The Gift

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) 1Now 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.
