I have a pillow that says “It’s the most wonderful time of the year,” and between me and you, I kind of want to get rid of it. The past two weeks have left me feeling more stressed than usual and friend, let me just say: I’m exhausted. Phew, there.
If it were not for meeting with the Lord regularly and His Spirit within me then I would not be here today with a smile on my face. I am so thankful for His grace that brings repentance, renewal, and resetting when stress rears its ugly head in my life. Now of course it is the most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, and yet it still remains one of the most stressful seasons for many of us especially in these times of unrest and uncertainty.
