Christmas time can really wear me out.
I try to pace myself. Some things I have to just push aside those things hat seem less important, but they all seem important. And sometimes, I have to get my Super Santa costume out and put it on.
This week I left my walking cane somewhere. I was trying to remember, Where did I go yesterday? It was only yesterday. I did find it; I had left it in a store shopping.
As I write this, my husband is looking for his debit card, trying to remember where he might’ve left it yesterday. Why is it so hard to remember what we did yesterday?
Okay, he found it. He left it at a food drive-thru.
By nature I overload my life so much. This season is a good time to practice saying the word “No”. For me, I need some kind of order to stay forced into saying, “No.” By nature, I want to do it all. Which can stress me out and cause me to be late.
How do I find order? How do we refocus on what life and Christmas really is about this season? For me, I turn on my worship and turn my heart to focus on Christ. Getting in His presence changes circumstances. I talk to Him and listen for His answer.
This brings me ORDER. This brings peace to my mind, body and soul. As I ring in the New Year, in the midst of seasonal business, when there are many yes’s and no’s, I choose to slow down and seek His face first in all things first
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
In His Grip,
