Tag Archives: LOOKING FOR CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS

NO STANGER AT THE MANGER–seeking Christ in the midst of suffering

imageI say to God, my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why am I sad and troubled by my enemies?” My enemies’ insults make me feel as if my bones were broken. They are always saying, “Where is your God?” Why am I so sad? Why am I so upset? I should put my hope in God and keep praising him, my Savior and my God.
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭42:9-11‬‬

I went looking for the Christ Child today
As the media images made him seem far away
With faces of children lost in the fray
As friends suffer with pain they can’t keep at bay
As unbelievers scoff at my naivity
‘Where is this Christ of Christmas amid such disray?’
My heart broken, I still looked for Christ Jesus today.
Not in the manager set out on display
But deep down in myself not that far away
I felt his anguish, his love, his heart hurting with mine today.
For the suffering that so heavily weighs
On a world that he suffered and died to save
His voice a whisper, I hear him say
Comfort the people I place in your way
And I will be in Christmas Always.

NOTHING CAN KEEP CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS IF I KEEP MY HEART IN HIS SWAY…NOTHING, NO ONE CAN X HIM AWAY
