Christmas Worship

Lord, You are the gift. There is no greater gift - no greater love. We look to You, bow to You and adore You with all the angels in heaven and those who have gone before.

Dear “Nuggets of God’s Wisdom” Readers,

We have entered the time of year traditionally known as Advent where we “prepare our hearts” for Christmas and the annual commemoration of Christ’s birth. This is less about celebrating His birth than remembering what this birth represented to us – how the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ changed our future, making physical death into the door of reunification with God in heaven instead of an end to hope.  In His birth, life and death He gives us the path back to God.  He shows us the way. He shows us how we can expect life to be and how God is ever-faithful.  He will use all things for good in light of eternity.

With the release of the CHRISTMAS WORSHIP music CD November 2010, our Lord laid on my heart to have a special blog dedicated to restoring Christ to the heart of Christmas. This is a blog where posts from November through December help us press deeper into the heart of God and understand His way in a manner we can implement into our own lives and better be His sheep following Jesus, our Shepherd.

Through Christmas there will continue to be periodic posts here in “Nuggets of God’s Wisdom”, but my priority will be pressing into God for how He wants to speak to us this Christmas season.  Please join me! 

Here is the link to Christmas Worship:  www.christmasworship.wordpress.com   As usual, you can choose to receive these emails automatically by subscribing by email.  Please let others know about this blog and the Christmas Worship CD.  Can you imagine how our world would change if the focus became Jesus once again and He were truly worshipped for who He is at the center of all things this year at Christmas and beyond.

May God continue to pour the abundance of the riches of the wisdom of His way into you and through you for His glory.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Merry Christmas!

Please consider giving the gift of CHRISTMAS WORSHIP this Christmas. Christmas is coming.  A few years ago, the Lord whispered to my heart that He wanted to be worshipped at Christmas and He showed me how many of the songs we sing beautifully tell the story of His birth and why He came, but very few actually worship Him during this festive season.  As a result in December 2009 I was in the studio beginning to record CHRISTMAS WORSHIP, which includes 7 new, original Christmas worship songs, which the Lord had me compose specifically for this project.   It can be purchased at www.holyspiritpress.org or amazon.com  http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Worship-Elizabeth-Fulgaro/dp/B004D9931G/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1320069144&sr=8-2  or  itunes or CDbaby.com  http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/elizabethfulgaro3.  Music clips can be heard at the CD Baby or amazon.com links.  May God receive the honor and worship He is due this Christmas season.

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
