God has called us to live a life of thankfulness. Even in this busyness of this Christmas Season our moments should be punctuated with thanksgiving. But we become too busy “Doing Christmas.” Decorating our homes, catching up with friends, buying presents and sometimes complaining about how tired we are during the Christmas Season. I know the busyness of Christmas did not come from God!! We forget to stop and be grateful for God who is in control of the universe. He is the Creator and Controller of the universe.
In the midst of this glorious time of year, I still find myself criticizing or complaining, acting as if I could run the world better than God. Many times when I watch what is happening in our upside down world, I may ask where is God? But I know, I don’t know or see what God does behind the scenes. I would give anything if God would pull back the curtains just a tiny bit to allow me to view heavenly realms, I know I would understand so much more. However, I know God designed me to live by faith, not by sight. It is for my protection that God does not allow me to know or see into the spirit world. So I end this day, stopping and thanking God for his sovereignty by giving thanks in all circumstances.
