37 days of Christmas: day 15

One of my favorite stories in the Old Testament is about Elijah. In 1 Kings 19:9-12, it talks about how the Lord spoke to Elijah. He did not speak in a great wind, earthquake, or a fire...

...but in a gentle whisper

With the stormy winds today, I was reminded of how much I love this story, and how God has been speaking to me like that recently. I expect Him to come in the great wind, the earthquake and the fire, yet He always comes in the gentle voice. 

That is how Jesus came into the world, not with fanfare or fancy celebrations, but with a quiet entrance.  

Take some time to listen for Him today.
