This is for you. I love you so much. This is for you. Will you please come down and get this today.
A simple stamped page, wrapped in festive wrap and foil ribbon, given from a heart full of love and longing. A childlike faith.
We’ve had many conversations about this gift my daughter desires to give to God. She is giving it with all her heart and wondering when God will come to get His gift.
So, we’ve talked about how God can see the beautiful picture she drew and how on Christmas we will unwrap her gift and hang it in the window to help us remember that God wants us to give him all of our hearts and love.
She continues to ask when God and Jesus will come to get her gift and I am simply telling her, for now, that they will see her gift and love her gift, but they probably won’t come and take it from our window. Instead they will leave it for all of us as a reminder that God loves the faith and love of a child.
God longs for each child and adult to give their WHOLE heart for the Lord. Not just a section or piece. Not just the bit that is safe or good. He wants all of us. He desires to have us lift our hands, eyes and hearts up to Him in submission and say it is yours Lord, ALL of it. You are my God and I am giving myself to you. Mold me, shape me, use me.
How about you? Are you willing to give the Lord the gift he so deeply longs for. Will you give Him your heart, each and every part. The good, the hurting, the ugly, the willing, the controlling, the simple, the complex, He wants it all. The amazing thing is our God loves us even with the deep, dark secrets we hold. He desires us to surrender it all to Him. He will take the hurts, the anger, the sin and remove it from our lives and replace it with His love, healing and peace.
This Christmas season will you place your heart in His open waiting hands. Will you let Him transform your life? The blessings are waiting for you if you just give the gift of your heart.
Abounding, flowing, soul healing love is waiting. Give your gift and receive.
