Day Twenty Five: #lighttheworld

Today marks day twenty five of #lighttheworld. "Jesus’s Disciples Followed Him and So Can We"

When the Savior was born, a new light appeared in the heavens. He is the Light of the World not just on Christmas Day, but every day. Follow Him, and never walk in darkness again.

Today's scripture reference is found in Luke 9:23 and it reads the following; “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”
I would like to share with you a video above about why we need a Savior and I know it is a very inspiring video. I encourage you to watch the video in your own time. If you can not see the video, here's the link to the video below. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly7c9scxB9I

Today is Christmas Day. I encourage you to think about and seeking answers to the following questions;
"Why do you celebrate Christmas?" "If you do not celebrate Christmas, what do you celebrate instead?"
"Do you celebrate Christmas?" "If you do celebrate Christmas, how do you celebrate Christmas?"

"Do you celebrate Christmas with your family and extended relatives?"
"Do you celebrate Christmas with your friends?"

"Do you remember the birth of Jesus Christ during Christmas season?"
"Do you think about all the presents that you receive on Christmas Day?"

"What does Christmas truly means to you?" "What does Christmas means to your extended relatives?"
"What does Christmas means to your immediate relatives?" "What does Christmas means to your friends?"

"What does Christmas means to your neighbours?" "What does Christmas means to your neighbours' relatives?"

In the world today, there are many people who are celebrating Christmas with their relatives and extended relatives. In the world today, there are some people who are celebrating Christmas alone. there are some people who does not celebrate Christmas.

I know we all can become like Jesus Christ if we choose to follow him. I know when we all choose to become like him, we will feel blessed and I know we will be able to acknowledge ourselves of how much he has done for us. He set continuous great examples. I know we can follow his examples and when we follow his examples, we can share it to others the happiness of the gospel that brings into our daily lives.

It may be hard at times to follow Jesus Christ's examples and that is okay. I know we all can choose to become a light to the world especially to the non-believers. I would like to you to watch the video in your own time.

Merry Christmas to everyone, safe travels if you are traveling on this Christmas Day. Please remember the true meaning of Christmas during this Christmas season. I hope you will have a great day.

Stay Tuned until next time.

Day Twenty Four: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks twenty four of #lighttheworld. My goodness, is it really Christmas Day tomorrow? Can you believe it?

"Jesus Cared for His Loved Ones and So Can You"

Some of the most touching moments of Jesus Christ’s ministry involved His family and close friends. This Christmas, we can honor the birth of Jesus Christ by following His loving example of serving those who matter most in our lives.

Today's scripture is found in John 11:5-6 and it reads the following;

“5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.”

I do not know if the Image that I have shared goes well if this post or not. If you can not see the Image below, it says "Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day ... unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear."

Well I actually did two Christ-like services last night, so a night early. Oops. So last night, I visited a close friend who I have not seen for awhile and I thought to have a quick catch up with her. I ended up being with that friend for almost two hours and half. It was really good because it has been a few weeks since I last saw her. While visiting her, I gave her a card and mentions a lot about me and her. I know it really cheered her up.

Another one was visiting my next door neighbour, I ordered a late dessert meal, dinner and drink for her, me and my two younger siblings to share. It was good because I know when people are less fortune than I am, really appreciate unexpected surprises and always good to know that I felt good by doing that for her.

Stay Tuned until next time.

Day Twenty Three: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day twenty three of #lighttheworld. "Jesus was a Peacemaker and You Can Be One Too"

During the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ taught that peacemakers are called the children of God. We can earn that blessed title when we reach out to others in the spirit of forgiveness, reconciliation, and resolution.

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 5:9 and it reads the following;
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
I have shared an Image above and if you can not see it, it says "Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS."

My goodness, my evening was interesting. I would like to share with you one experience that happened tonight and it relates to this post's topic.

While I was working, I noticed my manager was not happy with a customer, he was getting frustrated and he was angry. I know how he felt. I must admit, at first, I did not know what to do because I was not able to find a quiet place to kneel down in prayer to ask forgiveness and soften his heart to change to become happy again.

So during my driving time to delivery to someone's order to their house, I was able to express to Heavenly Father how I felt, ask about forgiveness and change his heart. When I arrived back to one of the stores where I work at, I smiled and showed that I was very happy. I noticed my manager seemed happy again and he was grateful after dealing with that customer.

There is a saying that I like and that is "At times, we do fall short. At times, we do get frustrated at things even the little things. By the end of the day, we can always overcome those times in life by learning and acknowledging what we can do better next time when it happens again."
