The Thing to Remember

There is something I don’t want to forget. It would be easy to, because I have a great deal on my mind right now, and it’s all tied together.

Health, family, church, worry, finances, Christmas and many other things all competing for my attention at the same time.

There is only so much to give and that’s what makes it easy to forget.

I am a broken individual, and in certain ways always will be. I am weird, and mixed up sometimes, and even though I wish I could fix myself and all the things that are wrong with me, I can’t.

And that is what I forget.

I can’t fix myself.

For me, that’s the reminder I need this time of year. That’s what Christmas is about.

We couldn’t fix our problems, so God made a way for us.

He sent Jesus, Immanuel. In a lowly way to a lowly place.

And that’s Christmas.

Whether it be in December (it probably wasn’t) or sometime in the Spring (it probably was), the thing we need to remember about Christmas is that it means there is no longer just us trying to do everything.

We don’t have to try and fix ourselves.

We are seen in the place we are right now. We are known. We are loved.

We aren’t alone.

We never were.

Merry Christmas.

God has changed my life, and changed me. It's that simple. I will ever be grateful, and if I live to be...well, OLD, I will never tire of telling people about the work done in my life, and what can be done in theirs, should they trust God with their innermost everything...
