Day 10: All I Want for Christmas is ...


What if

"All I (you) want for Christmas are My Two Front Teeth"

& you didn’t get them~

then what?

Yes, you would be toothless~

but what about your unfulfilled need that remained.

Would this Christmas be marked down as a bad Christmas?

Your toothless smile

would daily remind you of that “bad" Christmas

&

you would hope the next one would be better.

What do you really want~

and

what if you never receive it?

Would This Baby be a bad baby?

We don't blame Santa

for not receiving what is written on our Christmas list,

so

what about when

God

doesn’t give you what you want when you want it?

Do you blame God?

I have been there many times

and will probably visit that place many more times,

in those moments of

I want what I want when I want it, but

what if

just what if

we

accept the gift of what

God gives us~

of what

we need when we need it

even when it

doesn’t look like anything like what we wanted?

Hmm…

hard to accept,

and at times we refuse to accept the "gift" because it isn’t

"What I want".

But...

because

God is God

&

God knows you & I

better than we know ourself,

He knows what we need when we need it

and it many not be the what we want when we want it.

The world wanted a

Savior

to bring peace on earth and goodwill to men....

but

then

God

sends a

Little Baby~

a

Baby

that

does not look like a King.

Who wants to trust a Baby for all that he/she needs?

It isn’t about trusting

a Baby,

as it is about trusting the

One

who sent the

Gift.

The swaddled little

Baby,

looking into

His parents eyes on the night of

His Birth,

was sent

because

God

knew

what we all

Needed.

He sent

Peace,

Joy,

Hope & Love...

all wrapped up in a

Baby.

He didn’t send extra teeth, a bike or a car

He sent a Baby

But a Baby?

This gift was all about the Giver..

"For God so loved the world…

that He gave His One and Only Son..." John 3:16

"For God so Loved"~

He sent

The Perfect Gift

"For God so Loved"~

He will give you

what you need

when you need it and

& that will end up being

what is what you really wanted in the first place.

What is number one on your want list?

Is it a person, place or thing?

Or is it just to be happy?

Whatever it is, it is important to you, so it is important to God.

But God…

Sent His Son.

This Little Baby

who

would grow up to the be

a King…

Who

is

What we all

Need.

“For whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”~

and

that is all that we really need,

because

This Little Baby

Will

give you all that you really wanted in the first place.

Accepting this gift from the Giver

will make

This Baby

be number one on your want list.

because

He

will be what all that you need when you need it~

today

tomorrow and

beyond December 25.

They are my friend's grandchild's feet.
