19 Days Until Christmas

This month is my busiest time of year. Many days I am at the mercy of other's people's needs and schedules as we plan parties, attend events and get things accomplished. This creates a full calendar, a full plate and an overly-full mind.

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 1 Corinthians 14:33

All I want is a moment of peace. The confusion of the world says cram it full...try to do more...be busy and you'll be happy. But I don't want happiness. I want God's peace. That's the greatest gift of all time, and it won't be wrapped under a tree.

The peace of God passes all understanding, and that peace began in Bethlehem. When Jesus Christ came to earth, He brought a beautiful, perfect peace with Him. Nothing man-made can begin to compare with the peace that comes from our Savior.

With His arrival came peace.
With the teaching of the Gospel came peace.
With His perfect will came peace.
With the blotting out of our sins came peace.
With His resurrection came peace.
With His intercession to God came peace.

The Christmas season was never meant to be a time of confusion, busyness and frazzled minds. The birth of Jesus Christ wasn't hurried or just another note on the calendar. It was a moment in time that brought peace and clarity to a lost and dying world. It was peaceful 2010 years ago and it can be peaceful in your heart at this very moment.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
