Preparing Our Hearts

Preparing Our Hearts

We’re a month away from celebrating Jesus’ birth. For many, this will be a month of holiday preparation, spending, and schedules crowded with events. For others, this will be a month of loneliness, regret, and tears. Wherever this holiday season finds you, Jesus beckons you to come to His side and enter it with Him. He brings a heavenly perspective to earthly activities, soothes the aching heart, and reminds us of the whole purpose of His coming, to bring life—life characterized by God’s presence and light—to the frenzied, helpless masses.

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. —John 1:4

Prayer: Jesus, thank You for coming, filled with life itself, to offer life to all of us. May we seek You as the source of life. As bearers of Your life, help us to live the life You came to give us. May our lives testify of You during holiday and end-of-year pressures. In Your name, we pray, amen.
