We get so caught up in the cares of this world, in the pain that we are feeling in the moment, that we forget to be grateful for the most amazing gift that has ever been given to us. A gift we don't deserve and that is better than anything we could ever imagine.
We get so wrapped up in gifts, in the traditions that we have made on earth, that we start to forget what Christmas is really about.
Christmas is about God's son coming to earth. He was born in a humble place for us. He lived to die, to take away our sins.
This year, as we struggle with health, finances, or whatever may be on our minds, let us put our focus on him.
This year, instead of thinking of the gifts or the pressure surrounding Christmas, let us find the light and joy of the season. Let us be thankful for the greatest gift ever. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 1 John 4:14 By Bethany Acker, Co-Author of No Longer Broken
Christmas is a beautiful time because it holds promises and hope.
Jesus came to earth for us, to live and die for us. He rose again and offers us everlasting life.
Because of God's power and grace, evil will never win. Death is not the end.
'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. Psalm 112:6
There is so much to be thankful for this Christmas season and always!
