What Gift Will You Give Him?
In the quiet of the night, I too, traveled to the Holy Christ-Child. I traced the footsteps on the path they laid before me. I walked the fields with the lowly Shepards, surrounded by darkness, afraid of the Angel’s blinding Light. I joined the entourage of Royal Robes, adorned by Kings, crowned with jewels, bearing wealth and majesty. From rags to riches, they went… toward the Manger. To celebrate God’s gift.
A baby. Lying in the hay.
And the Lord my God was near. I felt His Presence surround me.
I heard Him whisper in the quiet of the night…
“My precious child, what will you give Me?”
Once again, My God has led me here.
What will I give Him?
What will you give Him?
The Lord awaits your gift…
Will you give Him more of your time?
Or will you choose to honor His Truth?
Have you been called in a new direction?
Find that courage to take that bold step in faith?
Will you serve another who is in need?
Maybe cut down on this or that?
Perhaps you feel His nudge to sacrifice your riches?
Do you need to devote your deeds to giving?
Possibly transform anger to forgiving?
Promise to read His Promises? Dive deeper into His Word?
Reach out more to share His saving Grace with another?
Do you feel compelled to be His Voice when called?
Maybe it’s time to give that ‘person’ your attention?
Do you feel the need to turn your pain into purpose?
Are you convicted to stop judging and pour on grace?
Is there a weakness that needs redeeming?
Is it time to place more trust in Him?
Are there goals that need changing?
Perhaps you are ready to create a new life mission?
The options are endless…
What lingers in your heart?
His nudges don’t relent.
What changes do you think he is asking you to make?
What gift is He longing to receive from you?
He wants more.
In what way?
Only He can tell you…
The most valuable gift this Christmas,
Is the gift you give to Him.
