15 Reflect

As the Christmas season moves forward at a rapid pace, let’s be intentional about taking some time of reflection with our family and friends. Reflect on favorite and happy Christmas memories. Reflect of some of the hilarious gifts you have given or received over the years. Reflect on your favorite Christmas movies or recipes. Reflect on God’s blessings from the past year. Reflect on His faithfulness. One thing to stop reflecting on is past hurts and mistakes. Choose to reflect on what is good, and choose to forget the frustrations.

25 words day 14

Joyfulness is a deep sense of delight mixed with an unexplainable peace within our hearts. It transcends circumstances and is a fruit of God’s Spirit. The apostle Paul told early believers to “Rejoice in the Lord always.” We may not be able to rejoice in every circumstance, but we can always find joy in God’s goodness and mercy. May the joy of the Lord be your strength this Season, as you rejoice in the celebration of Jesus, Immanuel, God with us.

Walk – 25 Positive Words, Day 13

25 words day 13

In grade school, our teachers told us to “Walk, don’t run” when we were in the hallways. As a child, we wanted to run – we wanted to get there fast! In many ways, like a child, we want things to happen fast and on our time table. Walking takes patience, and takes time. As believers in Christ, we never walk alone. God has given us His spirit. There’s nothing more beautiful than walking with God, holding His hand and patiently waiting on His timing.

Psalm 37:23-24 reminds us, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will not fall for He holds them by the hand.”

Shine the light of the gospel in your texts and social media and share the hope that Jesus brings.
