Last night I found myself wondering why Andrew threw up after church right before Greg could get him through the crowd to the bathroom. I wondered why Emma wet her bed, and Owen woke up crying every hour. Children are a wonder. At one point while holding Owen I thought to myself in an agitated voice, “Good Lord Child!” Immediately I heard the Lord say, “Yes…. I was.”
The Wonder of Christmas is this: God became a Man.
The definition of wonder is: 1 a : a cause of astonishment or admiration : marvel
God knows us fully because He fully experienced humanity.
Isaiah 9:6 (New International Version, ©2010)
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus that you understand me because you experienced life as a flesh and blood human. There is nothing I face that you can’t relate to.
