The Gift                          12/18/2001

I needed to be rescued. I just couldn't take it any more!

At my lowest point I cried out from embarrassment and need and He sends me a baby?

Never mind that I'm already stretched to my limit--

this baby starts kicking; making demands, growing inside of me controlling what I do, what I say, what I hear . . .

pushing away all the mess

--declaring himself King

and making me strong.

Matthew 2:1-4 KJV

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, {2} Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. {3} When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. {4} And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.  

2 Corinthians 6:16 KJV

. . . for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
