Taking a Break at Christmas

It is December! That means you all have been on this journey of blogging with me for almost 7 months! It also means we are entering one of the busiest months of the year!

With that, I plan to take a break from posting this month. While I have LOVED your encouragement and feedback on this journey, I plan to use this month to focus on the Christmas season more intentionally, to prepare for a new Bible study in 2024, and to enjoy time with the Lord.

I encourage you to do the same!

How will you focus on the Christmas season more intentionally? It is easy to get wrapped up in all of the activity. Do you need to spend time in an Advent Bible study? (The Daily Grace Co. and Lifeway both offer great ideas!)

How will you prepare for your Bible study time in 2024? If you need a community for your Bible study, I’d love for you to join me! We will be diving deep into the New Testament over at our Facebook group. Come join us!

How do you enjoy time with the Lord? In December, I love to spend extra time journaling, attending candlelight services on Christmas Eve, and finishing my 2023 Bible study.

Jesus told his disciples to rest.

Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat.

Mark 6:31, NLT

If they had to find time to pull away and rest, how much more do we need rest in our busy, loud culture?

Dear friend, enjoy the month of December. Don’t let busyness take away your focus on Jesus. Use these next few weeks to focus on your Jesus, plan how you will grow your relationship with him in 2024, and simply enjoy this season!

    I love this! It is so easy to let the holiday be about things that need to get done, gifts to buy, places we need to go. I love the idea of taking December to slow down, enjoy the season, and really dwell on the birth of Christ.
