Today’s Blog by Yvonne
Bah, Humbug. I am sure this blog is not what you thought it might be even if we are approaching the Christmas season.
I love the movie, Scrooge. It is one of my favorites, and I try to see it every Christmas season. It gives me a warm, happy feeling to watch it. The movie puts me in the holiday spirit whenever I watch it. One thing I noticed is how much the movie reminds me of my Christian walk. Like the movie, my life was a mess until I met a ghost only in my case it was the Holy Ghost I met and He changed me.
Recently at my church, my pastor talked about Ebenezer. He explained that Ebenezer is an item in the bible but not a person. The meaning of the word Ebenezer is “stone of help.” The stones were a memorial set up by Samuel to commemorate the divine assistance He gave to Israel in their great battle against the Philistines, as shown in verse above. The pastor then challenged us to find the Ebenezer in our life to remind us how the Lord has helped us this far in our lives.
I went home and pondered this request. I thought how much I loved seeing wildlife, especially Hawks. The Lord then spoke to my heart and revealed how the Hawks I loved to watch could be my Ebenezer. Each time I saw one in the wild, it would remind me to thank God for keeping me safe so far. Seeing the Hawks as my Ebenezer has been such a blessing because it always reminds me to praise God. I challenge each of you to find an Ebenezer and watch how the Lord blesses your life.
May the Lord Bless you and keep.
