Well here's the good news...Jesus Christ is our Light in a dark world. He gives us the courage and strength to face whatever challenges we are up against. He gives us His peace despite the harshness and realities of this life.
He does not remove us from the stresses and sorrows of this life, but in the middle of the conflicts and challenges we face this Christmas, He gives us His peace...he gives us hope...He is our Light.
Christmas is not a retreat from the real world...because of Christmas we can face the real world with our Prince of Peace. Let's allow His light to lead the way in the darkness.
