Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe after all we’ve projected
A child in a manger
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mothers shawl
Just a child
Is this who we’ve waited for?
Cause how many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
How many Gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
As we get closer to Christmas, I am starting to reflect more on why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. I think about how amazing it is that God sent Jesus to save us in the most unexpected way. I think about how Mary and Joseph must have felt throughout their journey. This song is a great reminder of how Jesus came to us in the most unlikely of circumstances. Oftentimes, during this season, we never stop to think about these things. Take a break and listen to this song today and reflect about the real reason for the season.
