When I am going through a difficult season, I find it incredibly helpful to focus on others.
I like to prayerfully ask, “How can I be a blessing to someone today?” It gets my mind off my own troubles and onto being a part of the healing of someone else’s troubles.
Sounds like a good recipe for joy. :-)
Plus, it is reflective of the true spirit of Christmas as seen in Matthew 20:28 – “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
Happy Christmas RAK-ing! :-)
