The day finally came.
The day that GOD said would come.
The day that JESUS came to earth
dressed as a BABY.
And now it is THE DAY AFTER.
What do you do with THE BABY?
Do you pack HIM up until next CHRISTMAS
What difference did a day make?
Whether your CHRISTMAS DAY turned out exactly how you planned or
totally different than you could have every imagined
doesn't change the TRUTH
that JESUS was born
and is here to stay,
because the moment
HE is born into your heart
HE becomes all you NEED
in every moment
especially when you don't have what you want
BIRTH NEW LIFE
into those dead spaces & places in our hearts.
Who is JESUS on the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS DAY~
who didn't just BIRTH HOPE
for the nativity scene
THE HOPE that would never leave.
THE HOPE that we cling to in our hearts.
THE HOPE that presses forward when we want to stand still.
THE HOPE that is beyond whatever we see & feel in the present.
THE HOPE that was born with a cry from a little BABY boy who was born just like us.
HE came into the world just like us
But HE went out of the world not just like us
so we can LIVE with HOPE
that lives beyond the grave
that lives beyond the sorrow
that lives beyond what was
because HIS HOPE is NEW BIRTH
into every hopeless moment.
Oh the REALITY that CHRISTMAS
is always here because
HE is always here.
I know that CHRISTMAS 2020
was so very different for all of us
JESUS was the same
JESUS is JESUS
HE was never about just a day my friend
