I have had numerous conversations with people this week about being in the word. This time of year brings about chaos. From family, work, church, friends Christmas parties to squeezing in holiday traditions. We celebrate the birth of our Savior and yet without even realizing it we tend to feel so far away from what represents our hope. Yesterday I filled in at church with Revolution kids and I was so blessed watching and listening to those sweet kids worship in their own ways. From clapping, jumping to yelling to even some screaming they were writing those songs on their little sponge like hearts. The video was talking about needs and she said "God knew our greatest gift was to be rescued and so He sent Jesus". I can't seem to get that out of my mind this morning. So many of the people I am surrounded by are struggling financially, or their marriages seem to be slipping through their fingers and there is no visible sign of hope to them. For some it’s the chaos of what this season brings like credit card debt, remembering a death, depression and even anxiety.  For believers we celebrate Christmas as a season of hope and yet for so many it doesn’t represent that at all. 
 Isaiah 40:31 says this..

"but those who HOPE in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."

 I love the very first part of that verse it says IN the Lord.  That strength we need to push through this season is found IN His word. Those pages are a direct path to the heart of God. It is our direction, answers and healing. It brings comfort; it teaches us and ultimately shows us that our struggles and the battles of this life will one day be over.  How exciting to know the end of the story and Christmas is where it all began for you and me.   This season is an opportunity for those around you to see you draw from the very reason why we celebrate.  Don’t let gifts, annoying family members and things you CANNOT control keep you from experiencing your Creator like ever before.  He wants you exactly where you are today. Rest in Him. Pull Strength from Him. Seek Him. YOUR rescuer is on the way. 

Psalm 18:19
He brought me out into a spacious place;  He RESCUED me because He DELIGHTED IN ME.
