She..laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.
came bare and naked
birthed into empty hands that He made
for He came to save us
brought in vulnerability
no throes of power
no forces of defeat
He was the power and He would defeat
but first He came quietly into our midst
ADVENT – a KING quietly born for the paupers
Ann Asks and will you join in answering
What do you need to lay down so your hands will be open to receive God’s gift?
How does it change Christmas for you to know that Jesus did it for love?
Take a moment to kneel close at the manger, thanking God for His abundance.
I lay down my worry and need to fix it
The swirling what if’s and the joyless analysis
I let go and hold on to God
Christmas meaning shifts when you know and focus on how this Babe King came because of LOVE
all for LOVE…..you and me
I kneel at the manger and worship you God for coming in little form to save us
for placing the greatness of YOU in the tiniest of packages
the way we come to the earth
thank you for loving us that much
thank you for this BLESSED ABUNDANT Grace….called JESUS
