So often we are distracted with the lights and decorations, Christmas parties and pageants, buying presents, making lists, making cookies, planning a big dinner.

And all of the preparation to celebrate Jesus can make us crazy!

Something like Martha in the Bible.

She was so busy preparing for Jesus, she never enjoyed Jesus. And this is the danger we often face during this season.

We want to create the “perfect Christmas” (whatever that is)

We want to make sure we buy the perfect gifts

Throw the perfect party

Make the perfect cookies

Everything has to be extra-special….but where is our heart? Is it distracted?

We can be Mary and still do all the cooking and decorating, planning and buying of presents, as long as our heart remains at Jesus’ feet.

Learning from Him

Enjoying His presence

Dwelling in His peace

That is why this year I created a 30 Day Prayer Challenge for Christmas.

Learning from Him Enjoying His presence Dwelling in His peace That is why this year I created a 30 Day Prayer Challenge for Christmas. This Prayer Challenge takes you through the entire Christmas story, sometimes glancing back at Old Testament prophesies to offer some broader perspective. I truly enjoyed creating this one and I can't wait to go back during December to revisit these wonderful verses and remind myself how God spoke through those prophets to tell about the coming of His Son....and wonder if they truly understood the significance of their words. I hope you'll join me in sitting at Jesus' feet this month and celebrating Him. Celebrating the fact that God chose to become man That God chose to walk among us That God chose to subject Himself to the limitations and frustrations here on earth That God chose to live a life of stigma, look so average that no one would even give him a second glance, and then die like a criminal. In celebrating Him, we learn from His example of rejecting the temptation to enjoy being liked too much and enjoying luxury too much, but rather keeping His eyes fixed on heaven. Let us choose the better thing this year. Join me in 30 days of praying through the Christmas story!
