Christmas Meditation

The people who walked in darkness
   have seen a great light.
For those who lived in a land of deep shadows—
   light! Sunbursts of light!
You repopulated the nation,
   you expanded its joy.
Oh, they’re so glad in your presence!
   Festival joy!
The joy of a great celebration,
   sharing rich gifts and warm greetings Isaiah 9 v2–3 The Message  

 For a child has been born—for us!
   the gift of a son—for us!
He’ll take over
   the running of the world.
His names will be: Amazing Counsellor,
   Strong God,
Eternal Father,
   Prince of Wholeness.
His ruling authority will grow,
   and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings.
Isaiah 9 v 6-7 The Message


Make Room

In Over-crowded lives

Make Moments

In Time poor lives

Make Way

In No-Way lives

Make Ready

In Readymade lives

Do not lose the Way

At the shops

In the kitchen

At work

On the way to Christmas

On the way to Bethlehem

Hold within

The King of Kings

The Lord of Lords

Expand with Him

Make a Choice

To make Him Yours
