This might be a good time to set the record straight about who I am, just in case you're believing something else:
When you put all of that together, you get a woman who (full disclosure!) doesn’t quite know how to do the holiday season without a funky mix of joy and sadness. It seems counter-intuitive for a bright, festive season, but it's often reality.
Maybe I'm not the only one? Maybe, like me, have to preach truth to yourself to replace worry.
Maybe you're like me and have to intentionally choose to lean in and choose everyday worship in order to bend your heart back to Him instead of your own idols.
If you’re both bubbling over and wanting to hide for a few months at the same time, you're not alone, friend—I'm with you! Let's remember together:
Oh, may we find that enough! May the me that is most unlikely to celebrate, smile, and be still, be reminded that He made me. He's growing me. And He is right here with me.
You see, God is in the business of setting the record straight, too:
Friend, remember, He's after your heart.
Because of grace,
