Perhaps we too need push back some of the busyness of our lives and offer to God a place in our lives. Let us give God just a little space in our lives and we, too might be surprised by God. We could see anew the promise of God’s love. We too might see the lowliest place transformed by the love of God. A new hope might dawn in our hearts and lives. Perhaps we could even lend our voice to Christmas angel choirs. Perhaps the light of God’s love in our hearts could push back a little of the darkness of our world near and far. We might even share a gift with those whose lives could use a little more love.
(Scripture of the week)
“While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. Luke 2.7 (NIV)
Loving God, I offer you a place in the busyness of my life. Work a miracle of love in my life, and help me be part of some small miracle of love in someone else’s life, through your power and to your glory, Amen.
Wishing you all the true gifts of Christmas –hope, peace, love and joy through Christ our Lord –Pastor TJ
