Christmas is always such a busy time. You have more to do than usual. Your to-do list seems never-ending, the hours in the day seem shorter than normal, and the tendency to push yourself is compounded.

Through taking time to rest in Me, to commune with Me in prayer each day, you will be strengthened and refreshed. As you take a break from your work and the mental stress of your day to quietly connect with Me, you will find renewed strength. Whether you can take an extended time or just pause various times throughout the day, by putting aside your hurried thoughts to reflect on Me, you will be giving Me a valuable gift.

This Christmas, I would ask for the gift of your time and sweet communion with Me.
