Have you had your JOY JUICE today? Drinking a generous portion daily helps to get your heart ready for the holidays!
Do you look forward to Christmas or do you kinda dread the holidays? There are several reasons I’ve heard people give as to why they don’t look forward to Christmas.
Reasons such as:
- Dreading the shopping and…the bills that come afterwards.
- Some are grieving and say there are too many memories of those who are no longer with us.
- Others complain that Christmas has become too commercial and people miss the real meaning.
- And the fact is, we often do get so busy with parties, activities and gatherings that we’re exhausted by the time Christmas Day gets here!
Those are all pretty good reasons and each one holds some truth. But I’d like to issue a challenge for this upcoming Christmas season:
Let’s SAVOR the SAVIOUR!
Let’s be determined to drink in every drop of joy that comes from celebrating His goodness; bask in the love of God for sending His Son to earth in the form of a newborn baby…knowing that He would sacrifice His very life to save you & me and give us eternal life!
Isaiah 9:6 says: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…”
May we refrain from dreading the holiday season! Let’s celebrate God’s faithfulness and determine to SAVOR the SAVIOR….joyously!
