Merry Christmas. I love this time of year because Christmas is such amazing and beautiful holiday. I wish I could see a little snow but living in Vegas that rarely happens. I just wanted to share a very short video message to wish you a very Merry Christmas. Also maybe a few of my favorite songs. I know each of us have our own beliefs and our dreams and visions for the future. I know that my family is excited for the coming of the New Year. Launching our diaper changing baby product and Huggies Grant Winner the SnuggWugg®, coaching the many women that I have the honor of sharing my tips and strategies to help them live a more prosperous life, and all of my businesses in general.
But I have to share that the greatest gift I’ve ever been given. That gift is Jesus. When I look back at my life, the pains I’ve been through, rejection from both of my father’s. One an abusive drunk, the other alive yet wanting nothing to do with me. The bad relationships I’ve survived, all the years I’ve spent on the road as a singer, the many times I’ve cried over years past due to a broken heart or a seemingly shattered dream, I know that if it were not for Jesus I never would have made it. Do you know that He came to this world for one reason? He came for YOU.
Many times I think of that myself. The creator of the universe came to earth in the form of a tiny baby to sacrifice Himself and pay the price for all my mistakes so that I would not have to. I have to tell you that that gives me the greatest joy, the strongest hope I’ve ever had in my life.
Jesus is the only reason that I have a loving husband, a business that is successful and will continue to be, a daughter who will never cry as I did when I was a little girl because my dad was cruel. No I’ve given my daughter Matilda a hope and a future. And that future is bright. Many of you who follow me one of the things you say you love about me the most is how I inspire and encourage you. The reason I’m able to do that is because He lives in me. And it’s the presence of God that shows me every day it’s not about me but it’s about Him. So when I’m helping you it’s never because I think I’m so smart, it’s not because I want to be famous,(I laid that dream down long ago), it’s because the presence of God and my savior Jesus live large in me.
You see I know when you speak the name of Jesus it angers so many. I’ve had hundreds of atheists hate me and say some pretty awful things, I have people call my hypocrite, tell me I think I’m better then others. I don’t think that at all. It’s just that I know that the name of Jesus can break you free from any bondage, any pain, any heartbreak, any disappointment that you’ve ever faced. I know this because He’s done that for me. I cannot celebrate Christmas without celebrating the one who has lit my heart forever. Jesus. How I love HIM.
So if you don’t know Him you can write me via this blog and I’ll share HIM with you, if you do know HIM then I celebrate HIM with you, and if you hate HIM, that’s OK because He still loves you.
He’s been too good to me to call HIM a “good teacher” a “good man” ” a profit”. No I know that He is the Son of God. And I know that the price He paid for me is greater then I’ll ever understand. So when people watch these videos and they think images are too graphic I look at them and know He did that all for ME. And He Did it for you. But the best part, He is no longer is on a cross but alive and waiting to meet you.
The story of a baby born in a manger is truly the greatest story ever told.
Merry Christmas. Enjoy your time with those you love it goes by so very fast.
From my family to yours I pray you have the most wonderful time this year.
