Dashing through the snow, in the family mini-van to Christmas parties and concerts we go. Christmas presents to buy and maybe the kids are starting to cry… It seems that we have a lot to do throughout this season. Do you ever feel like there is an endless list of things to do and even though you check it off it seems to get longer and longer?
How do you deal with those times when you feel really busy?
Isaiah 54:10 says:
For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed,
but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
God promises many things to us first is that he loves us and God will always be with us. The second is that God’s peace will never be removed. Even though there are many lists to check off and much dashing through the snow, and even though the world may be crazy God promises he is always there, his love never fails, and he will give us peace.
How has God given you peace? How has he quieted you and made you feel his presence and love?
God promises us peace in our busy and chaotic world.
Light the candle of peace and remember the times God has given you peace.
Pray together thanking God for his promise of peace. Ask God to give you opportunities throughout this Advent season to experience his calm loving presence during times of busyness and craziness.
