I love this time of year, but it’s bittersweet for some of us who can’t help but be reminded of loved ones who are no longer with us or relationships that have been broken for so long it feels almost as if you’ve lost them.
The Christmas season reminds us that we are so incredibly special to God that he would offer his son to leave his position as God of the Universe and be born in the filth of the world in the most vulnerable form imaginable. He could have chose to come in any form, but he came helpless and dependent.
If anyone could know how you feel it would be Him. The all mighty, powerful creator of EVERYTHING became the weakest of all creation I believe, so he could know -really, know how it feels to be small, helpless, inadequate, defenseless……..humble.
He loves us and our weaknesses, not in spite of them.
We are merely broken people made whole by the grace of God.
It is my prayer this season that we would be compassionate to those around us. You just never know what level of suffering some of us happen to be experiencing at any given time.
If you are struggling during this season, please know that I am praying for you.
