Love May Overflow


“There’s no room at the Inn” words that at Christmas Christians are familiar with and this week’s lectionary scriptures challenge us see this familiar phrase in a different way.

Is there room in your life for all God’s love?

Is there room in your heart in your life for overflowing Love, God’s love for us demonstrated by the birth of his son Jesus as a human?

What twist and turns is your life are taking you away from your spiritual centre, away from God?

What heights of excitement, reaches of ambition have you seeking mountain tops, rather than God?

What depth of depression, doubt and self-loathing keeps you from accepting God’s love?

 Make ye ready the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight.  Every valley shall be filled, And every mountain and hill shall be brought low; And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.  Luke 3: 4-6

Turn your life towards your spiritual centre;

Come down off the mountain tops be what God needs you to be;

Know that you are always worthy of God’s love.

God’s love is always overflowing in our lives if we make room.
