Hit Pause this Christmas
Throughout this Christmas season, I want to make room for Jesus and reserve time to reflect on His faithfulness. I want to press in and ponder this gift of life given. I want to feel fully immersed in the true spirit and meaning of Christmas. I want to make memories with my family centered around these things.
But life goes on. The schedule fills up. There is always much to be done.
It dawned on me if I don’t find times to hit pause on it all, Christmas will happen all around me and I will miss it. So I’ve set aside my daily reading plan to read advent devotionals. I’ve locked in family dates on the calendar so they carry equal weight with all other scheduled demands. What I get out of this season is in my hands to determine.
Maybe you too have struggled to get in the Christmas spirit. If so, what can you do, how can you carve out time to sit at the saviors feet and simply adore him? How can you hit pause and find time to savor, enjoy and be fully immersed in this moment?
