The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.(John 1:14 NIV84)

When I saw this angel laying there, amid the filth of my kitchen floor, I was reminded of how Christ enters in–we are not required to clean before he can come. He comes right into the mess of our lives and dwells among us.
May we welcome Him, without worrying about the mess He may find.

Come now our King.

 ….On my hardest days I imagine my struggle to bring glory through motherhood doesn’t much compare to raising the Son of God. I wonder often how anyone born into this muck could bring any kind of light with them. But I remember, as I stand there at the sink, with my hands in the dirty water, that we can only shine because He is in us……

Join me this weekend over at Bible dude for the rest of this post–we’re talking about when the waiting feels unbearable.

    Such a fun pairing of verse and image! Part of our joy I think comes from the fact that it was so unpredictable…the way He sent our King.

    wow wonderful image of HIM entering with us into our messes… we should remain thankful that he is willing to do that. His MESSage is the the beginning of our healing.

    When I was going to come to the Lord, I thought I’d put it off until I had cleaned up. The man who was leading me told me that I needed to come to Him first and THEN the cleaning would begin. MAN, was he right? My life would never have changed as it has. What a huge blessing. So, so true. And so, SO grateful.
