I used to love Christmas and the days leading up to it. All the lights, the activities, the parties, the sweets….but when December 26th rolled around, I found myself sad, empty and depressed. Why?
Now, as i get the older, i find myself enjoying the days leading up to Christmas less and less. And in some ways, when December 26th rolls around, I find myself relieved and ready to get back on track and seeking the Lord. Why?
What is Christmas about? my devotional this morning said that
Christmas is a celebration of God’s perfect gift.
The reason that I like Christmas less and less of the older is because that is not what Christmas becomes about in this world and often in my life.
As I think on the statement from my devotional and get ready to head to my hometown for Christmas, my prayer is that this statement and John 3:16. becomes the meditations of my heart. for when this happens, there will no saddens, guilt, or emptiness come December 26th!
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life.
Merry Christmas! May your days be merry and bright with the meditations of John 3:16!
