Advent Day 20

"Sometimes, our barrenness has nothing to do with our physical circumstance and everything to do with our paper-thin heart. The thing that stops us from believing the miracle isn’t only our advanced maturity, but also our inability to imagine the impossible. We’re too old for the foolish imaginations run-rampant we see in children. Too wise in our own right, to dream fanciful dreams of the impossible-made-possible. We know better–we’ve lived hard times, our experiences fill us with doubt, or what we deem to be, a healthy measure of realism. We plant our feet in the solid earth and declare the miracle to be impossible. Absurd at best. We pray in our disbelief, and sometimes, God hushes us with His holiness, in order to restore us." ~Kris Camealy, p96-97.

This week, as we move closer to Christmas Day, let us allow ourselves to get caught up in the spirit of the Christmas season and embrace the miracle of the Incarnation - "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us...." John 1:14
