The lines in the stores are ridiculous! Didn’t that woman see me about to pick up that sweater? Oh no, I forgot to get a present for little Johnny!

Aunt Betsy just called to see if she can bring the cat with her to the family dinner. NO!! I’m allergic to cats – you know that!

If the holidays could just come and go already!

We are all feeling the pressure this time of the year. You are not alone!

Today’s passage reminds us to stay calm! The enemy is waiting for you to let your guard down so he can pounce on your emotions. Refuse to give in to it. Refuse to lose your focus. The holidays are about love and family. Let that be your focus! LOVE and FAMILY!!

Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

1 Peter 5:9

The holidays only come once a year. Soon they will be over and life will be full of other hectic schedules and deadlines. Sorry but I must be honest!

Stay focused on God, he will keep you from falling. He will help you through it. He will help you maneuver what appears to be chaos. Truth is…. Your life is NOT chaotic! Your faith is just being stretched. Hang in there!

Until Next Time,
