So maybe it’s time to just take a step back out of the day and out of the hectic, to look at the big picture. Is it really all that worth getting anxious about? Is it really? Sometimes, we get a clearer view when we distance ourselves from the activities! Grab a cup of tea and breathe through the next moment. Sometimes if we step back just a bit, we can see the facade and maybe begin to remove some of the layers, just to lay it all out before ourselves and our Saviour, in these final days of our Advent season! What ploughs through that need not be so aggressive? Panic? Fear? Worry? Failure to get done what you so planned to get done? Christmas is not about what we do or how we do it or how much we can do? It’s about enjoying precious moments with family and friends through our imperfections. It’s about forgetting the deadlines, or at least placing them into proper perspective!
So hey! This busy day you’re in, it’s time for tea and refreshment. Take time to come before the Lord and Savior and in quiet moments just light a candle ~ just you and Him alone. Let His words be a Lamp to your feet and a light to your pathway of next steps. Ask for His counsel, act on His still, quiet voice and begin to peel away those things that shouldn’t be there cluttering up your beautiful Advent season.
“Tis a time for warm delights, and family traditions, memories and making more. Don’t let the sweet moments of the season dissipate into busy, chaotic schedules and fast paced rituals, just because! Find calm in His presence! Delight in His words and a new strength in His power!
So go ahead light that candle just between you and our Lord and find peace!
“Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”
