When the holiday season began, I didn't have much hope. Things looked pretty grim, and we didn't have a lot to look forward to. We had each other, though, and that's what we were clinging to. Then God intervened. He brought not only comfort in the chaos, but also blessings beyond what we could have foreseen or imagined. God reminded me once again that He is in control and that He is holding my children and me closer than I sometimes think.
Just when I look around and am sure that all is lost, God shows up, and He often shows out. He is faithful to provide comfort, peace, and a helping hand when I most need it. My job is to look to Him and quit trying to figure everything out on my own.
Pray: Father, please forgive me for relying on my own solutions and strength instead of Yours. Everything works out so much better when I trust You and let You work in and through my circumstances as only You can. Thank You for blessing us with Your peace, love, and faithfulness during this holiday season. It has been a wonderful reminder that You are going with us into the new year, whatever it may bring. Amen.
