I am a homeless person, of sorts. Not in the sense that I don’t have a roof over my head or people who love me. I’m homeless in the sense that while I’ve called numerous places on this planet “home,” none are places I go back to as one would go “back home.” By the time I was forty, I had called five very different geographic locations “home,” and the place I live now has never truly felt like home.
I just finished listening to the book of Job in the New Living Translation. Every few years, I like to read through the Bible in chronological order to retain the big picture view of its storyline and overall message, which is our redemption through Jesus. This year, I’m listening to it instead of reading it, using The One Year Chronological Bible NLT Audible Audiobook. I’ve also gotten the Kindle version for days when reading is more convenient.
Now, back to Job.
Christmas has come and gone. Gifts were given and received. Some of those gifts are still being enjoyed while others have been shoved in a corner and forgotten. Eventually, all earthly gifts lose their value in one way or another.
But there’s one Christmas gift that will never lose its value and will become more precious to us day after day and year after year.
What’s true about you is what God says about you. Created by God on purpose for a purpose! My identity is in Jesus Christ! How about yours?Lucas Black
This post is a little different, a little fun, and hopefully at least a little bit helpful. I’m going to share with you a few of my most favorite purchases this year. You may decide you want or need some of these items, too, or perhaps you’re still frantically looking for that perfect gift for someone on your Christmas gift list. If you have Amazon Prime, you still have time to order gifts and get them in time for Christmas!
