The Rush is On

It was wonderful to see you all in November and I hope you had a wonderul Thanksgiving.  Here’s a little holiday devotional for you.  I’ll see the North Dallas PWC on December 15.  Looking forward to it!

Holiday Devotion:

Thanksgiving is over (hope you had a good one) and now we are in an all out sprint toward Christmas. Do you have your shopping done? Are your Christmas cards finished? Surely you have your decorations up by now! As we run toward the holidays with anticipation and hope, we need to remember to run to the Lord with the same type of fervor.

It is tempting to brush aside spiritual things during this time of the year. I mean who has time, when we have so much to do and a long list of activities to accomplish each day as we head toward the big day. Seeking the Lord in the quiet place may be just what we need to calm our anxious thoughts and our overwhelmed minds. His word can help us focus on the bigger picture and the beauty of the hope we have in Him. Looking to Him for direction can bring order to our normally chaotic schedule.

This past Sunday we celebrated the first week of Advent as we anticipate and look forward to Christmas day. We lit the candle of hope, signifying Christ as the hope of the world. May we find our hope in Christ as we run to Him throughout this holiday season. He lovingly welcomes us with arms open wide. Enjoy His warm embrace. “You are my portion, O Lord; I have promised to obey your words. I have sought your face with all my heart; Be gracious to me according to your promise.” Psalm 119:57,58
