Stressing What The Holiday Is About
Ahhhh the holidays are upon us! Christmas presents to buy, Parties to attend, homes to decorate. Donâ€™t you just love this time of year? (Pause) Some people love it. Others hate it. Thereâ€™s so much to do, our normal routine gets thrown off by all the extras and the stress of being around family ad friends weâ€™re not normally with can really get to you if youâ€™re not careful. So let me tell you what Iâ€™m doing this holiday season: Iâ€™m being very careful not to plan a bunch of extra stuff and Iâ€™m intentionally taking some time to pull away, get quiet and just reflect on what the holidays are really all aboutâ€¦
Christmas is about celebrating a time when God became flesh and entered into our world so He could have a relationship with us. This childâ€™s name is Jesus, Immanuel, God with us. I hope you have the sense that God really is with you during this Holiday Season. Heâ€™s right thereâ€¦waiting for you to slow down long enough to spend some time together.
Why not take a few minutes and do that today?
