I am being refined as I keep God and all God’s good on my mind. I do not wander away. I still myself and listen to what God has to say. So there is nothing to get ready for, I am prepared, I am aware. There is nothing I need to do of my own accord to make this Love of God my truth, but allow it to be, allow God’s Love to wash over and through me. And with this Holy Water, I am refreshed, made anew. The joy that was promised becomes me and floods my being with peace.
I am coming to think that the word “pagan” in today’s terms would be equal to the idea of the “worldly.”
Pagan :Anything that is not God begot, that one gives reverence too.
Well, if that is so then most of the traditions we so solemnly keep as our Christmas theme, are actually pagan concepts that we have bought into, as what we are to think, to believe.
Yes, the world tells you what to do but really it is a bunch of hullabaloo. In worldly terms, the whole idea of inviting God’s Love into one’s heart, the true intent of Christmas has become taboo.
The world plays upon the idea of the “Christmas present” as something one must purchase or do, to be “in the spirit” of things. But the true spirit of Christmas is above and beyond all that. It is not about going there or doing that. It is about stillness in fact. It is about the silent night, the holy night, and a star so bright. It is about wishing upon that star with all your might that the Savior may be born unto your heart. That is why every heart must prepare Him room. That is the Christmas preparations all must do.
