For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ...
~ Philippians 3:20
Amen and amen, come Lord Jesus!
In the meantime, may the Lord richly bless you in your preparations for celebration in this holiday season! May your celebrations be full and over-flowing with the love of the Lord!
If the holiday seasons bring you trials, this is our prayer for you:
... that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height ~ to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
~ Ephesians 3:16-21
