Episode 373

TODAY’S READING:

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body, you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Colossians 3:15

 

Busy season is upon us. Everyone is already putting out their holiday decor, playing Christmas music, and making their gift lists for their friends and family.

 

I love love love this time of year. But it’s easy for us to get so busy we get knocked off our routines.

 

It’s easy to get lost, and it’s easy for our prayer time to slip. It’s easy to forget why we celebrate this time of year.

 

Today’s prayer was nice and simple. I wanted to take a breather and remember that the peace of Christ rules my heart. I wanted to remember that gratitude is the best medicine for my soul and that no matter how crazy things got this season, Christ would be at the center of it all.

 

Hold onto His peace. Put on the posture of gratitude, and be present in the moment. Hold onto his promises, hold onto his joy, hold onto who He is, because in that we find the true reason for the season, and if we can hold onto Him this season, we will be all the better once the season comes to an end.

 

This verse also talks about how we are one body. This is a big one. Guys, we are all interconnected. We all are coming into this same season, and we all have different expectations for it. Can we all just agree together today that His peace is the main thing we are after, and we promise to have God at the very center of all of our actions?

 

PRAYER

Father God, today we pause and reflect on the season we are about to walk into. We thank you for everything you’ve given us this year. We are so so grateful to have you in our lives. Some of us got to know you for the first time this year, meaning this is our first holiday season, fully understanding the reason for the season. Others of us are getting ready to celebrate our 5th, 20th 40th Christmas season with you. Where ever we are, we ask that you meet us here. Let us not forget the true meaning of this time of year. Let us not lose track of our routines and our times alone with you. Let your peace fill us and give us the courage to continuously keep you at the center of our lives. It is in your Holy Name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
