This Christmas Season...

Mighty Christmas

When you say Merry Christmas, what do you think the word Merry means? My whole life Merry Christmas, simply meant, “Hey, happy Christmas to you.” But, what if merry didn’t mean happy?
Think about it. Remember Robin Hood and his Merry Men? It wasn’t Robin Hood and his happy-go-lucky cheerful men joyfully jumping up and down in tights. No, in the old English, merry meant mighty or powerful!
I don’t often quote my own song lyrics, but these are about as sisynced as I can be:

What if all of this were true
Emmanuel, how God came through
Is this more than Christmas cheer
Is this just a story or what if it’s real

Would I still be lonely would I know fear
Would my worry hold me, could I be healed
I’m crying out loud

This year like never before
Jesus reveal a little more
To my soul would you
Show me just how powerful
You are more than a manger
Jesus the mighty savior
In my soul turn this
Merry into Mighty Christmas


What if in my silent nights
You were enough, You were the light
Angels saying “Do not Fear”
Is that still a promise, do You still come near?

Meet me in my lonely, tear down my fear
Hold me through my worry, Lord would you Heal

This year like never before
Jesus reveal a little more
To my soul would you
Show me just how powerful
You are more than a manger
Jesus the mighty savior
In my soul turn this
Merry into Mighty Christmas


Whatever you are dealing with this Christmas season, remember, this is either a Happy-go-lucky safe and boring Christmas or this is a powerful and Mighty Christmas where Jesus, Emmanuel, God is With Us.
