I love the holiday season! It’s a time when folks can go home, reconnect with family and friends, and reflect on both the challenges and blessings of the season.
But with so much happening in the world, it’s also pretty easy to see how and why the holidays can be a time filled with great sadness and pain. It can be a time when people don’t feel cared for or loved. A time when people feel lonely, poor, discouraged, inadequate, and depressed. We get so bogged down by the negatives and the crazy cards that life can often present that we lose sight of what really matters, we lose hope and faith in ourselves and the world around us. We forget about our own well-being and the well-being of others. Don’t.
You may not feel loved, but you are because I love you.
You may not feel wealthy, but you are wealthy with the riches money can’t buy.
You may feel lonely, but you’re not for He is always with you.
You may feel inadequate, but you were made in His image and are destined for greatness.
Don’t give up or let this holiday season get you down– let it build you up instead.
And if you ever feel like you’re by yourself and need someone to talk to, someone to bring you good tidings or give you peace, comfort, and love, I’m here for you.
