do you know how much you’re loved
by the One who crafted the earth with breath and words?
do you know how much you’re valued
by the One who hung blameless on wood next to mere sinful men?
do you know that grace trumps law and forgiveness over judgment?
and, do you know the whispering words of the gossips in church are not the Christ and don’t represent His feelings toward you?
this Christmas may you find solace that the One who hung stars, and slung oceans together
loves you so much that He orchestrated the Messiah to be your savior baby.
to love you,
to forgive you,
to hold you in your brokenness,
and heal you whole.
and, may you know that no matter how imperfectly He is represented by those who claim Him, He is not them.
He is not their bitter words, or backs turned, or their imperfect human flesh which makes mistakes.
you’re loved, beloved.,
by a perfect God who has made a place for you,
and that is something to believe in this season.
