Christmas music is usually light.
Christmas music is usually happy.
Christmas music is usually jolly.
This Christmas song is powerful.
This Christmas song is heavy.
This Christmas song gives me goosebumps.
Christmas is a jolly time.
But it is a serious time as well.
It is when our Saviour was born, only to die for sins.
When you think of the weight of that moment.
The moment that Christ took His first breath in a manger.
The moment the world changed.
It is powerful.
All of this time, God knowingly gave us His son.
Because of His love for us.
Mary, exhausted, gazing at her newborn son.
Fearful for the life that lay before Him.
Surrendered to be a servant to her God, no matter the cost.
This Christmas I want to remember what the true meaning of this holiday season is.
