Friday Fun -- Matt Fore

Hi friends!

I'm starting a new adventure over on Living Joyfully Free. I'm adding Living Joyfully Free Moments during the week, which will be small audio clips or videos from Christian comedians, singers, and others who have a love and passion from God.

Please join me over on Living Joyfully Free for a short, fun audio clip from Christian comedian, Matt Fore -- "Ask".

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is here and we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. At His birth, light came to a dark world, Heaven sang, and captives were freed. Man found hope, new beginnings, restoration, joy, and redemption.

Words cannot adequately express my feelings for a God who would choose willingly to leave Heaven’s glories to take on the flesh of man, complete with all the pain of suffering of living in a fallen world.

Why did Jesus humble Himself to be born a pauper’s son?
What did He look like as a baby?
At His first steps, did the ground tremble in gratitude?
How did His laugh sound?
Did His snow angels sparkle?
Did puppies wag and kittens purr as Jesus walked by?
Did trees long to bow at His feet?
Did the wind play in his hair?
Did hearts melt at His smile?

Why did He live for thirty-three years knowing every temptation and every heartache common to man?
Why did He come to die for sinners?

Why Jesus, did You choose a sinner like me?

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You.
Thank You for Your Son.
Thank You, for Your unfailing love.
Thank You, Jesus for coming to earth.
Thank You for calling to the lost and providing a way for us to come home.
Thank You for every sacrifice You made.
Happy Birthday, my precious Savior.

Please watch and listen to the song, "Happy Birthday, Jesus"

Merry Christmas!

Trusting God

5.0 out of 5 stars Trusting GodDecember 18, 2011

Like sitting and talking about God with your best friends on the front porch, Gwen Smith, Mary Southerland, and Sharon Jaynes, invite you into their lives with their new book, Trusting God. In a world filled with fear and uncertainty, Sharon, Mary, and Gwen have traveled the same rough roads. Join them as they share the life lessons that have helped them discover the peace and joy that comes from trusting God. 

My book is already filled with underlines and dog-eared pages. Trusting God, is one book that will be read and reread, shared with others, and lovingly pondered for years.

Trusting God is written in a devotion format that could be used for daily or as a group study. Questions are at the end of each chapter for reflection and encouragement. Order Trusting God for yourself and everyone you know. These beautiful Girlfriends in God will touch and abundantly bless your life with each story and word written.
