"Glory to God in the highest heaven,and on earth peace to those on whom His favor rests."
Luke 2:14 (NIV)
Are you caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday?
Or is the flurry of activity~worthy of a snowplow~one that piles up in your life all year long?
Are you in need of a "silent night"?
I pray that time of resting in His presence for you...silence in the daytime or in the midnight clear...His peace drifting over you like a wispy snow.
Does your need for peace go even beyond that?
Maybe Christmas with all of its trappings buries you in the depths...and you somehow can't summon up the joy required?
I'm praying for you to hear the voice of the angel through the chaos and noise that surrounds you saying, "Fear not." For on that night the Prince of Peace was born...the Prince of your peace...and "Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come...." (Habakkuk 2:3) I pray for your Christmas to be wrapped in the assurance that "The LORD gives strength to His people; the LORD blesses His people with peace." (Psalm 29:11) May you feel His strength, peace, and presence today.
