Every December I begin the month wanting to prepare. Not for the get-togethers with family and friends, or for all the baking or gift wrapping, but I want to prepare my heart.
I don’t want to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle and miss the most important part of this holy season.
The world is trying hard to make us forget. To not let us celebrate His birth. But for me, it’s about Jesus’ birth. Scripture says,
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7
Today, slow down and soak up the gift of Christmas. A baby born to save the world. Maybe you need a Silent Night.
Have a blessed Sunday!Pin It
