It's Late and I'm Tired

The holidays are in full swing, and it's only Dec. 2nd.  In the next few weeks, my mother-in-law will be coming for a visit.  Dance week will consist of 2 rehearsals and 5 performances.  There will be various performances at local nursing/rehab centers.  Christmas Sunday services,  Christmas Eve services (which will include a Santa Claus on a firetruck).  Then the various other events that I don't know anything about.  I'm tired just typing all of this.

But this morning was a great day to worship Jesus with all of our heart.  The song set was powerful, prayer time was personal, and many people responded to the challenge at the end of the service.

I got to hand out with some parents from the dance academy for a few minutes and then work with some of our youth who are using their talents for Christmas Sunday and Christmas Eve services.

Why am I telling you all of this? 

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

I have to check my attitude, watch what I eat, make sure I get plenty of sleep and wisely use my time.  If I don't, I am sure one of these blog posts will be from the local hospital.  So here are a few things that I encourage you to do this holiday season.  

#1 Read the book of Proverbs.  There are 31 chapters in Proverbs there are 31 days in December.  Let Solomon give you wisdom. 

#2 Don't be afraid to say no.  The Bible talks about saying no to temptation, evil, and all sorts of other stupid stuff.  

#3 Budget your time.  Then don't blow the budget.  If you need to be in bed by a particular time, make sure it happens.  

#4 Check your attitude frequently.  Each of us starts the day off right, but we can lose our way very quickly.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, let me make the right choices this holiday season.  AMEN
