It’s Time to Get Ready

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. (Colossians 3:2)
The best place to start is by preparing our hearts for Christmas. We hear all about the hustle and bustle, we feel the joy and sometimes even some sorrow. Whether we face the holiday with excitement or sadness, readiness or overwhelm, we can bring it all to Jesus. And may we experience the gift that was ours from the beginning of time for all eternity.
Dear God, please prepare my heart for Christmas. I long to focus on the gifts You’ve given me more than anything else. Help me not get wrapped up in the must-do’s, to-do’s, and out-do’s of the season, and instead remember that You are with me. Amen

I recently read a five day devotion plan and I felt it would be fitting to share it with you over the next couple of weeks, leading up to the most important day of our lives, the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I hope and pray over the next couple of weeks you are encouraged, uplifted and blessed by this set of devotions. I know I was. 

Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord! 

Merry Christmas!
