This year, I am again loving the leading of a favorite Christmas song of mine.. It is 'COME ON RING THOSE BELLS' which goes on to say, "Light the Christmas tree! Jesus is the KING, born for you and me! Come on ring those bells, everybody say, 'JESUS WE REMEMBER THIS YOUR BIRTHDAY!'                            As I convey these lyrics to you, I am also thinking of the movie, THE POLAR EXPRES which seemed to assume one must 'believe in order to hear' the bell ring. I don't know about any of you, but I have come to realize it is JESUS who is the 'jingle' in my bell, and that I believe because I hear, not, vice versa! This believing takes the form of TRUSTING my Lord so I can thrive! I also thrive because I know it's not a matter of how many years I live, but of the quality of life I have in them. Welcoming the Lord's attention to, and intentions towards me as I seek to glorify Him, succeed in confirming my hearing of my Lord. The bottom line is there is no doubt whatsoever in my soul about the TRUE REALITY OF THE LORD'S EXISTENCE! Consequently, I BELIEVE because I HEAR. I pray you will all be able to identify with what I've shared.   Perhaps an altered version of the song I opened with could be sung as, COME ON HEAR THOSE BELLS,  let the LORD WITHIN, LEAD YOU IN HIS LOVE FLOWING FROM ABOVE... etc..! (You can let HIM write the rest for your life!)
