My day of departure from Johannesburg was a rainy day across the country. When we'd reached our cruising altitude, we were high above the clouds, the view looking down was amazing. Beautiful brilliant white fluffy clouds everywhere looked so peaceful, a view far removed from the damaging storms that raged below.
I often wonder what God sees when he looks down on this world he created. So much mayhem and violence. So much depression and despair. Is there any hope in a world that seems to be slipping into darkness?
The Christmas story is indeed one such story. It is a message of hope, peace and love. Our God on high looked down from above and saw passed the fluffy clouds and saw a world in desperate need of a saviour.
Will you be the candle bearer to show that light to the world? Will you carry the hope and strength that there is in the message of the new birth? God waits on us to be the real spirit of Christmas to those around us.
