Day Two: The calm before a Miracle
Jesus, I picture you looking across the galaxies that you spoke into being. Then watching a particle of dust floating outside the window of a small room in Nazareth. Inside a young woman prays for the messiah to come. You know this young woman because you created her. You placed the ache for your arrival in her heart. She does not yet see the angel you sent because her eyes are still closed as she prays.
Soon she will hear your message from the angel.
Soon a chain of events will be set in motion that will change human history.
Soon you will allow yourself to become smaller than that particle of dust that has now settled onto her window ledge.
Today give 5 minutes to consider the heavens, the planets, and that particle of dust.
Slowly look back and forth a few times to try and take in a hint of the magnitude of all Jesus laid aside to come save us.
Lord, thank you for such humility and love. Help me follow you.
