December 19–Let’s Count Down…and Calm Down…and Consider JESUS!

In five days from today it will be Christmas Eve.

Wow…yep, many of us may still have lots of things to do to prepare our homes for Christmas. (I still have pretty much everything to do…at least what I am going to do!)

How are you doing on preparing your heart? Really????

This would probably be a good time for each of us to take just a few extra minutes—right now—to take a deep breath as we count down to Christmas…and let ourselves calm down right in the midst of our still-have-to-do-lists…and calm down right in the midst of some personal sadness…or some personality struggle with those with whom we’ll be spending Christmas…and intentionally and actively consider Jesus…consider His love…consider His joy…consider His peace…consider His hope…consider His sacrifice…consider His utter humility…consider His total victory over sin and death!

The LORD our God gave His Son to us out of His incomparable, incomprehensible LOVE. Jesus came as a baby born to us…to die for us…to obliterate the power of sin and death over us…to give us eternal life with Him!!!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

So, let’s all Count Down…and Calm Down…and Consider Jesus…in this season and in every season of our lives!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
