The Day After

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

because

only

JESUS

can

BIRTH NEW LIFE

into those dead spaces & places in our hearts.

Who is JESUS on the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS DAY~

JESUS,

who didn't just BIRTH HOPE

for the nativity scene

as

HE IS

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

but

JESUS was the same

because

JESUS is JESUS

because

HE was never about just a day my friend

because

"HOPE IS HERE" (listen to the song below)
