Mighty Christmas

When you say Merry Christmas, what do you think the word Merry means? My whole life Merry Christmas, simply meant, “Hey, happy Christmas to you.” But, what if merry didn’t mean happy?

Think about it. Remember Robin Hood and his Merry Men? It wasn’t Robin Hood and his happy-go-lucky cheerful men joyfully jumping up and down in tights. No, in the old English, merry meant mighty or powerful!

I don’t often quote my own song lyrics, but these are about as succint as I can be:

What if all of this were true

Emmanuel, how God came through

Is this more than Christmas cheer

Is this just a story or what if it’s real

 

Would I still be lonely would I know fear

Would my worry hold me, could I be healed

I’m crying out loud

 

This year like never before

Jesus reveal a little more

To my soul would you

Show me just how powerful

You are more than a manger

Jesus the mighty savior

In my soul turn this

Merry into Mighty Christmas

 

What if in my silent nights

You were enough, You were the light

Angels saying “Do not Fear”

Is that still a promise, do You still come near?

 

Meet me in my lonely, tear down my fear

Hold me through my worry, Lord would you Heal

 

This year like never before

Jesus reveal a little more

To my soul would you

Show me just how powerful

You are more than a manger

Jesus the mighty savior

In my soul turn this

Merry into Mighty Christmas

 

Whatever you are dealing with this Christmas season, remember, this is either a Happy-go-lucky safe and boring Christmas or this is a powerful and Mighty Christmas where Jesus, Emmanuel, God is With Us.
