“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30. It’s just days before Christmas. If you’ve found yourself struggling with the stress of making it all happen, of making Christmas ultra-special, magical, or perfect in every way – deep breath. It’s OK, it’s not all up to us.
Do not let this wonderful time of the year leave you feeling defeated, depleted, and completely overwhelmed. You don’t have to stay stuck there. You can move forward out of that trap and let go of the striving in it all. In whatever you get done, and whatever you don’t, through the holiday madness or the simple moments that often mean the most, Jesus came, offering peace. Giving grace. Bringing hope. It’s what matters most, at Christmas, and all year through. He’s the Only One who makes it all amazing and special.
