Showing Up Small

And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

Luke 2:7

2020has been a year for the books. We won’t forget it. We’ve all experienced trauma this year. We’ve all experienced loss. I’ve spent many days asking God to fix it; pleading with God to fix it; screaming at God to fix it.

I want Him to show up big because I know He can. Beneath my noise, God whispers.

Where are you God?

The friend who stopped by just to see you?

That was Me.

Where are you God?

The baby who was born in a stable to poor parents, who came to save the world?

That was Me.

God can show up big, but He very often shows up small. In the most important moment in history, He showed up small. If you’re feeling alone and overlooked this holiday season, know that God IS with you. He’s just showing up small.
