Merry Christmas to You!

It is unbelievable how fast this year has flown by, and as we all know, there have certainly been a variety of challenges, many of which we are still trying to navigate. But this verse brings us much comfort…

John 16:33 NLT, “… Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

Jesus has already overcome the trials and sorrows of this world. Nothing we face is beyond His control. We do not always understand why things happen as they do, or why God allows it, but we do know He has a plan. During this Christmas season, and always, we can find rest, peace, and safety in Jesus, as we celebrate Him for who He is, our Savior and Lord.

Jesus chose to come to Earth, live here, die for our sins, and rise again with all power in His hands. Through His sacrifice, we can have life more abundantly. A life not based only on material things, but based on the joy and hope that we have in Him. I pray that joy and hope that we have in Jesus, would fill your heart during this Christmas season and beyond. May you and your family have a Merry Christmas!

Father,

Thank you for the gift you have given to us in your son, Jesus. There is no gift more precious than Him. Thank you for your love and protection. As this year comes to an end, we trust you to continue to light our paths and make them straight. Help us to choose Jesus everyday in the way we live our lives, and in the decisions we make. Give us wisdom to know what is best. Thank you for who you are to us.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.

P.S. I’ll be returning in January. Be safe, blessings!
