God with Us

We’re halfway through March and I have shared just one little glimpse of Christmas with you. So today, I’d like to share one of my favorite Christmas tunes. “Emmanuel.” I believe I would love any song with this word in it because of what it means. God with us.


The disciples had the Messiah in their midst. They walked and talked with Jesus. They ate with Jesus. They listened to Jesus. They knew Jesus. What a time they must have had.


But Jesus told His disciples that they would be better off when He left. Why? Because God would place His Spirit within each believer. From that point forward, anyone who accepted Jesus as their Savior would receive this gift and would have God with them.


So Emmanuel is such a blessed word for us. God is with us.


Enjoy this beautiful song today. Lift your voice and praise God who is with you!


“Emmanuel” – Musical Musings in March


One more Christmas tune…Christmas music is perhaps my all-time favorite music because of the hope and joy it brings to my heart.


Within the past few years, this song, “Emmanuel” has quickly become one of my favorite Christmas songs. Yes it speaks of Emmanuel and how God sent Jesus to be with us, but it goes one step further.


This song says that Jesus is with me. Personally with me. And what that actually means in my life. There is no more loneliness. There is no more heartache. There is no more brokenness. Because of Emmanuel.


When we allow Emmanuel to be part of our lives, our day-to-day lives, we have all that He has to offer all the time. What a wonderful gift God gave mankind, no, what God gave to me on that first Christmas. Emmanuel.


So here are the words and a link to the video sung by Anthony Evans. I pray you’ll receive a blessing from “Emmanuel.”


No decorations
No tree with tinsel, no light this year at home
The rooms are silent, no carols playing

For the first time she’s all alone

But what a wonder, she says there’s comfort

Emmanuel our God is with us, yes he’s with us still
Emmanuel he has not left us and he never will

They maybe next door
Maybe the next row

But there’s someone with a heartache

They face the season, the happy greetings with no joy in this holiday

For all the broken, here in this moment

Emmanuel our God is with us, yes he’s with us still
Emmanuel he has not left us and he never will
He never will
He never will[i]

“All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’—which means, ‘God with us.’” (Matthew 1:22-23 – NIV)


Today God offers His presence to anyone who is willing to accept Jesus as their personal Savior. If you want to make this decision, please feel free to contact me or find someone who can point you in the right direction. God cannot wait to be in your presence. Maybe it’s time for you to get excited about being in His.


As you go through your day today, remember that God is with you. He is always with you (Matthew 28:20b). He will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). He loves you (1 John 4:9-11).


So today I say, Merry Christmas! God is with us!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,



[i] Emmanuel, Anthony Evans, Composed by Tony Woods and Chad Cates, 2009
