Peace in the midst.  In the midst of all the planning, the shopping, the decorating, the buying, the wrapping, the waiting in the sea of traffic, the waiting to be waited on, the meal planning, the coming and going from one event to another . . .

Struggling in the midst.  So many times I have found myself feeling more like that tangled mess of Christmas lights.  No peace in the midst. Letting myself get lost in the mess.  Lost in the mess, when I lose my focus of the Messiah.

And then I hear the familiar Christmas carols whispering to me, reminding me it’s through filling my heart with joyful praise and adoration of Him that I am in the midst of Peace.

When Jesus is the focus of our holiday, we’re centered on His love, peace, and joy.

Ephesians 2:14 confirms, “For He is our peace…”.

HE is our Peace.

And when our hearts are at peace, our Christmas season can be too.

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
