The Christmas week is here, hurray! Thank God for the opportunity to see yet another Christmas week.

Perhaps you are worried sick about your holiday plans- what to eat, what to get as gifts, what to wear, what to spend…God says to let you know that you can trust in Him absolutely.

Luke 12:22-26 is a reminder that God wants us to thrust ourselves at Him; every bit of it. You are not to let Him have the major stuff while you deal with the minor stuff. He wants the major, minor and all else in-between. Let’s glean from the Passion Translation:

Jesus taught his disciples, saying, “Listen to me. Never let anxiety enter your hearts. Never worry about any of your needs, such as food or clothing.  For your life is infinitely more than just food or the clothing you wear. Take the carefree birds as your example. Do you ever see them worry? They don’t grow their own food or put it in a storehouse for later. Yet God takes care of every one of them, feeding each of them from his love and goodness. Isn’t your life more precious to God than a bird? Be carefree in the care of God! Does worry add anything to your life? Can it add one more year, or even one day? So if worrying adds nothing, but actually subtracts from your life, why would you worry about God’s care of you?

In summary, it’s time to completely eradicate whatever gets you worried; simply cast your cares upon the Lord.

God bless you & compliments of the season!
