As we get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, it is so easy to get our eyes off the Lord. We need to guard ourselves from the busyness of life and cherish our quiet moments with the One we worship and adore.
Amidst all the joyful activity of exchanging presents and meeting family and friends, Christmas can be a stressful time. Many of us have heavy demands at work to wrap things up for the year end. Some of us are involved in Christmas pageants at church or special events planned around the season. Then there are family get togethers that depend so much on the weather being in our favor. Finally there is the pressure of how we are going to pay for all of this festive fun.
The Christmas angels brought the message of “Peace on earth, good will toward men.” The key to peace is found in keeping our eyes firmly focused upon the Prince of Peace. We have to be careful not to become so caught up in everything we have to do, that we forget to take time out of every day to spend it with Him. There is a place of peace and tranquility in Him that we cannot find anywhere else!
May you and your family a wonderful Christmas together. And may the Lord bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you, during this exciting time of the year and in the weeks and months ahead. My prayer for you is that 2017 will be an exciting year of God’s goodness and favor!
You are holy, dear saint!
