I have to admit that as I'm struggling through another busy week before Christmas break (this time fighting a cold or sinus infection), I'm having a little trouble finding some wisdom to share with you. Fortunately, it is not my wisdom we're relying on! ;-)
This is one of those times of year when everything gets crazy busy and I start to feel overwhelmed.
I'm sure I'm not alone.
That's why when I saw this in my devotional, I thought it was perfect for today.
Spurgeon goes on to say, "If you set the Lord before you, there is fullness of joy in God's every attribute. There is heaven in every glimpse of Jesus' face, overwhelming bliss in every drop of Jehovah's everlasting love. You will not fail. You will not be discouraged."
Let everything go.
All those distractions, pressures, and deadlines.
Or the added pressures of the Christmas season.
Shopping, wrapping, decorating, and baking...
Obviously, we can't ignore those things completely.
We must take care of our responsibilities.
I think the lesson here is that we not allow those things to burden us, to become our focus.
Isaiah 41:10 says, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
Have a blessed day!
