For many of us life is full on. We struggle to get everything done. We have responsibilities and feel pressured by the seemingly never ending demand. Even so, sometimes I find myself thankful for times like this...I know, it sounds strange, but busy times often give me the "wakeup" call I need to step back and just be with God. To take a deep breath and find strength in his presence.
For a lot of us the upcoming Christmas "silly season" will be a challenge in this regard. I just want to encourage you before it really hits: Let this time drive you into God's presence! Let yourself be strengthened and empowered by His grace and mercy! Let His Holy Spirit minister to your spirit - life and light. Let your joy be found in Him!
What are you waiting for? You could start in Psalm 43.
Grace and Peace, Pastor David Auty
