Have you ever had one of those days when everything went wrong and you thought - “I shouldn’t have got out of bed today!” Well Christmas must have felt like that for many of the key characters – for Mary and Joseph, Herod, the religious leaders of the time, the inn keeper and the shepherds. Everybody’s plans got changed.
So, the story of Christmas can teach us what’s happening when it seems that God messes up our plans. Christmas is a great opportunity – for God to get our attention for us to discover God’s purpose for our lives, and to trust God.
May God bless this Christmas time for you as you reflect on your life in 2019 and commit your life into God’s care in 2020.
