A25: Advent Meditation – Day 18

A25: Advent Meditation – Day 18

The earth belongs to the Lord, and everything in it – the world and all its people.  Psalm 24:1

I remember the day my first child was born. I took one look at this beautiful little girl and realized I had no idea what I was doing. That beautiful little girl is now 21 and I have spent every moment trying to love, protect and guide her. She now lives on her own 2 hours away and I still don’t have a clue.

I know there are many parents out there that know my pain. It’s hard to let go and watch your children grow up. There are so many times where life shows us that we are not in control and we can’t see everything that is going to happen.

Now imaging that you are Mary and Joseph; you are now the parent of the Messiah, the Savior, the King of Glory.

There is comfort in knowing that everything I can’t control, everything I can’t see, belongs to God. Each one of my children and every circumstance belongs to Him. Where I am limited, He is limitless. Where I am weak, He is strong. When I am clueless, He knows everything.

Right now, thank God for giving us everything we need in His Son. Take comfort that He sees everything in your family’s lives and it all rests on His shoulders. Thank Him for being Emmanuel, God with us.
