Be Born In Me – Christmas

Be Born in Me by Francesca Battistelli

Year in and year out we celebrate Christmas with parties, presents, people, and pain.  Yes, pain.  We miss those we love who are not with us for whatever reason.  We recognize that our world is not Norman Rockwell wonderful (Holiday Memories, Nov. 18, 2015).  We realize this is not a Beaver Cleaver world and I Love Lucy is funny only because things are going very wrong in Lucy’s world and not mine for thirty blessed minutes.

Several years ago, I began to dissect the Christmas story.  I would take one part of the story and learn as much as I could about the characters, the star, the relationships, and even the changes in the earth.  The story of Christ’s birth took on renewed beauty and the gift became more precious.

Every detail was planned out before the Creation.  Jesus took on dust and became limited by time and space.  He became dependent on other dust.  He was born with a purpose and it would cost Him and those who loved Him everything.

The gift of Christmas is of no avail if we refuse the gift.  It is offered to all.  Few receive it.  This year I pray He will Be Born in Me anew.  I pray you will reread, re-listen to the music, re-examine your heart and that you too will ask Him to Be Born in You!  

This is the gift He desires.  An open door to your heart.  Please, let Him in.  You will never be disappointed in this holy treasure.  He would have come only for you.  Ask Him in.  He is waiting patiently.   Do you have room?  Tricia asked this question on Dec 1st and I am asking again.  Don’t let another CHRISTmas season go by without answering this question once and for all.

About Yvonne Jones

I am at heart, a LIFEguard: "big" sister, mama, grandmother, aunt, friend, swimming coach, lifeguard trainer, and registered nurse. I am in the business of alleviating fear through education and lots of hand holding. As a swimming instructor, I have taught people of all ages to overcome fear of the water and I marvel as fear gives way to fearlessness, as panic turns to pure joy, as tears dissolve into giggles of glee, and pennies retrieved from the bottom of the abyss become trophies. As a nurse, I have been privileged to walk up to Heaven's gate as patients and family are welcomed home, witnessed the miracle of birth, helped mend broken hearts, and cared for the elderly as they wait. Scriptures number one admonition is "fear not." Question is HOW??? The Word becomes our swimming instructor and can help us learn to "tread water til Jesus comes." Something my students often thought I was going to make them do! So welcome to my pool! Jump in the cool water. Let it refresh your soul and feel the unseen hands of the Master Lifeguard lift you up and out of the deep water. Who knows, you just might even walk on water!
