It is amazing how time goes by so quickly. Christmas Day is almost here. Ten days and counting, in fact. So far I have been really loving this Christmas! I have been relaxed and just soaking everything in. Typically, I let myself get lost in the craziness and this year I can just relax and let Christmas happen. It is so nice to relax and just enjoy this time of year!
God knew I needed to slow down this Christmas and just take everything in. Every Christmas story, every Christmas Carol, every special moment. I have been loving it. I have been able to just trust God that He has everything under His control. He has taken care of us and blessed us with his hand.
It has been great to spend so much quality time with Walter too. We have definitely been using this time to grow even closer together. I am so very blessed.
The Scripture for today is 1 John 2:24-25 "As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. This promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life." God trumps us all when it comes to the greatest gift of all time. He gave us eternal life!
It has been two days in a row. Hopefully the beginning of great things. With Christmas coming towards us at the speed of light (or at least that is how it feels to me), it has my mind focused on how God humbled Himself for us. It has got me thinking about myself and whether I am as humble in my daily walk with Him. I know I would like to be humble but that is not always the case. I am blessed, God has given me so much! I am very thankful to Him for His gifts, but the question remains...what am I doing with everything He has given me? Could I be doing more? I think I could be doing more in some ways and need to cut back in others. I need to find a balance in my life. As we are entering a very busy season, just remember to take time for God. He is the reason for the season and He will help us remain balanced through the busy days to come.
The Scripture verse for today is Psalm 119:10 "With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments." Interesting how these verses seem to coincide with what I am talking about. This is a reminder to me to keep seeking God with all my heart and my balanced life will fall right into place.
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
