As you countdown 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.
“for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”Philippians 4:11 NIV
Instead of replaying past moments or creating perfect scenarios in your head of the near future, be here.
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).
Give yourself and those around you lots and lots of grace here and now.
Have a be-present-and-filled-with-the Spirit day.
