HTH: Christmas for the Weary
Rounding the final bend toward Christmas day, I find myself filled with joy, but also complete exhaustion. For those who work in the church, weariness during this time of year is real, and yet the Christmas event itself speaks hope into those dark and tired places in our hearts. Check out this wonderful article, and the excerpt below:
“Christ the Redeemer was born to save the wretched, and the desperate, the thief, and the liar.
His birth dawned like a sunrise over a darkened world. He is the sunrise that pierced the darkness of the shadow of death.
This is Christmas. Do not let your doubt or weariness temporarily mute your worship.
Christmas is for you, weary Christian.
It’s for the parts of us that still feel the chill of the shadow of death.”
