Experiencing the Chaos of Christmas?

“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.” Isaiah 42:6–7 (NIV)

I used to think Christmas was all about joy, hope, and peace on earth. I stayed away from reading news stories filled with pain and despair. But the older I get, the more I realize that Christmas may have more to do with chaos than anything else. Because the people of this earth, in a million different ways, are sitting in the dark, afraid. Hoping beyond hope that someone will protect them, hold them, keep them safe, and lift them out of their fear. We have been in desperate need of a Savior. You and I and our families and the billions of others dotting the globe.


Jesus hears our cries. He sees us all. And He is working out His plan. At great detriment to Himself, Jesus came into the darkness of this world. He saw us down in our fears, our pain, our sin, and our despair. And cracked the sky with His light and great love and said, “I am here with you in the middle of this mess. And even better, if you just hold on to me, I will save you.”

FAITH STEP: Light a candle and pray for those in the world that need Jesus in the midst of their darkness to bring them hope and joy this holiday season.
