Day 26: All I wanted For Christmas
"All You Wanted for Christmas Were Your Two Front Teeth"
& you didn’t get them~
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
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
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,
especially those times when we refuse to accept the "gift" because it isn’t
"What I want".

GOD knows you & I
better than we know ourself,
HE knows what we NEED when we NEED it
& it may not be the what we want when we want it.
The world wanted a
to bring peace on earth and goodwill to men,
that does not look like a King.
Who wants to trust a BABY for all that he/she NEEDS?
It isn’t about trusting
as it is about trusting the
who sent the
The swaddled little
looking into HIS parents eyes on the night of
knew what we all NEEDED.
HOPE & LOVE
all wrapped up in a
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"
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?
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.
sent HIS SON,
this Little BABY
who would grow up to the be
Who is What we all NEED~
“For whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”~
Accepting this gift from the GIVER
be number one on your want list because
will be what all that you NEED when you NEED it~
