For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, And like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him. Isaiah 53:2

The all powerful God spoke and His word, like thunder, created from nothing the vast expanse of the universe. The swirling planets, His beloved humanity and beauty all created by the breath of Love. Mankind bursting into existence through the idea and spoken word of God. When encountered, knees cannot help but bow in awe and wonder to the One who created all and holds all. One glimpse of Him and from deep within the beholder, “Holy, Holy, Holy,” rings out. Eternity cannot contain His holiness or power.

The All-Powerful choosing the lowly for His procession and a manger for His throne. The One with ‘power over’ choosing ‘power under’ to lift from the dust the broken, the bruised and smoldering wicks. Gently coming, the procession leading to His coming taking place on a lonely and dusty road with a donkey, a young girl and a boy from a forgotten place. Unborn baby King of All riding on a lowly donkey symbolizing peace towards the beloved mankind. God tenderly coming to bring peace to the chaotic earth. Gentleness and servitude silencing the evil and corruption one heart at a time. Ravaged hearts allowing a tender God near.

The All Powerful choosing tenderness. Wrapping strength in gentleness and coming to the lowly ones, the broken ones, the crying ones, the despondent ones, the disappointed ones, the disillusioned ones, the hopeless ones, the lonely ones, the abused ones, the poor ones, the rejected ones and the lost ones. The Holy overcoming the darkness with tender love. The Holy and Tender One draping the unholy with His holiness making them whole. The God who IS love, non-threatening but all powerful coming with both the power to lift from the depths and the tenderness to comfort and heal. In powerful love, the Tender One came for us and still He comes.
