And the SOUL Felt It’s WORTH, 30NOV
I was so excited to practice O Holy Night, I brought the music to my piano playing friend JUST IN CASE we had the chance to sing it… and YES, WE DID!!! Oh how I longed to sing it – BUT, instead I was blessedly SILENCED. My soul fell on its knees…
I wanted to sing all those fancy high notes that I hit so strongly in the car, but instead by listening to a dear friend sing it so amazingly, I HEARD the strongest message of all Christmas, Easter and all Life, all in just one lyric line…
“AND THE SOUL FELT IT’S WORTH”
I was stopped, like “Be Still” stunned, I had to stop singing. We tend to think that big events bring us to a halt and bring us to our knees – but what about those whispers directed SOLELY (SOUL-Y) to us. Whew, SOULFULLY I never really heard that lyric like I heard it today – we sing these songs all the time but do we really feel the lyrics? We know the real “reason for the season” – but do we FEEL IT? And the SOUL FELT IT’S WORTH! Everything lacking, waiting, and hungering for the Lord could now be fulfilled, found, and fed when Jesus arrived. He made us new – renewed – worthy.
Jesus, our Savior, was born on Christmas, as prophets and faithful predicted AND THEIR SOULS WAITED. Jesus came and fulfilled our soul’s worth – each soul, your soul, my soul, all…
“Till He appeared and THE SOUL FELT IT’S WORTH.”
Yes, HOPE comes thru Jesus, we can have HOPE of peace eternal and in tiny increments. Hope for healing, hope for home, and hope for WHOLENESS. The Spirit instilled into each of us makes OUR SOUL COMPLETE WITH JESUS. YOU ARE WORTH EVERYTHING TO GOD!!!
If you want to know your WORTH – think about how God loves you – how your SOUL-NESS becomes WHOLENESS and HOLINESS with the existence, presence, saving grace of Jesus.
Christmas is beautiful – and hopeful – and sorrowful too – the soul broken for us had to come first into the world – Jesus had to be broken to make us WHOLE.
I want to urge EVERYONE in the world that if anyone has not yet taken Jesus as your Lord, as your life focus, to live and to share life, please pray and reach out for Him.
Merry Christmas – Thank You Jesus!
O Holy Night the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the SOUL FELT ITS WORTH
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new glorious morn
FALL ON YOUR KNEES
O hear the angels’ voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
