We are in the final week before Christmas. It’s been a busy few weeks and appears to get busier for me as the days go on. No matter how much I try to rest and allow God’s peace to overwhelm me, I find myself exhausted, worried and stressed out.
Not a good way to welcome the birth of our Lord and Savior, huh?
I could give you every excuse as to why I’m feeling the way I do, but really, the only person I have to blame for not remaining in a state of rest and peace is myself. Jesus, He is the Prince of Peace. And the Good Shepherd, He promised to make me lie down in green pastures.
