This popped up as one of my memories on Facebook. I wrote it 6 years ago during a time of reflection on the Christmas Season. It’s easy to get caught up in all the ins and out of life’s struggles and forget. Forget the victory over all our struggles (anxiety, fear, etc.) has already been won. It was won so many years ago when our hero the Prince of Peace stepped in:
I really love a hero. Two of my favorite movies are Superman and The Lone Ranger. There is something about a story where everything seems lost and then the hero steps in and saves the day. I was thinking about that this morning. Christmas is all about the Hero of heroes stepping in. He stepped in our world in the most unsuspecting way and pulled off the greatest rescue of all, the rescue of our souls. Habakkuk 3:13-14 “You came out to deliver your people to save your anointed one. You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness you stripped him from head to foot. With his own spear you pierced his head…” What a victory! Brought to us on a night many years ago in the form of a little baby, who was announced by angels and worshiped by Shepherds. That is how our Hero stepped in…
You Stepped In
It seemed Hope was Gone and Darkness reigned,
All was lost in lives of pain.
Hearts were cold and lives undone.
Under oppression from the evil one.
Then You stepped in.
You stepped in one dark night
A hero to rescue us, to shine Your light.
You stepped in the most unlikely place.
You came to us in the most unlikely way.
This Baby born in a place so poor.
A King for all and Deliverer of our souls.
The One who came to set things right.
You stepped in that wonderful night.
We might have missed and not understood.
You lived your life here doing Good.
You healed the sick and showed us what was right.
You gave us all in giving up your life.
All hope seemed lost and darkness reigned,
All was lost in our lives of pain.
Death seemed to have won once again,
But You stepped in.
The Grave cannot hold The King of Kings
He is alive and Now living in me.
My life is changed and I am free.
Because You stepped in and rescued me.
