Isaiah 40 vs. 29-31
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those whose hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
I do not know about anyone else..but I bet I have people behind me when I say that this verse hits home with most of us at this time of the year. Christmas is a season, where Jesus is the reason, but somehow the chaos of the worldly view of Christmas tends to overwhelm us all. I will admit I fall victim to the hectic, chaotic world and am suddenly overwhelmed and consumed by the busy and feel weary, ravaged, and disengaged from him, the true reason why Christmas is.
I hope that I can keep my focus on the true reason and find rest in my Lord, our Jesus. So challenging myself to just take time each day to just sit for 10 minutes focusing on him and only him.
Just ten minutes is not near enough, but being realistic, ten minutes is where I shall start.
Who wants to join me and take a ten minute break to just focus solely on our savior, he deserves this and so much more!
