When Empty Is Full
"May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children. May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us--yes, establish the work of our hands."
Jennifer's prayer: "Lord, make my life your theater--a stage upon which You perform. Through my life may Your splendor be shown to my descendants."~Jennifer Kennedy Dean
My prayer: Lord, today is the day we celebrate the incredible work of Your hands, of Your Spirit so long ago--the birth of our precious Lord Jesus. You have shown us incredible deeds, O Father, You have made known Your splendor to us and to our children. How we thank You and give You praise for this marvelous work.
As the work of Your hands was so incredibly made known through the circumstances of our Lord's birth, may the work of our hands be established. Let us build our work, our lives, our faith upon You, upon the Solid Rock, of which there is utter and total faithfulness, not even a shadow of turning.
Because the manger and the cross were filled and then emptied, our hearts are filled to overflowing with the knowledge that our salvation was accomplished through them.
Please fill all of my descendants with Your unspeakable gift, your Son, Jesus Christ. Humbly we thank You for what our hearts embrace today.
If you don't have time for anything else this Christmas, I pray that you will watch this really short video written, acted and produced by children. You will not be disappointed.
From our house to yours, the very merriest of Christmases!
2010-the Year of Longings
I long to be emptied of me and full of You.
