It’s the holidays. We have visions of cookie baking, present wrapping and hanging ornaments on the tree. Real life isn’t the vision though, and before you know it, the baby’s first Christmas ornament is broken, the cookies are burnt and you’re ordering pizza and praying for bedtime.
The question is, does this ruin it all for you or become an embraceable story- a funny memory and a reminder that Jesus is the only constant and true North star this season.
I know I have totes found 50 ways to fill my days to the max in a season where reflection and peaceful joy should prevail.
1 John 5:11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
What could be more peaceful than that? If you believe in the constant presence of a living God and his Son saving us all, then the rest begins to move into the back seat where it belongs.
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
