where is He??

"Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!" 2 Corinthians 9:15

"Where is he?!" "Have you seen him?!" "Can you help us find him?!"

Mrs. Anderson's class was on a mission and filled with excitement.  The gingerbread man had escaped their room; fortunately, he had left them a clue.  They followed the clue, only to find another.  And that clue led them to yet another.  As i watched them on their quest, their spirits were not damped  by the continuous journey, and their anticipation only mounted with each clue found.  They stayed focused on the path he set for them, and soon to their delight the gingerbread man was recovered.

What have you been hunting for this season? A special gift, unique gadget, five minutes of peace?  For me, it's been baby Jesus' to give as reminders of the reason for CHRISTmas.  As i searched the stores, i came up empty handed. I had ignored the clues and looked in all the wrong places.  He is not in the stores, but in our heart.  

When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we asked Him into our heart... right?  He is still there, but unfortunately we cover Him up with others priorities during His season and tuck Him in a corner.  So, i have no gift for you, just this reminder of where the greatest gift of all is. Here's your clue... Jesus said, "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with ALL your heart".  Let's stay on the right path by following this clue. There is no greater joy than finding and being with Him.  If you need more clues, see His Word... it's loaded.

So, let's say is again... "Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

Know it, believe it, live it... and be filled with Him always.

have a Jesus-filled day!
