Amidst the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, did you get everyone the perfect gift? Perhaps you are second guessing yourself and are contemplating exchanging the gift for a more perfect gift. It typically seems to be hard to get everyone the perfect gift, unless they give you a wish list, of course.
Preparing for the gift exchange can really take the joy out of the Christmas season. Prior to going shopping, we really have to make a strenuous effort to not lose the focus of what Christmas is all about. Jesus seems to get lost somewhere between the 50% off sale rack, the overcrowded store parking lot and the bumper to bumper traffic.
Nevertheless, one of the best gifts we can give ourselves and our loved ones is the gift of peace. Unfortunately, peace is one thing that is hard to find during a time that should be completely centered around peace. After all, the minute Jesus came to life marked the birth of true and eternal peace available for all who would receive it. Will you make a commitment to spend the remainder of the Christmas season basking in the presence of the Lord?
Lord, I thank You for ushering peace into the world as You temporarily transferred Your citizenship from heaven to earth. As I drink deeply of You, I am certain that Your perfect peace will settle in my heart and over flow to all those who come into my presence.
