O come all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant.
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of angels.
The Star shone, the angels sang to announce the Father’s Gift of Me to you.
As you open your gifts one to another today, do so in Remembrance of Me. You would not leave a gift unopened, or bury it under the tree for some other year. You would not refuse to take a gift placed in your hands…
In the same way, do not hesitate to take ALL that is My Blessing… to open your hands and receive… I have come that you might have life, and life abundantly.
I stretch out My hands to pour into yours. My favor and anointing. Blessing on the work of your hands. Strength and renewed youth, like the eagle’s. Restoration and open windows of Heaven. I want to bless you and in so doing, to make you a blessing to others…to fill your mouth with praise and your spirit with true worship.
Come and behold Me… the Great I Am.
The angels join in song as My Spirit leans in to hear your answer.
Will you make the choice to receive?
Show me Lord, if I am holding back from receiving blessings from your hand…

This is the 17th post in my December Christmas House Calendar theme… similar to an Advent Calendar where you “open a door” to receive a message. In this case, one born of prayer and whispers from our “not so secret admirer.” Mark your calendar to come back here often this month for more “secret messages!”
Missed the introduction to this Christmas House Calendar Theme? If you’d like to catch up or read any of the posts for this entire month, you’ll find them here:
