Coffee for Your Heart-Immanuel- God with Me

 

By Susie Teramura

 

Mantle lined

with lights,

And greens,

Tiny glass

red balls,

Mirror my

Warped Image,

 

Eyes wander

Piece by piece,

Shepherds, Wise Men

Camels and sheep

The Nativity,

 

It tells

The story,

It tells

My story,

And what He

Did for me

 

“And He

Will be called

Immanuel

God with us.”

 

God with me,

God beside,

God coming near.

 

The God,

Named Love

Setting up

His tent in

My heart,

Permanent and

For good.

 

Forever in

The middle,

Forever mine,

 

My kinsman redeemer,

He spreads His

Garment over me,

 

Protecting,

Providing,

Taking care

Of things

I can’t,

 

And now,

I have no

Thing to fear,

No reason to

Be afraid.

 

No

Thing is

Too big

Too hard, too broken

Too impossible,

For the One who

Stands beside me,

The One who

Makes His home

Inside me.

 

Now I am a safe.

He has

Made a way,

He is the way.

For me

 

Staring at

The manger,

Porcelain

Baby wrapped

In rags,

Wrapped

In love,

And crowned

In light.

 

This baby,

Precious Immanuel

“God with us”

God with me

That’s my story.

 

Matthew 1:23 (NLT)

 

“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!

She will give birth to a son,

And they will call him Immanuel,

Which means ‘God is with us.’”

  1. The line that struck me was “taking care of things I can’t ” — I am so, so thankful that God watches over, cares for and is working in all my loved ones — — thanks to you, for not being too tired to give a Christmas Eve gift to us all — wondering if you were looking at my mom’s manger — love you
