He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10 NIV 

Life moves quickly from one moment to the next and we’re not always ready to welcome the season of joy. We become busy in holiday routines and forget how to find perfect peace. But, God readies us to discover peaceful calm. He leads us to the manger. And, when we have been humbled by the presence of His love, He opens our hearts to prepare for Christmas. 

Now, more than ever, we need to remember; Christmas is so much more than wrapped presents under the tree. God wraps the gift of our Savior and offers us the present of His presence in our lives. 

Jesus brought light to the darkness when He was delivered to the world and held by the strength of the Father. We can put our HOPE in Him and patiently wait to feel calmed by His peace, if we open our hearts and learn how it feels to be still. 

If we reflect on the “reason for the season”, God will bless us. He will help us find content for today and strength for tomorrow. He will remind us why Christmas peace will come from the Savior, if we accept His offering of love and humble our hearts to find it. 

Dear God, Thank you for moments to slow down, so we will feel the presence of Your peace and recognize the offering of Your everlasting love. Fill us with strength for today and HOPE for tomorrow, as we wait to welcome Jesus and open our hearts to the greatest GIFT of Your amazing Son. Amen
