Good came down at Christmas


God is good to one and all;
    everything he does is soaked through with grace.

Psalm 145:9 (MSG)

A CHRISTMAS PRAYER

Thank you, Father, for your grace,
Shown to me in countless ways—

Favor, truly undeserved,
Full acceptance, unreserved;

Forgiveness, free and complete,
Though, my errors, I still repeat;

Your help in every trouble,
Your mercy when I stumble.

With a heart of gratitude,
I worship you. You are good—

God of Truth and God of Love,
God, who came down from above;

And, in Jesus, bared your heart,
From you, Lord, I won’t depart.

When I’m tempted here below,
Spirit, help me keep this vow

Faithfully, until the end,
Until the day, I ascend;

That when I see you face to face
There’ll be no shame to erase.

God, sustain me by your grace;
Make me good in all my ways.

God is for us no-matter-what

The righteous person faces many troubles,
    but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.
Psalm 34:19 (NLT)

God is for us no-matter-what

When hard things put you on pause,
View your blessings, not your loss.
It may not be due to flaws;
Listen and you’ll know the cause.

God is for you no-matter-what.
Don’t let your heart dwell on doubt;
If you do, you’ll suffer drought.
Rise each morning with a shout.

Compose a song of gratitude;
It will improve your attitude,
Help you escape an ugly mode,
Activate your giving code.

God is for you no-matter-what.
Don’t let your heart dwell on doubt;
If you do, you’ll suffer drought.
Rise each morning with a shout 

At Christmas time, remember this — 
It’s a time to give and to bless.
Even if your life’s a mess,
There are others who have less.

God is for them, as well as you.
By what you say and what you do,
Help them know this is true.
Truth and righteousness pursue.

God is for us no-matter-what.
Let’s not allow our hearts to doubt;
If we do, we’ll suffer drought.
Rise each morning with a shout!
