Day 9: With US


As we continue our

24 Day Journey

answering the question

WHO IS THIS BABY?

I ask you~

Who do you say THIS BABY is?

Think about it~

when you see the manger scene

with

BABY JESUS who is HE to you?

What difference has THE BABY made in your life?

What do you want THE BABY to do for you?

As we are in the process of

saying "good-bye for now" to

my precious husband's mother~

who is resting peacefully,

while there are

Christmas trees & Santas all around & the traditional songs playing through the air,

I think

Who is THIS BABY

and how can HE help?

Is HE the JOY that was birthed into the darkness of a sinning world?

Is HE the HOPE that was birthed into the helplessness of the heart?

Is HE the PEACE that was birthed into life that is filled with the unknowns?

Is HE the SAVIOR for one and for all that need

JOY in the midst of darkness

HOPE in the midst of helplessness

PEACE in the midst of the unknowns?

Is the Christmas Season to remind us that

JOY & HOPE & PEACE

is right here & now because

THE BABY was born~

and

IN HIM

there is life forevermore~

more than we could ever imagine

especially when we are in the midst of such great sorrow~

Just because

THE BABY

was born in the midst of such great sorrow~

"and they shall call His name Immanuel"

which translated means,

"GOD WITH US." Matthew 1:23

This LITTLE TINY BABY

is

GOD WITH US

All Because

GOD never leaves us or forsakes us.

GOD has a greater plan for all of our lives that is beyond our comprehension~

"For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come." Hebrews 13:14

All because

A JESUS

left HIS Heavenly Home of Riches

to be swaddled in Rags

so we can be swaddled in

HIS JOY, HOPE & PEACE

all because of

HIS LOVE

that is so great that I can't comprehend it,

especially at a time of great sorrow.

But now

I look at

THE BABY

with hopeful eyes

because

HE

is telling us

It is all going to be okay,

actually better than okay

because

THIS BABY changed the world

the moment

HE let out HIS first cry

so that

HE could leave the manger

so

He could be with

You & I

always

until the great moment

when

"He will wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. All of that has gone forever.” Revelation 21:4

Life passes into Life again

all because

WHO IS THIS BABY~

IMMANUEL~GOD WITH US

today, tomorrow & forever.

Let's look at

THE BABY

with our whole heart and receive

the

JOY & HOPE & PEACE

that only

HE

was born to give.
