Advent 2018 Day 21

We are continuing the Gospel of Christ for Advent:

Romans 8:31,33

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?…Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

Isaiah 53:10-12

Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him;
    he has put him to grief;
when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
    he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
    make many to be accounted righteous,
    and he shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
    and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because he poured out his soul to death
    and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet he bore the sin of many,
    and makes intercession for the transgressors.

He bore my sin and yours and is now interceding with the Father on our behalf.

This is the last part of the kit, “Holly Jolly!”

Advent 2018 Day 20

May God’s Word speak to your heart today:

Romans 8:30

And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

Revelation 11:15b

“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”

Revelation 19:11-13

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.  His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God.

Colossians 3:4

 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory

Revelation 22:1, 3-5

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb…No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him.  They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.  And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.


Here is today’s Advent Gift.  I hope you are enjoying “Holly Jolly.”


Have a blessed Advent!


Advent 2018 Day 19

Do you have such a personal relationship with God that you can call Him, “Abba, Father?”

Do you call Jesus your Christ, your Lord?
Today’s Advent reading reminded me of Matthew 1:21:

“She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”

and now for today’s Bible reading:

Romans 8:15

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

Philippians 2:9-11

Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,  so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

EVERY knee should bow… I pray that none of you are found bowing and confessing when it is too late.

Here is today’s Advent Gift:



Advent 2018 Day 18

After Christ arose from the grave, He took His seat at the Father’s right hand. He advocates for those of us who are His heirs, and has a promise for us:

1 John 2:1b

We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

Colossians 3:1

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

Ephesians 2:6-7

and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,  so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Praise the Lord, Our Savior!

For today’s Advent gift, I have the next part of the Holly Jolly Kit.  I hope you are enjoying it:


Have a blessed Advent Season!



Advent 2018 Day 17

1 Corinthians 15:5a

He appeared…

John 20:29b

“…Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

Acts 1:9

And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.

Romans 8:34

Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Here is the next part of Holly Jolly:Thumb03

Have a blessed, Happy, Scrappy Christmas!



Advent 2018 Day 16

Praying that all come to belief in Christ:

John 20:16b


John 20:25

So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”

1 Corinthians 15:3b

Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures.

John 20:26b

“Peace be with you.”

1 Corinthians 15:4a

Was buried…

John 20:27b

“Do not disbelieve, but believe.”

1 Corinthians 15:4b

Was raised in accordance with Scripture

John 20:28b

“My Lord and my God!”

For today’s Advent Gift is the second submission to the kit, “Holly Jolly.”  I hope you enjoy it!


I am praying you have a blessed, happy, scrappy Christmas!


Advent 2018 Day 15 and My Memories Blog Train

For today’s Advent reading, we are continuing with the Resurrection in the Gospel of Christ:

John 20:15

Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”

Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

John 20:16a

Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

Romans 8:35, 38-39

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Father, help us to really SEE Christ.  Encourage us through times of tribulation, distress, and persecution, times when we are in need of food and clothing, times we are in danger, that your love is with us.  Remind us none of this will separate us from Your love in Christ Jesus, our Lord.  Amen

Advent 2018 Day 14

I am praying that God uses this Advent season to open hearts and minds to His Truth as we continue sharing the Gospel:

Mark 16:6

And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.

Ephesians 2:1,4-5

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins… But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved

Romans 6:8

 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.

Advent 2018 Day 13

Today’s Advent Gospel Reading:

2 Corinthians 5:21

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Romans 5:6, 8-10

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly…. but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.  For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.

Matthew 27:59-60

And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away.

Isaiah 53:9

And they made his grave with the wicked
    and with a rich man in his death,
although he had done no violence,
    and there was no deceit in his mouth.

Colossians 3:3

For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Stay tuned, because the third day is coming…
