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.
