If you can, stop for a minute now, take a deep breath, and let the joy and wonder of God’s ultimate gift to us sink deep into your heart. His Son. The King of Heaven chose to be born as a human baby in the humble of circumstances, so that thirty-three years later He could die to give us all new life and a forever Light that far outshines the Bethlehem stars.
I pray that we all truly feel that blessing this Christmas, and always. And that as we give Him thanks for His gift, we each surrender more of our heart to Him, entrust more of our life to Him, open more of our mind to Him, and know His peace.
… You will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 TLB
