My gift to you is: A Leaping
Based on Luke 1:41 - When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
My gift to you today, as we near Christmas day, is a leap! Come close to me. Do not fear! I am kind and loving toward you. I want you to have the same joy I have when I hear the sound of your voice. When I hear your voice, my spirit leaps with joy. All of heaven leaps with joy when one of my children accepts my love and forgiveness. I leap with joy at the sound of your voice when you greet me, praise me, worship me. I want you to experience the same joy and love in your spirit when you hear my voice. Some call this an inner witness. Some call it an inner knowing. But I am telling you the Holy Spirit leaps with joy when we connect. We are one. We love each other. We are inseparable. We leap with joy with each other, and I so want you experience the leap of joy. When the Holy Spirit leaps with joy, he tickles your spirit, and you laugh! Yes, there is a time to be serious at the consideration of my great holiness, but there is much time in which to share joy in the close fellowship we have with each other. Many thinks joy only comes when things go well. But my joy comes when you realize my presence, because in my presence comes all things you need or could ever want.
My gift to you today is the leap. Let yourself experience joy deep down in your belly. Let go of the cares of life that choke out the joy that comes when my word comes to you. You are a child of God! You will live in great joy forever! Why not start now? The young calf leaps with joy. The child leaps with joy. In my magnificent creation, the stars twinkle, the frog leaps from here to there, the kangaroo skips across the field, the butterfly flitters across the sky. Learn to allow your spirit leap. Learn to release your inner joy and there will flow forth strength for healing, for breakthrough, for a new life this year!
What does it feel like when your spirit leaps?

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.
