Day 27: All I Wanted For Christmas



What if

"All You Wanted for Christmas Were Your 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

&

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~

what you NEED when you NEED it

even when it doesn’t look like anything like what you wanted?

Hmm…hard to accept,

especially those times when you 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 ourselves,

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

SAVIOR

to bring peace on earth and goodwill to men,

but

GOD

sends a

Little BABY

who 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 GIFT

of a swaddled little

BABY,

who was DELIVERED

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"

that

HE will give you what you NEED when you NEED it.

         which 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.

And that is why

GOD

sent HIS SON,

as a Little BABY

who would grow up to the be

THE KING

Who everyone NEEDS~

“For whoever believes in HIM shall not perish but have eternal life”.

Accepting this gift from

THE GIVER

will make

THIS BABY

be number one on your want list because

HE

is ALL that you NEED when you NEED it,

today

tomorrow and

beyond December 25.

Because

JESUS is

THE PEACE you WANT

THE HOPE you WANT

THE JOY you WANT

THE LOVE you WANT

THE FORGIVENESS you WANT

THE ACCEPTANCE you WANT

THE PURPOSE you WANT

So if you didn't get your two front teeth for CHRISTMAS,

THANK GOD

because

GOD gave you so much MORE,

for

HE GAVE us

"THE BABY BOY"
