them as well. God bless!

  3. Hi Robin! Thank you for your faithful journey through this Advent season. It has encouraged me through what has been a period of physical illness and fears of more serious health conditions which were happily alleviated just yesterday through faith and prayers lifted up on my behalf by my church and many friends worldwide. I look forward to our candle-lit Christmas Eve worship service, to which I am taking two young Hindu friends of mine from India. They have open hearts and minds, so I hope that this service dedicated to the birth of Jesus helps to bring light to their souls.
    Have a Very Merry and God-Fearing Christmas, Robin!
    From your friend in Christ on the blogosphere–Timi 🙂

    1. Timi, thank you so much for joining me, and I’m so very grateful it helped. I’ve prayed God would bless and use it for the encouragement of others. Thank you for letting me know he answered! I’ve prayed for each person, whether known or unknown for comfort and grace. I’m glad to hear that you have gotten good reports. Praise God! May our Lord bless you the remainder of this celebration and through your New Year. I pray also God minister His amazing love to your Hindu friends. Love, Your friend, Robin
