Good morning, DearHeart.

Each year (well, pre-Covid 🙄) our church has an old fashioned, traditional Christmas play. I love it for so many reasons – how it brings the nativity to life for the children, what it is embedding in their little hearts, what it stirs and brings to the surface in me …

is there anything as precious as the children’s Christmas play?

It doesn’t matter if the child has ever been in the doors of our church or not – if it’s a kid, they walk in and get a robe or a set of angel wings and they are in!

How cool is that?

We watch, we smile, and love their actions, facial expressions, and the little unexpecteds that play out on stage. Psalm 8:2 delivers a nugget of truth –

“You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.”

He Himself will teach us, from a young age, to tell of His strength. This is the very reason I find the children’s play so moving.

God uses the weak,

the defenseless,

the dependent,

and the innocent to be a display of His power, thus silencing our enemies. From the very lips of children, He ordains praise which can silence the strongest foe.

The Bible cross reference led me to Matthew 21:16 where Jesus mentions this verse. He welcomed children and delighted in their

exuberant faith,

joyful praise,

and teachable spirits.

Thinking on this verse, I find myself asking this question …

What is my life lacking this morning?

Is it exuberant faith?

Joyful praise?

Or, a teachable spirit?

We need a little Christmas this year more than ever. It has been and will be so different. God, restore us to You … even though it is different – You are the same … that each of us can embrace the fullness of this Christmas.

Wake up.

We need a little Christmas.

Open up to your restoration.

Go.
