He Comes to Us

During a Christmas program, the children's choir sang. A girl had a solo part and a pretty red dress that she could not wait to wear. When her time to sing came, she forgot the words and fell apart in tears. She walked back to the choir sobbing. Soon, the other children were putting their arms around her to comfort her.

They were hoping for a perfect program. They practiced and practiced. But all of their efforts could not do it. But in the girl's pain, we saw God's love as the children comforted her.

So God spoke loudly through our children, not in perfect singing, but in flaws and pain. He shows us through them how He feels about us. In spite of our flaws, He loves us in our pain. We can try hard and do our best, but we cannot get to God, He comes to us.
