Wow, I can’t believe it’s the day before the night before the night before the night before the night before Christmas. It is nearly upon us! And to be quite honest, I still have tons of shopping to do – which is actually unusual for me. Oh well, I think I will join the rest of the men out buying vacuum cleaners and whatever Christmas sweater or jewelry they can find on Christmas Eve. Amy is going to love this year!
It’s just been one of those years – where the business of living life has overcome my ability to prepare for important events that lie ahead. Or maybe I a just have procrastinated.
Anyway, I am sure you are also finding some last minutes things to scramble for, they may not be as large of scale as the scramble that lies ahead of me. And really some of that hustle is part of the fun of celebrating Christmas. I mean who doesn’t love getting in all that last-minute traffic on Christmas Eve?
But let’s not let that happen to our spirits. Keep that in the forefront and guard that part of your life with extreme prejudice.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 New International Version (NIV)
