Moment in Time



Agendas, lists, plans—we all have them. We make preparations for an hour, a day, a month, a lifetime. And we move forward, attempting to reject interferences that threaten to dismantle our plans. 

Like many of us who marry, Mary and Joseph dreamed of a perfect life together. But an unexpected pregnancy changed their idea of a “normal” existence. One moment in time altered their plans. They followed God as He guided their steps. Responses of praise and thanksgiving flowed from their hearts.  

The shepherds out in the fields were guarding their sheep. Suddenly angels appeared and disclosed an amazing happening in Bethlehem—a special baby born. An unexpected event changed a night at work. One moment in time reshaped their lives. They followed God as He guided their steps. Responses of praise and thanksgiving flowed from their hearts.

The wise men or magi were learned men and knew the Scriptures. They didn’t miss the sign from heaven—a star—that proclaimed the birth of a Savior. This moment in time fulfilled the prophecies they have studied. They followed the star and allowed God to guide their steps in search of the Christ Child. Responses of praise and thanksgiving flowed from their hearts.

What are your plans? Do you know the Scriptures? Would you allow God to interrupt your agenda?

Don’t miss a moment in time that could change your life forever. Trust God to guide your steps. Let Him lead you to the Christ Child. And offer praise and thanksgiving. 


“For now You number my steps,
You do not observe my sin.  Job 14:16 (NASB)

Follow the steps of the godly instead, and stay on the right path,  Proverbs 2:20 (TLB)

The steps of good men are directed by the Lord. He delights in each step they take.  Psalm 37:23 (TLB)

“But oh, that my people would listen to me! Oh, that Israel would follow me, walking in my paths!  Psalm 81:13 (TLB)

I cling to your commands and follow them as closely as I can. Lord, don’t let me make a mess of things.  Psalm 119:31(TLB)


Then Jesus said to the disciples, “If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.  Matthew 16:24 (TLB)
