12 13 10 Monday
During this, the Christmas season, many people get depressed and discontent. It’s hard to imagine; if you have never felt this way, how could anyone be down during the most wonderful time of the year.
There are many reasons why folk can be depressed and don’t enjoy the holidays. If you are in this group I want to encourage you today. If you are not in this group; then I want to encourage you to offer hope and encouragement to those that are down. Either way I want to encourage you today. It is a wonderful time of year. Even if your circumstances and your situation may tell you it’s not a wonderful time; look past that to the reason we celebrate Christmas. Jesus’ birth is the reason, but even more is the hope that He brought to the world. There is hope, there is joy, there is forgiveness, there is destiny because of His birth. Focus on the good things in your life. Know that your best days are yet to come. If you are in the middle of a bad stretch; know that it will pass. Know that you are loved and appreciated. Let’s make the greatest Christmas ever, not just for ourselves but for everyone. Make a difference this Christmas in someone’s life.
