Daily Thought For January 13, 2019
The Battle Has Been Won
He lays himself down in your mire.
He unfolds himself in the stench you want to hide, in that mess that is your impossible, in the mucked straw you don’t want anyone to know.
Rejected at the inn, holy God comes in small to where you feel rejected and small. God is with you now. Wherever you are—in soundless cry or hidden brokenness or in your ache—God always wants to be with you. You are not ever left alone in this…
This is Love you can’t comprehend. You can only feel and touch this kind. There, in the place where you feel rejected, you can be touched by God. There, in the places you feel small, you can touch God.”
(Ann Voskamp, December 2018 Magnificat, p. 180.)
