The love and the light

And Joseph also went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the town of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, To be enrolled with Mary, his espoused (married) wife, who was about to become a mother. [Matt. 1:18-25.] And while they were there, the time came for her delivery, (Luke 2:4-6 AMP) And she gave birth to her Son, her Firstborn; and she wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room or place for them in the inn. (Luke 2:7 AMP)

Mary was very close to giving birth and Joseph gently took her to Bethlehem to be enrolled in a survey of the population. It wasn't perfect timing or was it? Our lives don't usually seem like the timing is right. But God has a birds eye view and is weaving a life of His love for us. In His crooked timing he's saying "Come nearer."

Then It happened, the event of the Ages our hearts are warmed and cheered by 2100 years later. She gave birth to her Son, her Firstborn... He was God's only Begotten (John 3:16) sent because He loved us with a large and deep and tender love. He was Mary's Firstborn. Was she a bit worried about taking care of her first let alone God's only Begotten? Or was she trusting Him like when she said to the angel, "Be it unto me as you said." She had a sweet way of trusting Him. Then she wrapped Jesus up tight and cozy and laid Him in His crib, a feeding trough for animals. She might have taken a little rest while Joseph was nearby.

For years a lot of us close our hearts to Him..."no room at this inn." Then we finally yield to the pull to say, "Yes." We let Him in and begins a relationship like no other with the Father of lights...

A star to guide the Wise Men, bright glorious angels, the light inside our hearts.
