It’s not just at Christmas time that we worship the Christ Child. It’s not just inside a church building or event that He is present with us. Our God doesn’t live within time and space as we do, nor is He contained in a book or limited by our understanding. By focusing on His Truths (like love, compassion, surrender, service) and following by faith alone, we can connect to His Spirit so that every breath is worship and every step has purpose.
During this season, if we stop long enough to listen, prepare ourselves to hear, and execute God’s plan as revealed to us, we can then resume our lives with a fresh understanding of how we can become new every day.
Start a journal today to record the blessings that emerge during this month. You will begin to recognize them more and more as you begin to pay attention. As you write down each gift from God, thank Him and share what He has done for you with others.
