“for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”Philippians 4:11 NIV
As you count down the days to Christmas, take a minute to focus on what is important and in the craziness continue to refocus on your Creator.
It is His love you are celebrating.
This miraculous gift of the Son, this unquenchable love of the Father, this daily guide of the Spirit.
Instead of replaying past moments or creating perfect scenarios in your head of the near future, let it be what it will be.
Enjoy the imperfections of this day and those to come.
Know that everything “being perfect” will not create the feeling of fulfillment you are looking for.
You are looking for love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness…. and these are fruits of the Spirit (not fruits of the season).
May you be filled with the Heavenly Peace of God’s Spirit as you walk among the complicated chaos of the humans around you.
