I’m wrecked! Derailed! A goner! Why? Because of a little “bump” in the road that changed everything….my first grandchild! Life has been forever transformed. My priorities are altered. And my heart? My heart literally overflows with a love like I’ve never known. I ache when I’m away from him and joy fills every part of my being when I hold him close in my arms. My thoughts and dreams have shifted and oh, when I look in those precious little eyes I see hope for the future. Yes, this MiMi is a wreck! And it’s a great wrecked!
You know? It occurs to me that God knew that I’d be wrecked by this new little miracle, but even more importantly He knew that you and I would be wrecked when he sent the miracle of His son…a little “bump” that changed EVERYTHING! The birth and death of Jesus forever transforms lives. His sacrifice shows us love greater than we’ve ever known and priorities are changed when we accept His gift of that overflowing love. Thoughts and dreams shift from being ours to becoming more like Him. We ache for Him when we drift away and the joy we experience when we’re held in the arms of Jesus defies understanding. Yes, Jesus came to make our lives a wreck. To stop us in our tracks, spin us around, and put us on a new course. a course that leads us to Him. And when we look into the eyes of Jesus we too see hope. But not just hope for the future. We see precious hope for eternity. Yes, I’ve been wrecked by Jesus and that’s the most wonderful wrecked of all!
