Luke 2:40 (NIV) And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.
Thank you, Lord, for Christmas. And thank you Lord for not staying an infant, nor letting me stay a baby Christian. I want to be strong and wise. Help me celebrate your birth every day of my life by growing up, by becoming all that I can be in your kingdom. Growing up, changing, becoming stronger isn’t always fun or easy. Sometimes, it’s even painful, but we can do it, God will help. Amen!
