“Too often Christmas becomes a time when we overcommit ourselves to a never-ending ‘to-do list.’ We make promises to our families, friends, and co-workers — promises that often become burdens. From decorating, shopping, wrapping gifts, attending parties, making cookies, planning activities for the kids, and cooking, we run ourselves down physically, mentally, and emotionally. We wonder, will it ever end?
We make so many promises during the holidays that we forget the promises God gave in Scripture and His fulfilled promise that we celebrate during this season.”
Cissie Graham Lynch is the daughter of Franklin Graham and granddaughter of Billy Graham. Through her newly released Christmas devotional, her hope is that you will “take a moment to quiet your heart from the busyness and demands of this season and let the Lord speak to you.”
