“When you don’t take time out to notice & understand your emotions, they have a strange way of resurfacing when you least expect or want them to”.
Emotions can sweep over you during the holidays like no other time throughout the year. Emotions like grief, sadness, loneliness, depression, fear can easily grip us and cause great despair.
When Christ was born Jesus was a ray of hope in such a dark time. King Herod was out to kill all male babies two years old and younger. Thank God Mary and Joseph fled with Jesus to Egypt because King Herod was out to get the Messiah, the true King Jesus Christ the Son of God.
God came into the world duringvthis dark time and brought the true light, a light of hope in a dark time.
So often we let emotions get the best of us and it’s okay to grieve, but we should not allow the enemies like Herod to live in despondency and despair and try to destroy us.
Look to the God of Hope where we find strength, peace, love, contentment, joy, and life. God will get you through this dark valley because He cares for you. 🙏💙🎇
