Reflections on Trek to the Manger, chapters 3 & 4
It’s that season again – the children’s Christmas program at church. We rehearsed yesterday during Sunday School, which means those lively songs from Group Publishing’s Bethlehem Bound are still dancing around in my brain-space. The one that seems to be stuck on repeat this morning is the one that testifies:
I’m looking for a star to follow.
“Many of us are in a holding pattern today. We’re feeling the need to move on, move out, or move forward, but we’re waiting. We’re waiting for God to give us a sign. We (like the Wise Men) want a star to follow, too!” -Trek to the Manger, p. 12
Chapter 3 sets the stage for the adventure-to-come by asking you to “take inventory of the things in your life that shine light, bring joy, elicit smiles, and create energy… this list is where you’ll catch your first glimpse of the Star – the Light of the World” (p. 8-9).
What are you waiting for? Follow the good stuff in your life to the Source. Ask God to, slowly and surely, replace the heaviness of life with the lightness of His Light today!
