You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Isaiah 26: 3 NIV

Life moves quickly! As Christmas approaches, we often feel rushed, overwhelmed and stressed by what hasn’t been done. We allow ourselves to be robbed of peace and need to be reminded that God is present in our lives. 

God prepares us for Christmas. He readies us to welcome the Savior and humbles the heart of our need. He shows us how to slow down, so we will find calm and discover WHY we need Jesus. 

God sent His Son to bring hope for the future. As we consider His gift to the world, we recognize our need for peace. It is not found in the hectic moments of our lives. And it will never provide what we need, if we don't know where to find it. 

Jesus longs for us to be filled with perfect peace that passes all understanding. He invites us to trust in Him and leave the darkness behind. He shines His light of His love where we will discover God's plan for our days. And, He shows us how it feels to be grateful. 

We must take time to reflect on this season of love. God will fill us with strength and we WILL find content, if we welcome His peace. Christmas is so much more than a day to celebrate. It is precious time to open our hearts much wider, so we will receive the Perfect Gift which has already been given. 

Dear God, Thank you for moments to be silenced by the presence of Your love. Quiet our weary thoughts of wonder, so we will recognize how lucky we are to be loved by You. And, help us find peace, as we welcome the Savior with a grateful heart of praise. Amen
