“Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, and revive me in Thy ways: (Psalm 119:37 NASV).
Although all of these things can be good and enjoyable aspects of the holiday season if kept in perspective, it is especially difficult for me when all things must revolve around my pain and energy level. I may end up feeling depressed, tense, and discouraged rather than anticipating the celebration of Christ’s birth.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, during this blessed season of celebrating Your birth, help me to put aside the vanities of the world and to seek You above all else. As I do, You revive my heart (Psalm 69:33 NAS) bringing me true peace and joy. Amen.
