During this holiday season, we get such a mix of feelings. On one hand, we have celebrations where family and friends gather and enjoy the festivities and the company of one another; on the other hand, you have the reminders of those whom you’ve lost throughout the years. Some reminders will bring a smile, but others are fresh, and the pain can still be felt. As a kid, I was excited because of the gifts, but as I grew older, it became more about the people. This season, don’t get too caught up in the hustle to buy gifts, remember that it’s about God’s unimaginable love for us that gives us a reason to celebrate. His love is so big that He wanted to walk among us in the flesh, and then give us a way into the everlasting. If you call yourself a Christian, but haven’t made a whole-hearted commitment to Him, won’t you decide today to turn your face towards Him and honor Him with your life? Life is too short to waste it on things that don’t matter.
"Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;" Isaiah 55:6 "For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's." Romans 14:8
