Beat the Holiday Blues

A nativity scene by Bagnadore
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.—Colossians 3:15 (NIV)

THERE CAN BE moments during the holiday season where you feel disheartened. If that happens remember this: Over 2,000 years ago, God made a supreme effort to let us know that He cares about each of us! To remind us, to reassure us, He gave us His perfect Christmas gift—and laid it in a manger.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, fill my heart with Your heavenly peace.

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts
