December 21, Today’s thought – No Room

Good Morning

Some of the saddest words on earth are

“We don’t have room for you.”

Jesus knew the sound of those words.
He was still in Mary’s womb when the innkeeper said,
“We don’t have room for you” (Luke 2:7).

And when he was hung on the cross,
wasn’t the message one of utter rejection?
“We don’t have room for you in our world.”

Even today Jesus is given the same treatment.
He goes from heart to heart, asking if he might enter.
Every so often, he’s welcomed.
Someone throws open
the door of his or her heart and invites him to stay.
And to that person Jesus gives this great promise,
“In my Father’s house are many rooms” (John 14:2).

What a delightful promise he makes us!
We make room for him in our hearts….
And he makes room for us in his house!

Make Room. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
