Weekend Wisdom: Encounter

Devotion #8 in The Greatest Gift, Unwrapping The Full Love Story of Christmas really spoke to me this year. It even more highlighted and marked up than before.

This is one of the sentences that jumped off the page at me.

God doesn’t want to number your failures or count your accomplishments as much as He wants you to have an encounter with Him.

Ann Voskamp – The Greatest Gift, Unwrapping The Full Love Story of Christmas – December 8th devotion.

Be willing to encounter God this holiday and see how much joy it brings you – then go scatter that joy to other people!
