Hello Dear One,
Several weeks ago, I suggested a new tradition for you and yours? Each evening turn off the lamps and with a match, light a single white candle, representing the true Light of the World. Sit in silence and allow His peace to quiet your troubled mind. I pray that you are doing this. My life is filled with trauma and it would be easy to dip into despair. Perhaps, you are dealing with health issues, finances dipping to zero, and/or family relationships which are splintering. Maybe too much to do on your way-too-long list?
Rest, dear one. We are people of the light. There is hope for a better tomorrow. Please don’t allow any circumstance, no matter how scary, to destroy your peace. I am bravely trying to choose my thoughts. We can choose to trust the promises of scripture. The only gift we need, the only gift I earnestly desire for myself and others is Emmanuel. God with us.
I affirm that there is no room in my heart or my mind for worry. Christ is my all. He fills my heart with peace and love. Ask Jesus to fill your dark and scary places with the warmth of His Light. He is our hope. The weary world rejoices. Emmanual, the gift of Christmas. Receive Him anew.
Praying for you in these tumultuous times, Linda
