At holiday times we usually have activities that promote fun, celebration, and joy. Christmas decorations and gifts; New Year’s parties and noise makers; Easter services and egg hunts. The problem is, you may be so focused on engaging in the activities you miss the joy and meaning of the holiday itself. Likewise, you may be overworking yourself in pursuit of your education, promotion, recognition – and in the process miss the meaning of why you began. All of it is a gift from God. All of it finds meaning in Christ. Seek Him first, and all these things will find their proper place. When you seek God with all your heart you will find Him in all those activities – and they will bring fullness, meaning, and deep joy. Your life will be like a new adventure as you discover wonderful new things on the journey of seeking God.
Blessings on you,
