Do you ever feel like you’re just spinning your wheels
and not getting anywhere?
Like a gerbil on his wheel
round and round and round
weary from the running
realizing that you’ve never moved.
Life can have its moments
it’s up to us to plan for success.
The Christmas season can have it’s challenges
but it’s up to us
to look ahead and prepare for them.
A prudent man foresees danger and takes precautions.
The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Prov. 22:3
Listen to the cries of the overworked single mom
struggling to care for her children.
The holiday season can very well push her over the edge.
Pay attention to the lonely
who go day after day thinking that no one cares.
This time of year can be excruciating for them.
Notice the families struggling to add one more activity
on top of the pile
risking it all tumbling down
along with intense conflict and turmoil.
We can stay on the path of peace by foreseeing the potential problems
and taking precautions now.
Choose a Christmas that will linger in your memory for years to come.
Take steps now to do less and enjoy it more.
We don’t have to do it all.
No, choose the other path.
And begin to discover life the way it is meant to be.
One person at a time.
Yes, look ahead now.
Plan for success by choosing wisely today.
May this Christmas be one filled with the wonder of His Presence and Power.
It can only be so as we decrease the craziness and increase the meaningful.
He leads us beside the still waters.
Are you letting Him lead you today?
You’ll never regret it for His steps lead to life everlasting.
