I read something this morning that I was blessed by & ordinarily I’d have tucked the accompanying thought away but felt I needed to write an impromptu post instead – I trust this will encourage some of you. (more…)

Be Born In Me

Happy Christmas, Everyone!

Especially if your experience of life going into Christmas (*Festival of the Christ*) this year is one of ‘manger mess’ be encouraged by this supreme song.

With love & blessings

“Be Born In Me”

Everything inside me cries for order, everything inside me wants to hide
Is this shadow of an angel or a warrior? If God is pleased with me, why am I so terrified?

Someone tell me I am only dreaming, somehow help me see with Heaven’s eyes

And before my head agrees, my heart is on its knees…

Holy is He; blessed am I.

Be born in me, be born in me

Trembling heart, somehow I believe that You chose me

I’ll hold You in the beginning, You will hold me in the end

Every moment in the middle, make my heart Your Bethlehem

Be born in me

All this time we’ve waited for the promise, all this time You’ve waited for my arms

Did You wrap yourself inside the unexpected, so we might know that Love would go that far?

Be born in me, be born in me
Trembling heart, somehow I believe that You chose me

I’ll hold You in the beginning, You will hold me in the end

Every moment in the middle, make my heart Your Bethlehem

Be born in me

I am not brave
I’ll never be

The only thing my heart can offer is a vacancy

I’m just a girl

Nothing more

But I am willing, I am Yours

Be born in me, be born in me
I’ll hold You in the beginning, You will hold me in the end

Every moment in the middle, make my heart Your Bethlehem

Be born in me

Mairi has got a very low tolerance to cold feet; I could happily wear flip-flops all year round. Mairi is genuinely upset if the temperature of her feet drops by even a fraction of a degree below the average temperature of ‘slipper heaven’ whereas I couldn’t care less. (more…)
