Let there be peace, and joy on earth!

Remember feeling like a kid at Christmas? You couldn’t sleep and every thump was probably Santa Claus. Now we hear a car backfiring and we’re startled, or we turn on the news and see disaster after disaster, another shooting, another fire, and another attack…

With the holidays underway, it’s important to choose happiness, peace and joy despite what’s going on in the news and around us. Be alert, yes, but always remember that Jesus overcame the world and He wants us to have child-like faith. He also said to Be of good cheer. Ways you can do this include:

  • Turn the news off and read Psalm 37 and Psalm 91 as a reminder that God is with us and we’re not to fear what’s going on around us but to trust God
  • Pray with our families and neighbors and pray for our nation, the world and all those in need
  • Find happy activities to remind you of your childhood: sledding, making hot cocoa and cookies, listening to holiday music

By turning off the news – which can ellicit fear, and tapping into what God and Jesus have promised us (protection, grace, mercy, covering and wisdom), we can better enjoy the holidays and have that child-like faith as we rest in God’s promises!

Volunteer Work: If you’re thinking about volunteering over Christmas, we have a few ideas for you. You can donate clothes to a homeless shelter, send a donation to a confirmed charity such as the Salvation Army, you can give out meals, give kids gifts over Christmas, help the Post Office with Dear Santa programs, and consider spending time at a nursing home as a volunteer. Our work is unto the Lord and when we give to the least of these, we give to Jesus…
