I love Christmas. I love decorating, planning, listening to Christmas music and thinking about what I might be able to give to the special people in my life. It is not so much about the specific purchase. Rather, it is about the special person and the opportunity to once again let them know I love them.
This past year has likely been a year for you like no other.
However, this time might also have brought some unexpected blessings.
As you enter the Christmas season my prayer is that you will be looking at the Lord of your circumstances and not just your circumstances. Reflect on them, learn from them and perhaps even mourn them, but remember that God is Lord of all and that includes being Lord over whatever we are each going through. Give thanks to Him for everything and remember His love endures forever!
Monday: Jesus is the reason for the season. Jesus came to the world to save the world, and that includes you. Don’t ever take this for granted. Be thankful and praise Him.
“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 9:1
Tuesday: Jesus has been with you during this year of COVID-19. Name at last 10 things you are thankful for. Tell God and thank Him.
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” Psalm 107
Wednesday: Jesus is our hope. Remember to thank Him.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Thursday: Jesus is our joy. Remember to thank Him.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
Friday: Merry Christmas! Today, as you spend time with loved ones, albeit virtually, let them see your love expressed through our Savior Jesus Christ.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
Wishing you a blessed Christmas!
