All around us we are surrounded by darkness. Death, regret, worry, loneliness, bitterness, rejection, stone cold suffering blow threw, and our thin coats of humanity are unable to keep out the chill that pours into our feeble, broken souls. In such a time as this God reveals Himself as the infant Child. His tiny fingers grab hold of your calloused, freezing cold hands and warmth and light shoots from God’s fragile hands, his tiny hands that hold the whole world. These same hands will allow rough nails to pierce through them only to keep clasping to all your brokenness, all your sin, all your pain. He has transformed the deadest winter into the Christmas story. It is the Divine Love story that is yours now.
Ann Voskamp writer in her book “The Greatest Gift”, “No matter your story before, this is your beginning now: you were formed by Love…for love.”
Have no anxiety anymore dear one. God is for us, God is loving us, God is with us.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it – John 1:5
