Holy Whispers

Through all of the decorating and the planning, through the holiday busyness and rush, through the Christmas parties and family gatherings, a voice whispers ever so gently, "See Me." 

Amid the carolers and the shoppers, among gifts and greenery, in the glow of candles and sparkling lights, a voice whispers ever so softly, "I'm here."

During the regular, ordinary days, during the difficult, painful days, during Christmas Day, a voice whispers ever so perfectly, "I love you."

While the memories pervade, as the loneliness sets in, when the uncertainties linger, a voice whispers ever so sweetly, "I'm your peace."

In the shadows of yesterday, in the dance of today, and in the hope of tomorrow, a voice simply whispers, "Follow Me."

On that night, when a newborn baby laid sleeping in a simple manger as angels and shepherds rejoiced, the Father declared to people of all races and all generations, "All is well. Emmanuel has come. He will save you. Receive Him." 

Holy whispers pursue us.  

Holy whispers draw us.

Holy whispers beckon us.

Holy whispers still echo throughout the realm of time.

"Today, in the city of David, a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ, the Lord." (Luke 2:11)

This is Christ, the King.

This is Jesus, the Savior.

This is Yeshua, the Messiah.

Holy whispers.

Can you hear them?

"See Me. I'm here. I love you. I'm your peace. Follow Me."
