The Day After


What if

All you wanted for CHRISTMAS were your Two Front Teeth

& you didn’t get them~

Now what?

Yes, you would be toothless, but what about your unfulfilled NEEDthat 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 & 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 & will probably visit that place again

in those moments of

'I want what I want when I want it'. But what if we accept the gift of what

CHRISTMAS 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 & 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

&

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

GOD

sends a little

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~

because

GOD knew what we all NEEDED!

HE didn’t send extra teeth, a bike or a car.

HE sent

Peace

Joy

Hope & Love

all wrapped up in a

BABY.

This gift from 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

& that will end up being

what is what you really wanted in the first place.

What is number one on your want list that you haven't received yet?

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.

This Little BABY

didn't stay in a manger just for

CHRISTMAS DAY.

HE grew up to the be

THE KING

Who

is

WHO we all

NEED beyond

CHRISTMAS DAY~

“For whoever believes in HIM shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16)

Now that is all that we really NEED,

in the midst of all of our wants that we don't yet have~

in the midst of waiting

in the midst of grief

in the midst of angst

in the midst of _______.

The BABY JESUS

births in you

all that you really wanted in the first place.

When you make

HIM

number one on your want list

HE

will be what all that you need when you NEED it beyond December 25.

Now What?

Look Up and embrace the ONE who

came from

RICHES to be swaddled in Rags

so that

HE could take our

Rags and swaddle us in

HIS RICHES

that brings

"JOY UNTO THE WORLD" (listen to the song below)
