With Christmas only days away, are you feeling distant and depleted?
Re-write your story. Begin with today.
I have the remarkable opportunity of spending time with a group of teenage girls who gather together for Bible study. One day, out-of-the-blue, one of my young friends dramatically and energetically proclaimed, “My life is full of inserts!”
Startled, we all looked at her absolutely confused.
“Open mouth. Insert retainer. Open shoes. Insert special insoles.”
“Oh!” I interjected and looked her in the eye. “Open heart . . .”
She grinned. “Open heart. Insert Jesus!”
So . . .
The question for us today, no matter the degree of our worn and weary soul . . .
How. When. Where.
Will you insert Jesus into your heart TODAY?
The options and possibilities are endless.
- Kneel tonight when you pray.
- Say no to something trivial.
- Say yes to something important.
- Sing a love song.
- Go to bed early.
- Hold hands with someone you love.
- Read each Christmas card as a love note from Jesus.
Ask Jesus to lead the way.
He comes to open hearts. Broken hearts. Hungry hearts.
To your heart and mine.
Beginning today, make it an open-heart Christmas.
