Christmas Eve Thoughts

It was 40 years ago this last October that I became a Christian. I remember that Christmas Eve and how it was different than any of the others I had experienced. It was now a personal thing; I understood in  a completely new way. Jesus  was real and I had a growing relationship with him.

I am so thankful for the change in direction my life took that year. I had been on a fast slide into things that were messing up my short life and had the promise to make things much worse. Heroin was just around the corner.

 Life has still been hard but in my powerlessness I am discovering help. This verse is true: And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 2Corinthians 12:9
