No matter how tight the budget, there are just certain things a woman with naturally curly hair can’t go without. One of those things is a good conditioner. Because of that, I have used a particular Aveda product for years. Recently, I went to restock and the sales woman asked me, “Do you use this a lot? What is it you like about it?” It took me a minute to collect my thoughts. I had never really thought about it. It works well with my hair so I just keep using it. As I began to explain all of that, I stopped mid sentence and said, “I like it because it does what it says it will do!”
For this is what the LORD says— he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited—he says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other. Isaiah 45:18
Has someone ever asked you about your faith, how it’s so strong, why you believe in something you can’t see or touch? Did it take you a minute to collect your thoughts and put into words what your faith is. How it exists and what it’s made of? Just for a moment, take a minute to reflect on these questions and your answer. As we begin 2012 I pray we will all be ready to share our faith and be a light in this world.
Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, LORD. Psalm 89:15
God does what He says He will do. His promises have been kept for centuries. His faithfulness never broken. Believe this with your whole heart as we end another Christmas season and start a new year.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
