Can you believe it is already here?
With Thanksgiving done, we are officially moving into the Christmas season….or half way through it if you are a retail store 😦 Regardless, it is time to start thinking about those holidays in a big way, if you haven’t begun already.
And with that thought comes the need to get creative.
Now, I know that not everyone makes their own Christmas presents or bakes cookies, but I’m willing to bet money that each and every person has had to think of a unique gift for the special someone at some point in time in their life. We all have. Maybe it is the person who has everything or the one who needs it. Christmas has a way of getting those creative juices flowing.
Once upon a time, over 2000 years ago, the Creator of the universe got extra creative. He sent a baby to save the world. You can’t get any more creative than that. A hero baby. Talk about the perfect gift! Even if you had everything back then, you didn’t have that.
This unique gift is actually available every day of the year, not just at Christmas– talk about the gift that keeps on giving. Yet so many have not yet unwrapped it. Could you imagine planning and creating something special right from your heart – Wrapping it all up in a beautiful little package – Something they not only need, but that would satisfy every desire of their hearts forever – and they never unwrap it?
This is, unfortunately, the reality of the world today. Many are walking around holding that unopened gift.
Maybe they don’t realize they carry it
Some are just too busy to deal with it at this particular moment
Possibly they think it is not something they wanted or asked for
Others believe the lie that it won’t fit very well into what they imagine at this point in time of their life, and would be better opened at a later date
But here’s the truth:
There is no better time than right now. This is a one size fits all kind of gift. It will meet you right where you are, cover you no matter your size. Enhance what is already happening in your life, and yes, make it infinitely more beautiful. But you have to actually open it.
This gift was thought about, even agonized over. It was created especially for you, knowing that it was exactly what you needed. I would even venture to say that it is what you have always wanted, even if you don’t know it right now. Once opened, you will see what you never knew you were missing.
The creative heart of God has given you a gift.
It is unique, beautiful, and a perfect fit.
What do you say you open it up today?
