where is He??
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with ALL your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
They were on a mission and filled with excitement. The gingerbread man had escaped their room; luckily he 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 they found. They were focused and stayed on the right path, and soon to their delight the gingerbread man was recovered.
What have you been hunting for? A special gift, a unique gadget, five minutes of peace? For me, it's been some baby Jesus' to give as reminders of the reason for CHRISTmas. As i searched from store-to-store, i came up empty handed. How could there be CHRISTmas without baby Jesus? I finally stopped and remembered.
There was and is a baby Jesus, but i had ignored the clues and looked in all the wrong places. He is not in the stores, but in our heart. When we accepted Jesus as our Savior, we asked Him into our heart... right? He is still there. Unfortunately, we are the ones who cover Him up with others priorities and scoot Him in a corner. So, i have no gift for you, because you actually already have it. And here is your clue of where the best gift is -- in your heart.
Know it, believe it, live it... and be filled with Him always.
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
