Their Part

gaillovesgodspoetry

He’s so often judged to be unfair
and accused of not having a heart,
yet only God and His Son
were there the day they had to part.
Only they know the true loss
of being together
when Jesus left heaven for a moment
to give us forever.
Only they knew the longing
of being together again,
as Jesus grew and ministered
and drew closer to the end.
God and God alone
stood at His Son’s grave,
as He grieved for the Son
who had been so brave.
Now only God and His Son
can provide salvation.
We will all be together.
It will deserve celebration.

The Days Were Accomplished

“And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
– Luke 2:4-7 KJV

Today, Lord, You emphasize to me that Joseph too was a part of Your great plan. All of it was You… Mary as the chosen obedient virgin… Jesus being conceived of the Holy Ghost within that obedient virgin… Joseph being a chosen obedient lineage of David… the city of Bethlehem being the birthplace… Nazareth having something good to come out of her… being taxed together to historically record their union and location at the time of the birth… and that the days were accomplished according to the One who designed them.

Your Son would be born and wrapped in a manger because You led them to an inn with no room… representing each human heart that has no room for You. But just as every soul that filled that inn had purpose in accomplishing Your plans, You sent Your Son to save each one of us from ourselves. Your Son represents the love You have for each one of us, and the lengths You are willing to go to… to help us see You… to welcome You… to love You.

You do not force any of us into a relationship, but are more than willing to make such powerful statements with Your love, as no one knows better than You, our nature to judge the greater the humility and mercy one shows us the more they must really love us. Thank You for loving us more than we could ever understand! Thank You for loving us!

I love You too, Father! ❤
I love You, Jesus! ❤
I love You, Holy Ghost! ❤
