In this season of joy and celebration, it is easy to forget that not all are experiencing comfort & joy. There are the obvious who have fallen on hard times and lost their jobs and have no means to celebrate. Help them!!
There are those who are experiencing their first holiday season without their wife, mother, brother, son or lover etc……..Love & support them with prayer.
There are those who are in the grips of pain or illness or depression…..visit and love them. They do not need your presents (although a gift can be nice), they need your presence.
And if you are celebrating Christmas this year with a job, money in the bank, a car in the driveway, food in the refrigerator etc. Think of how you can extend yourself towards someone who is not experiencing the abundance that you are. It just may save a life or make one…….you just don’t know.
At all times and in all ways be THANKFUL…….God is near!!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge him,
And he will direct your path.”
