Maybe you're not caught up in the holiday spirit. Maybe things in your life aren't going the way you planned. Maybe all the joy you would like to have during this season just isn't there.
So what do you do?
You could put on happy face and pretend like everything is alright or you could come before God raw in all your pain and say "things suck and I need You to make them better."
There's no shame in being yourself in front of God. Because that what He wants. He loves you (problems and all) and He wants to make things better. And not just for the month of December.
Whatever you're feeling, wherever you are, whatever the season, Jesus is there for you. And that's a Christmas gift that lasts year-round.
