Avoiding The Christmas Blues!

I was listening to KKLA the other night and Frank Pastore was saying how he was fighting traffic and long lines earlier in the day and found himself loosing his Christmas MoJo. So he asked callers to call in with their most memorable or favorite Christmas gift.

As I listened to so many people talk about being thankful for blessings not purchased in stores my heart began to warm. Listening to testimony of God's hand of blessing in the lives of others began to do a Christmas miracle in my own heart. My MoJo was growing....

So I felt led to call and share my favorite Christmas memory. It was when we received my middle son back from a near fatal car accident. We spent 2 1/2 months in the hospital burn ward with him spending time sitting at his bedside. Then I will never forget spending that Christmas in the Arrowhead Burn Center with my family of five wearing blue gowns and being thankful for our family being together. Also, I will never forget how our church family supported us with gas money, food, prayer, time, shoulders to cry on, and anything we needed.

Come to think of it....The five of us have never spent one Christmas a part from each other...but it was that Christmas that will always come to mind when I start loosing my Christmas MoJo.

How about you? If you find yourself loosing your joy and forgetting about the Greatest Gift and the Reason for the Season...Think back on the one who gave you life and remember how He has blessed you with His Son Jesus Christ....and soon your heart will warm and you too will find your Christmas MoJo back in action....

God Is Inexhaustible By Trip Lee

Lyrics to Inexhaustible :
Verse 1:
Hey, you crazy if you think you can grasp
The eternal ruler who is first and is last
Reigns in the present, and He reigned in the past
Who is perfect and has none to learn in a class
I seen a lot of dudes I don' think they get it
Got a picture in our brain but the King can't fit it
We got a lil box but the King ain't in it
He's way too complex, don't get this thing twisted
I could learn bout Him who's on the throne
But like Badu He goes on and on/I could spit a million rhymes till the song is long
But still not have enough bars like a broken phone
To tell all about the God of Romans known
Through the scriptures that picture should blow your dome
He's amazing behold Him, appraise Him He's golden
Inexhaustible, I'm amazed just to know him
Hey what you know about this God?
He's way too great homie, I can't grasp Him
Hey what you know about this God?
He's too complex my mind can't fathom
What you know about this God?
He's amazing behold Him appraise Him He's golden
Hey what you know about this God?
He's inexhaustible, I'm amazed just to know Him
Verse 2:
For instance I just can't get this HeIs one but eternally exists in three
That's crazy our minds can grip this we
Need to realize we men so our pictures weak
Just try to understand how he came as a man
But remained I Am, all things in His hand
Say what? The King was slain as the lamb
When He came to the land that He made with His hands
Say what? Just try to make your brain understand
He's so big man's like a grain in the sand
That picture's too big for a frame but my plan is to grow
I pray my picture of the King will expand
I could study forever and read all day
But still wouldn't understand the King all the way
I got a long way to go, but I'm pleased to say
I get to live my whole life just to seek His face
Verse 3:
Hey it's not enough words in my speech to proclaim His greatness
Not in the whole English language
To exhaust this King, His past is blameless
I won't stop reppin 'till His name is famous
Among all nations, He still prevails
Praise the Lord that He chose to reveal Himself
When He could have just chilled and concealed Himself
Praise the Lord that He chose to reveal Himself
Now we can share in enjoyment, see more and more
The glory, the beauty of the Lord of Lords
Through Creation, or Scripture's the door to more
Can't get it all on this Earth, there's more in store
When we get to eternity, it'll be better
We get to see more of the Lord forever
A million years later, the joy is the same
Seeing still more and exalting His name
