Life - it's not perfect... it's better!
When I laugh, I laugh hard and everyone around hears me (my family is shaking their heads right now as they are reading this). When I sing, I sing with every part of my spirit, soul and body.
When I dance, well... let's just say, I do it because I love the Lord and not because I am very good at it, but regardless, I do it with all my passion.
As you can see in this picture, I am just like my parents, Apostles Craig and Colette. Yeah, as you all know, we work hard, we release books into the body of Christ, we are constantly standing proxy for the church universal, we are equipping God’s leaders, and much more.
However, just as hard as we run in work, we run the same speed in having fun and loving and spending time with each other.
The Lord really does intend on giving each one of us the most precious and valuable gifts in our lives. He truly withholds no good thing from us and I can say this because this year, on top of all the family and other gifts that He has continually given me, He has now also given me my very own personal "good thing".
As many of you already know, I got married to Chaifa just this past October. So, while I was already enjoying the gifts that the Lord has given me, I was also given the opportunity and privilege to stand proudly by the side of a passionate, powerful yet gentle, and amazing woman.
As passionate as I am, I have found someone who is equally, if not even more passionate than me at times. The Lord uncovered a treasure that was hidden away just for me that I might have the greatest gift to help me in this life.
This is the first year that I get to do all the things that I love, while feeling complete alongside my other half. I get to laugh hard, sing hard, love hard, and work hard, with someone that stands beside me doing the same.
I get to experience the breeze of the air as never before, because someone sits beside me and makes everything so much better.
So, why am I carrying on about all these awesome things in my life? Because it is Christmas season and let us never forget that this is a time to be thankful and to praise the Lord for everything that He has done!
Whatever you do this Christmas, please make sure that you take time to do it with all of your heart. Love hard, play hard, sing hard, dance hard, and cry hard. Thank God for every gift that He has given you because whether you realize it or not, God has not withheld any good thing from you.
There are treasures lying all around you that you have yet to take time and see. Take a look right now. See through the eyes of the Holy Spirit and allow Him to open your eyes to see the amazing things and people that He has placed into your life.
No matter what storms you have faced or are facing, there is something good to see and to be grateful for. There is something RIGHT NOW that is right in front of you that you should be dancing, jumping, and praising God about.
May you find those things and be overly filled with love, passion, joy, and thanksgiving during this amazing season of thanks to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
In His Love and Grace,
