Advent

Every year I find myself glued to the TV screen watching a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie. Within the first five minutes I can usually gauge what the characters will be like, who will end up falling in love with whom, and how the ending will turn out—which we all know is “happily ever after.” Even […]

There’s a fantasy Christmas I’ve constructed in my mind. Maybe you have one too? During this fantasy Christmas season, I eat all of the most scrumptious treats without gaining a pound. I watch all of my favorite Christmas movies and listen to all of my favorite Christmas music. The lovely season is devoid of family […]

Every year, amidst the cheerful tunes ringing throughout stores, the twinkling lights adorning the rooftops, and the comforting scent of cookies baking, there always seems to be a “scrooge” I come across who crushes the joy of the season.

Is there someone in your life that God continually brings to your mind because you harbor unforgiveness towards them? They may be completely unaware that you feel this way. What instruction are we given in […]

Everlasting Father | December 14: Have you shared your story of Christ’s redemption in your life? As you invest time into the life of another person, sharing your story with them will be a natural overflow of that relationship. Your story is how Christ has saved you and given you new life. Has there been […]

Mighty God | December 8: Have you experienced a tragedy in your life that consumes you? If so, what was it? Because of Christ’s death on the cross, it is possibly to have peace even when suffering has been or is a part of your story. Read 1 Peter 5:9-11. What is the promised end […]

December 1 It’s December 1, the beginning of a month that can bring about mixed emotions. For some, it’s the start of the Christmas season and nothing but joy fills your heart and home. But for others, it’s the start of a holiday that brings sadness because of lost loved ones, tense family dynamics, financial […]
