There is much to celebrate at Christmas time—and much to distract us too. It’s a season of goodness and love. But it’s also a season of noise and pressure. And it can be a season of loneliness and sorrow and loss.
It’s easy to get caught up in the invitations—or temptations—to go and do and to fill our schedules with things and people and events. It’s no coincidence that here we are, invited by our God to slow down and take in the beauty of Christ’s birth, and our culture is bullying us to do the opposite. Because, while not impossible, it’s just much more difficult to hear God’s voice, and experience His presence, when we’re constantly moving, constantly planning, constantly striving to create—on our own—some kind of Christmas experience that will be meaningful, satisfying, that will compare well with other people’s experiences.
But how do we even know what our hearts need this Christmas if we don’t connect with the One who always knows what we need? Because while the world says celebrate, we might not feel like celebrating. Or while the world tries to convince us that a “good Christmas” looks like going to parties, buying and giving gifts, attending church services, we might just be struggling to keep our head above water—and might just need to do less.
Well, this season can be what it is meant to be if we do this one thing . . .
