    Life Gets Busy

    Monday, November 27, 2017

    Christmas Day is only 4 weeks from today and I know how hectic life gets during this time of the year. Between life at home and life at the church, it can become very overwhelming. As a result, you may go through days where you feel overwhelmed and like God has forgotten you.

    Let my love stream through you, washing away fear and distrust. A trusting response includes Me in your thoughts as you consider strategies to deal with a situation. My continual Presence is a promise, guaranteeing that you never have to face anything alone. My children teethe on the truth that I am always with them, yet they stumble around in a stupor, unaware of My loving Presence all around them. How that grieves Me!

    When you walk through a day in trusting dependence on Me, My aching heart is soothed. Gently bring your attention back to Me whenever it wanders away. I look for persistence–rather than perfection–in your walk with me.”

    It is easy for us to get caught up in everyday life and ministry and go through days trying to do it all alone. Don’t let ministry get in the way of your daily time with the Lord. Keep things balanced and keep your trust and dependence on Him at the forefront, especially during these next few busy weeks. After all, let’s remember the “Reason for the Season.”
