He came...

I had a whole different post for today, I’ll post it later…

I was listening to the song ‘Winter Snow’ by Chris Tomlin, it’s one of my favorite Christmas songs… I am having weird chest thing going on… and I’m listening to it… really listening to it, letting it sink into the depths of my soul. The Christ Child. Amazing. I’m fighting back tears…

He could have come…

He came so that we could have life. And to the fullest. Don’t be fooled by things that steal your joy, or your life ,or your love.

My life is crazy, it’s busy, and last night I had this amazing overwhelming need to go be with my friend and her baby. I could have given you a list of things that needed to be done… but only one thing seemed important. Loving my friend. So when there seems to be so much to do, loving seems the most important to do. I spent some sweet time smooching my sleeping nephew. Snuggling up. Nothing seemed more important than that. I imagine that sometimes when I am all crazy inside, that God knows that I just need some snuggle time. It does wonders for my soul.

I never doubt God’s love for me. I never doubt that when He tells me to go do something, it is for His good, and mine.

God could have come like a storm, like a fire, He came like a baby (just as promised in Isaiah 9), He came so that we could have peace, joy, and love. Does that blow you away like it does me?

Isaiah 9:6-7
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.



Could've come like a mighty storm
With all the strength of a hurricane
You could've come like a forest fire
With the power of heaven in Your flame

But You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

You could've swept in like a tidal wave
Or an ocean to ravish our hearts
You could have come through like a roaring flood
To wipe away the things we've scarred

But You came like a winter snow
(Yes, You did)
You were quiet
You were soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

Oh, no, Your voice wasn't in a bush burning
No, Your voice wasn't in a rushing wind
It was still
It was small
It was hidden

You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

Falling
To the earth below
You came falling
From the sky in the night
To the earth below
