I have been struggling with reading my Bible daily...some weeks even picking it up at all except on Sunday, when I am "supposed to". Most of the time I am just lazy, or I find ANY other thing to occupy my time instead of facing what the Lord is trying to teach me head on.

Today, I discovered reading plans on the YouVersion app on my phone. I am starting with the Carols: a Christmas Devotional and Rediscoving the Christmas Season. I pray that the Lord opens my heart to what he has in store for my life by getting back into his word.

The question from the Carols devotional was "What do you plan on rejoicing about this Christmas season?"

I am rejoicing that:

  • I am in good health and have medication to help me remain that way
  • I have a family who loves me that I live close to and see often
  • I have a job that provides for me
  • Most importantly: the SAVIOR of the WORLD was born, lived, and died solely for the sins of the world. HOW CAN WE NOT REJOICE ABOUT THAT??
Let's rejoice this Christmas Season because of the real reason we celebrate!

So thankful my life belongs to Him and that He will never give up on us even when we stray :)

If you would like to read with me...
