Read Matthew 1:18- 25 (New Living) “Take time with Me.  The reason for different translations is to read different ways of interpreting the same story.  Sit down with Me in the living room at Christmas Mountain.” “The story of Mary and Joseph is a love story.  Joseph did not know how to react to what Mary had been told by the Angel Gabriel.  One heard directly God’s voice, the other did not.  It was not until Joseph had his own encounter that he was able to be at peace.”

Daily Word - Cover me!

In extreme situations in combat a soldier who leaves a secure position to advance on the enemy will ask his buddies to ‘cover me!’ Perhaps you have never been in such extreme conditions, but could the same concept still apply? Has anyone ever covered for you in an awkward or embarrassing situation, helping you to a place of safety by not passing on damaging information? Perhaps you have done the same for others. Did you find a sense of satisfaction in ‘having their back’?  Even in situations not as severe as combat the same terms are used for the same concepts. Love covers a multitude of sins.

Read LUKE 1:1-22 (NEW KING JAMES) Focus on Luke 1:13-14 “Do not be afraid…for your prayer is heard…and you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice…” “My Child, I see that you’ve had a stressful time lately.  Remember, this is about relationship. This is about spending time with Me and hearing My heart for you.”

Daily Word - a game?

Do you see life as a game? It is often portrayed that way, with the goal of getting ahead. Some people have advantages and are ‘winning’, although in this game no one really wins. Grace changes the rules so that everyone can win. Have you noticed that not many noble are called to the kingdom? Who wants to change the rules of the game while they are winning? I send the sun and the rain on everyone, the wicked and the just alike. Do you see the abundance of your life as a gift from me? When riches increase don’t set your heart upon them. Don’t let your blessings keep you from grace.

Read Luke 1:46-55  NEW CENTURY VERSION “Son, I love you.  Today, I am looking with you at the Song of Mary, and looking at the words ‘He has filled the hungry with good things’.  It is My desire and heart that you eat good things.  It is my desire that you be lifted up from a low place.”

Daily Word - If I loved everyone

What if I loved everyone? What would I expect from my followers? I would make it easy for them, and make my kingdom accessible for everyone, particularly the poor. I wouldn’t require special garments that not everyone could afford. I wouldn’t require a pilgrimage to some location that was too far away for some people. I would ordain rituals that involved common ordinary materials like water, food and drink. I would structure a faith that could be practiced by anyone, anywhere. My kingdom is not of this world, but the faith I established can be followed by everyone in the world. If I loved everyone I would found the Christian faith.

Read Matthew 1:1-25 “Son, it has been awhile.  Come to My heart.  Leave your daily concerns and come away with My Holy Spirit and come and visit Christmas Mountain.  Walk again through the gates of Christmas Mountain.  Come, come to My house, where we will spend time together.  I will be with you; I will bless you.” “We will be together. We will rest. Come, into My house.  Have a cup of warm, hot chocolate. Find rest and comfort for your wounded soul.”

Daily Word - divine wine

Do you remember my first miracle? I turned water into wine at a wedding. My mom wanted me to do this but I said that my time was not yet come, and I did the miracle in secret. Only the servants who filled the water pots and a handful of others were aware of what happened. The master of the banquet was surprised that the best wine was saved for last. In particular  the guests at the wedding, for whom the miracle was performed since they drank the wine, had no idea where it came from. How many miracles have I performed for you that you are unaware of? How long have you been drinking divine wine?

Read MATTHEW 1:18-25 (NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION) “Come to Christmas Mountain, again and again. Yes, be encouraged that Christmas Mountain is also ‘Father Christmas Mountain’.  I am Father Christmas, My Child.  I want you to enter into a place of healing and belonging where you are always welcome and always accepted.  It is time for fear to become something that belongs in the past; not your present. Love will overcome the fear that you have felt in your life.”
