We're just over a week away from Christmas. Where are you, emotionally, right now?
Some of us are bustling with excitement and busyness of the holidays anticipating the festivities with family and friends as we celebrate Christmas. And some of us are caught in the throws of sadness as we are missing loved ones even more poignantly during the holidays. Trust me when I tell you that I have been in both places...and sometimes vacillate between them time and again.
No matter where you are, I want you to know that you were made for more. MORE! Christmas is about the Creator of the world coming to this earth to be the SAVIOR of the world. Why would He do that? Because He loved you so much He would do the unthinkable to have a relationship with you...because you were made for more. You were made to walk hand in hand with THE Holy God of the universe, Jesus Christ.
If you are busy with excitement or if you find yourself melancholic, stop and take a moment to remember, or realize for the first time, just how much Jesus loves you - you were made for more.
Christmas is about Jesus coming down from heaven to make a way for you and I to have a relationship with God. He didn't stay a baby in the manger. He grew up, lived a perfect life, died on the cross for the sins of the world and rose again to be the Savior of the world. He did that for you. Because, "You were made for more."
Merry Christmas and blessings to you ~ Wendy
