GOD - HAD - A - DIFFERENT - PLAN ...

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

CHRISTMAS 2012

WRITTEN 14:12:12

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

God knew what He was doing - it was all in His plan 
When the Inn Keeper spoke to Joseph - saying -
' Sorry - We've no room '
God wasn't up in Heaven - wondering - and fretting -
' Oh dear ! - What am I to do ?
Nor - wringing His hands - and pacing -
Like some of us might do .
No - He - had laid His plans out - many years before .
And He knew His Son - would be born that day -
On a lonely stable floor .
He also knew which shepherds - would be on 
The hills that night - and the names of every one of them 
The angels - would cause fright .

But - what we tend to overlook - is how it would have been .
If the birth of God - had taken place - in a crowded Inn.
As the shepherds - would not have gone to town -
Nor - the angels would have sung - Glory in the Highest -
Peace - Goodwill - towards all men.
And Mary would have found no rest - amid the noisy din -
And - the doors would have been locked at night .
So - no Wise Men - could get in .

So - all in all - let's not get cross - 'cos the Inn keeper -
Turned them from his door -
As - God - knew what He was doing - when He made 
His - Labour Room - a lowly - stable floor.

And - from that day on - as one door closed - a 
More - Glorious One - was - flung open wide.
And Jesus bids a welcome - to all who step inside.
Yes - His Door - is always open -
And He welcomes us within - and says to us -
' Beloved - there will always be a room - for You 
In - My - Heavenly - Home .'


""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

God never rejects anyone who opens their hearts to Him -

He tells us in Rev 3 v 20.' Here I am! I stand at the door and 
knock . If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will 
come in and eat with him , and he with Me.'

Make Jesus welcome in your home this Christmas - and He 
will make you welcome in His for all eternity.

God bless you with His peace . Now and always.

with love from Stella x
