Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Relationship with.... God?!

"It's a mind-blowing concept that the God who created the Universe might be looking for company, a real relationship with people, but the thing that keeps me on my knees is the difference between Grace and Karma."
"You see, at the center of all religions is the idea of Karma. You know, what you put out comes back to you: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, or in physics - in physical laws - every action is met by an equal or an opposite one. It's clear to me that Karma is at the very heart of the Universe. I'm absolutely sure of it. And yet, along comes this idea called Grace to upend all that 'As you reap, so will you sow' stuff. Grace defies reason and logic. Love interrupts, if you like, the consequences of your actions, which in my case is very good news indeed, because I've done a lot of stupid stuff"

(quote from BONO - U2)

To me, Christmas is the evidence that God wants a relationship with us people so bad.
We mess up everything He created (the world, nature or our own bodies), we deny Him, don't recognise Him, mock Him...
His the Most High King Who is offering an eternal life with Him, a life based on Love - His love for us - and a life based on His acceptance.
As a Mighty creator, He could've easily make us love Him, but He wants voluntary love.
So He came down to this earth and reached out to win our hearts.... to win my heart... to win your heart.

As Julie Miller sang: "How could you say no to this man"
