Day 29: Fresh Start


Every CHRISTMAS SEASON

I SEEK OUT

the

FACE OF our SAVIOR JESUS

in the

LITTLE BABY

who

ONCE UPON A TIME AGO

was

BORN

into this world.

JESUS THE MAN

was A BABY, 

like everyone else.

When I LOOK at the NATIVITY,

it is so BEAUTIFULLY PEACEFUL

that I want to be there.

Do I want to be there and smell the smells of a stable?

Do I want to be there to sit in prickly hay?

Do I want to be there to hear the screams of labor?

Oh there is no other place I would rather be.

To hear the SILENT NIGHT,

the moment Mary looks into the eyes

of

THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD,

WHO IS

 the fruition of

THE PROMISE

that the angel

came to

announce to her

nine months prior.

And on that ONE NIGHT,

the world stopped

to

BEHOLD THE BIRTH of all BIRTHS.

I bet the sheep didn't even let out a BAA.

As I know what it feels like

in that very moment

when the LABOR has stopped

and you hold your BABY in your arms,

and look into your child's eyes

for the very first time.

It is a SILENT NIGHT.

ALL is BRIGHT.

A LIVING MIRACLE has come to earth.

And GOD has entrusted that little being to you,

to LOVE.

But Mary held a KING.

A KING who she immediately was IN LOVE with

because she fell IN LOVE with HIM the moment

GOD placed HIM in her womb.

A KING who did not stay in

the SILENT NIGHT of a stable.

A KING whose life mission was to die on a cross.

A KING who Mary and Joseph cared for,

whom they

 LOVED,

for

LOVE LETS GO~

"For GOD SO LOVE THE WORLD that

HE GAVE HIS ONE & ONLY SON."*

GOD had to LET GO of JESUS,

so HE could GIVE HIM to

you & me & everyone else.

And JESUS LET GO

for you & I & everyone else~

“I am the Resurrection and the Life.

Whoever BELIEVES IN~

 adheres to, trusts in, relies on

ME, as SAVIOR,

will live even if he dies;

 and everyone who LIVES AND BELIEVES

IN ME as SAVIOR,

 will never die."**

LOVE LETS GO SO YOU NEVER LET GO OF REAL LIFE.

"That whoever

BELIEVES IN HIM

 shall not perish but have eternal life" *(John 3:16).

Oh, GOD LET GO of HIS SON.

Oh, JESUS LET GO of HIS LIFE.

Because that is what LOVE DOES. 

Have you LET GO~

"Do you BELIEVE this?” **(John 11:25-26).

Do you BLEIVE IN TRUE LOVE?

"LOVE bears all things [regardless of what comes],

BELIEVES all things [looking for the best in each one],

HOPES all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times],

ENDURES all things [without weakening]" (1 Corinthians 13:7).

I fell deeper IN LOVE with JESUS 

this CHRISTMAS,

for LOVING JESUS has no limits.

Thank YOU GOD

for drawing me DEEPER into the FACE OF JESUS,

for

"I KNOW JESUS IS HERE"
