With all the busyness of Christmas time, and life in general, we can easily become overwhelmed and exhausted. Then we wonder why we don’t feel joyful when we finally get to the big day of celebration. As Christians, we MUST take time out from all the doing to stop and be in God’s presence. When we genuinely praise and worship Him, our souls fill with the joy we were previously chasing after.
Questions for further thought:
1. What helps you put aside distractions and focus your praise on our Savior?
2. When was the last time your heart was able to worship without hinderance?
Challenge: Don’t let another Christmas go by without taking time to praise our God for His extraordinary gift of salvation through Jesus. If you’re struggling with the words, choose a Psalm of praise to meditate on or read aloud. Have a JOYFUL Christmas!!
