The Reason For the Season-His Encouragement #15

As I sit here listening to some amazing Christmas songs online and reading through posts about this Christmas season and the blessing the world was given through Mary, I can’t help but feel encouraged and loved beyond anything I’ve known.

I know my Encouragement posts have been a bit sparse this past month, but it is not from lack of encouragement or inspiration on my end. I’ve actually been trying to prioritize family and my relationship with God. Sometimes we need to take a step back from all of the chaos of schedules, holidays hustle and bustle, and to-do lists to remember the reason for the season.

“But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’” – Luke 2:10 NIV

“All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel.’ (Which means “God is with us”).” – Matthew 1:22 NIV

The holidays to me are all about the birth of Christ and also love and family. So, make sure that you make an extra effort this week to indulge in family time and make precious memories with those people God has put in your life as family.
