Courtney over at http://www.womenlivingwell-courtney.blogspot.com/ has issued a peace on earth challenge for the month of December. I am going to see how it goes, it worth a shot if it can help make my life any less stressful and help put the focus of Christmas where it should be and that is on Jesus,the REAL REASON for the season.
Here is the 1st challenge(I am a week behind but figure better late than never)---
This week challenge is Write at the top of your December calendar page--I Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.This will be a reminder every time you look at your calendar and feel anxious about all you have to get done - to pray. God cares for you. Release your worries to him and rest in him.
Also, go buy an extra large candle and light a candle everyday in your home in the month of December. I will be starting mine this morning! But you can start yours anytime. I will be placing mine in the living room - the main hub of my home. Each time the candle catches your eye, say a prayer for peace in your home.
Dont let the hustle and bussal take you away from what this holiday is all about, the BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST and keeping our focus on HIM, not all the "stuff" we have to do all month.
