You'll find the Messiah in the mess.

Matthew 2:13-23 is the often untold “second chapter” of the Christmas story. It’s the part where Joseph, Mary, and Jesus flee to Egypt to avoid Jesus’s execution at the hand of a power-hungry King… The calm & bright of the Christmas story is shattered by the chaos of life, and the hope and promise of the manger feels forever away. The story reassures that Jesus’s experience is the human experience. The Messiah knows what it’s like to endure the messiness of this word. Jesus was a refugee; and he was homeless; he was betrayed by friends; he was falsely accused by authorities. Jesus understands your mess because he was born into the same messy world. So wherever you are and whatever you’re facing, you can find the Messiah right with you in your mess.
