How are you doing this week my dear friend? Are you ready for Christmas? Is your home decorated? Are the cookies and other goodies made? Are the presents bought, wrapped and placed under the tree? If your answer is no to any of these questions, don’t worry. You’re not alone. It’s been a busy month for me as I am sure it is for you.
As busy as it is, I encourage you to take some time for yourself this week and prepare your heart for the season by reflecting on the birth of Jesus. Start with God’s promise of a savior.
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch,
King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.
In his days Judah will be saved
and Israel will live in safety.
This is the name by which he will be called:
The Lord Our Righteous Savior.
