Our King is coming!
Are you ready?
Prepared for His presence?
Or are you distracted with your to-do lists? Traditions? Expectations?
For some strange reason, I rather doubt that Martha Stewart is showing up at your house with coordinating ribbons and bows and a high level of perfectionism; unless of course, you care to mimic her actions and invite her in.
Save yourself the bother and bless your family instead with a sweet countenance that radiates the love of Christ. So, if you still have gifts to wrap, feel free to throw them in a brown paper bag, stick a bow on it and call it a day. I am sure they won’t mind. Trust me. I have been there, both from a child’s perspective and as an adult who has a (recovering), type-A personality!
Whatever it is that you are fretting about or focusing on…I encourage you to dwell on Christ.
Watch this moving video below, and it will put things into perspective. In fact, I watched it last year at this time and it pierced my heart, plus it helped me to stop whining about my situation. I also watched it again at Easter, and my heart was grieved for how we respond all too often towards our Savior. Sometimes we are asleep and distracted with our own kingdom.
So today I am determined to keep my eyes focused on Him.
Clinging to Him.
Living for Him as I respect and submit to my husband and as I minister to my little lambs.
I challenge you to do the same as well. Your soul will thank you. (And you can thank me later for the encouragement!) 🙂
Merry Christmas sister!
