Finding your Christmas Spirit

The Christmas Spirit seems to be something that can be a bit allusive during the holiday season and we often find ourselves looking for it in many different places; possibly by listening to Christmas music, decorating the house or by hoping that your minister can put that spirit into your heart.

For many the Christmas Spirit is further from our hearts during this holiday than it is the rest of the year. With all the work of preparing for the holiday and the added burden to our schedules, trying to get everything done by the preset deadline can cause stress that can play a big toll on the Spirit we feel expected to have.

The Christmas Spirit is a state that is achieved through faith and prayer; it is the same Spirit that you hold on to all year long, the Spirit that sustains you in all that you do, the same Spirit that you work to grow through your personal relationship with our Savior Jesus.

So when you feel like you are lacking in the Christmas Spirit: stop and take a moment to pray, and then with every task at hand as you strive to complete it do so in prayer and thankfulness. And remember that the greatest gift you can give is love. The Spirit you seek is already yours through the grace of God; all you need to do is ask for it back with an open heart.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.
