It was the night before Christmas and all through the house the family was struggling and broken due to some issues that were as small as a mouse. The tree was decorated with lights that flickered all around but unfortunately due to the severed families some children were missing and very few children were gathered around. Hearts were hurting in disguise while some children simply hid their inner cries due to the lack of unity in the family of God. The home was barely full with strife in the air due to the busy schedules and the children that were scattered everywhere.
As the children began to cry out from their hearts for those that were lost to come home all of a sudden an Angel dropped in and began to sing a beautiful song. On this Holy Night that Jesus was born the Angel began to tell them how their hearts can be healed from where they had been scorned. The Angel said that God so loved the world that He sent His Firstborn so that the family of God will no longer be splintered or torn. As the Angels sang in the spirit of God the childrens tears of pain turned to tears of joy that fell like rain.
When the elders heard the children’s cries they stopped in to see what was taken place and then all of a sudden the Angel showed them His face. There were no questions asked or doubts of speculation in what was taking place in Gods mercy and unfailing grace. As they all began to look for their children at the foot of the tree they were amazed at what they saw because the children had replaced the tree with a cross. The adults were so taken at this sight in the childrens unity that they knew better than to ask what was wrong because they knew the children were right.
“It was time that we learned from our past in putting aside our differences for the family to be restored,” the Angel spoke. Then all of a sudden as the people began to come together in God’s unconditional love more Angels began appear relieving the people of their fears because they knew God was near. There was a sweet melody that could be heard from the house in the spirit of God that reached the streets during that Silent Night which restored the treasures of the love within the heart of the home.
These gifts which were received were not gifts that grew old because everyone began to realize their purpose in life through the love of Jesus Christ. We all have miracle moments and praises from big to small and it is our place to always try to share them all. For we are all equal at the foot of the cross and God so loves each one of us that He sent His Only Son to keep us from being lost.
As the night came to a close for a new day to begin the family went to bed with a new sense of peace between their family and friends. They knew their home was safe and secure because of their salvation in Jesus Christ and they praised God for simply sending His Angel that dropped in….Amen
