It also reminds me of my “collecting” weakness from the past. 😛 A child-like Christmas is a simple Christmas, with a simple story and a simple message.
So we can recognize the god-Child who came to restore the child in us.
The God-child, Jesus, brought hope, forgiveness, joy, grace, love, and peace…
Simple things a childish heart craves…and needs.
Rest for the weary, and strength to soar…
Faith to believe and receive…
Could a child ask for more?
I’m dreaming of a child-like Christmas.
How about you?
I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you, he is Christ the Lord This will be a sign to you. You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger (Luke 2:10-11, NIV).
My Personal Prayer for You
Lord, we ask You this year for the faith of a child so we can see Christmas–and life–the way You intended. Thank You for Jesus, Your own Son, the One who came to earth as the God-child, the One who is a Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace, Everlasting Father–the One our hearts so desperately need. Thank You for Christ-mas!
