Let me store up
in my heart, Lord

all these things
You do

so they can be
a treasure

the whole
year through.


“But Mary treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:19 NIV

“Then He returned to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them, and His mother stored all these things in her heart.” Luke 2:51 NLT

Making A Way


Jesus is
now with us

so Christmas
never ends

doing a new thing

making a way
in the wastelands.


“. . . my eyes have seen Your salvation which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, a light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.” Luke 2:30-32 NKJV

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV

stay in their fields

when they heard

but went to find
the Baby

and tell others
what they knew.

Let It Be To Me


Oh Lord help me
say ‘yes’ to You

and not

for though it won’t
be easy

You’ll be with me
all the way.


“Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to Your word.”
Luke 1:38

It’s not about
how important we are

or well known
and liked

but about God’s
Holy Spirit

our lives.


“Then Mary said to the angel, ‘How can this be, since I do not know a man?'”

“And the angel answered and said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.’ “

“For with God nothing will be impossible.”

Luke 1:34,35,37. NKJV

And He Spoke


each of us

a God placed dream
is there

that at His
appointed time

Kingdom purposes
it will bear.


“Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed and he spoke, praising God.”

“Then fear came on all who dwelt around them; and all these sayings were discussed throughout all the hill country of Judea.”

“And all who heard them kept them in their hearts, saying, ‘What kind of child will this be?’ And the hand of the Lord was with him.”

Luke 1:64,65,66. NKJV

All this was done
that it might be fulfilled

which was spoken
long ago

so we may know
the certainty

of those things
we’ve been told.


“. . .that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed.” Luke 1:4

“So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: ‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, ‘God with us.’ “. Matthew 1:22,23
