My gift to you is: Change
From Luke 1:16 - And he [John the Baptist] will turn many of the sons of Israel back to the Lord their God.
I know the thoughts of your heart, my child. I know the condition of your spirit. I know everything about you. I know what you long for. If you want change in your life, then you must change deep in your heart for all the issues of life begin from the heart. Do you seek change? This year, I am giving you the gift of change, the power to change things in your life that you have not been able to change until now. Sometimes I give a miracle change. I can create a change in you in a single moment that would have taken years to naturally occur. Begin with believing and that will release the change.
Under your covenant of grace, you can come before me, as you are, with all of your flaws and shortcomings and see your answer come to you. That is the seed of belief. Knowing that you have been granted your answer, not based on any merit at all from you, but totally, and only, by my grace and my love for you. If it takes time, it is because I have chosen the time in which you are to receive and that time is for a purpose. During that time discover my purpose for the delay, and do not doubt that you have received. Worry, fear, and doubt resist the work I need to do in you to open the way for the answer. Don’t be distracted by the time and process between your asking and your receiving. Only come to me and believe that change is possible and then begin to walk it out and it will be yours. It is yours. I love you so much. I will give you so much, even in the here and now. You can change! And you will.
What area of change do you need to experience in order to grow forward in your life?

An excerpt from "The Twenty Five Gifts of Christmas;
25 Daily Conversations with Jesus"
A daily devotional for December 1st through the 25th
These twenty five daily devotionals are written in first person from Jesus to you revealing twenty five gifts coming from His heart to your heart this Christmas season.
This devotional comes with a companion book: “Twelve Miracles of Christmas”. As a gift for becoming a Member of the Grace Becomes You community, we have included a download of the "Twelve Miracles of Christmas" book here. On December 25th, at the end of the series, we will make available to you all of the gifts in e-book form as well as the “Twelve Miracles of Christmas”.
The Christmas season is so busy with holiday activities on top of regular jobs, family and household duties. It is so easy for the real reason for the season to get lost in the frenzy. If your devotional life takes a dive during the holidays, fret not! Jesus has a personal word for you that will make this Christmas season spiritually vibrant.
These daily, three minute devotional readings are based on the events that took place in the lives of people around Jesus at the time of His conception and birth; Mary, Joseph, Zacharias and Elizabeth. Through these simple readings, new light springs forth from common words revealing powerful truths that will release the power of Jesus’ birth into your family, business, and your whole life all year long.
Never has one event had so much impact on the nature of man and the course of human events, from individual lives to whole of societal structures. Never has one event rewritten the lives and times of so many people on our planet. Are there personal truths just for you, hidden in these familiar passages, that could release the same earth shaking, life changing power of Jesus’ birth into your life? I believe the answer is a resounding "YES"!
Each of these twenty five personal messages reveals twenty five “gifts” Jesus is giving you. Each message is from a verse and the word that stood out to me as I prayed for you, which I have highlighted in bold. In just a few minutes a day for the next twenty five days, you can receive His gifts and release the power of Christmas to live a new, Holy Spirit powered life all year long.
Come now on a personal journey with just you and Jesus. Discover new intimacy with Him in these twenty five daily conversations leading up to Christmas. Each one is written in first person tense, as a personal message to you from Jesus. If seen with the eye of the heart, and acted upon, the twenty five gifts will release His power into your life.
