you better watch out!

"Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8

There is someone out there trying to steal your joy.  Has he succeeded?  It's a daily battle for me, and some days i really take a beating.  CHRISTmas has to be one of his favorite and most successful times to frustrate and short circuit believers. Take a look around -- or maybe take a look in the mirror.  Everyone is in a frantic hurry and scribbling to-do-lists.  If you are stressed about CHRISTmas, your focused is in the wrong direction.

I want to pray for you now.  I pray you stop and find a few quiet moments to remember the reason for CHRISTmas.  Remember the gift that can't be topped and the One who gave it to you.  God's gift of salvation lasts a lifetime.

Let's pray to our Father, listen to some joyous CHRISTmas music, read His Word... or, at least stop and whisper a breath of thanks. But what ever you do, don't feed that lion!

have a blessed-filled day!
