I know the busy season of the holidays are vastly approaching and just want to encourage you to stay faithful in the disciplines of a disciple of the King. It would be a tragedy for the season to come and go only to have found ourselves caught up with the season without celebrating the reason. Let your focus be Jesus and your time with Him filling. It may take some extra planning and effort on your part to make sure you meet with Jesus everyday but set your alarm and get up earlier than normal but please meet with Jesus!
Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
A short devotion:
A Christmas Candle
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away;
While quite unselfish, it grows small.
- Eva K. Logue
John the Baptist said of Jesus: "He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less." John 3:30 (NLT)
We are like this Christmas candle that holds the flame, burning strong and bright the light of Christ. We softly give ourselves away in worship of Him and service for Him, that we might become less and less, and that He might become greater and brighter through us.
