Christmas Holidays can be hectic and stressful if I allow. That is in direct conflict with the announcement at Jesus’ birth. “And the angel said …I bring you good tidings of great joy...” Sometimes I have to stop and have a talk with myself and remember Joy is a birthright that Jesus brought me from heaven! To continue without joy is unacceptable; I remind myself that anything less is to treat the blessings of God disgracefully.
Lord help me to trust in your grace and enjoy the joy I am promised.
