Let me ask you a question: How are you feeling this holiday season?

A) I’m feeling the Christmas magic! Grateful!

B) I’m sad or lonely or really stressed…

If you answered yes, you’re in good company. Maybe you’re having the best Christmas season you’ve had in a long time! Or maybe you’re coping with grief, illness, financial insecurity, or something else. There’s a good chance you’re dealing with some mix of all of the above, and that’s okay.

The holidays can be complicated, and every Christmas song tries to tell you to “be of good cheer.” I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to. And you’re not alone.

So how do you cope when the holidays are hard? Take a listen, and I’ll share some ways I’m shedding expectations this year. (And I sing a little too…)

Prayer:

God, we acknowledge who You are, and we are grateful. We praise You for who You are, and we thank You for what You’ve done. We know You’ve done so much for us this year, but we also want to come to You and say there’s many of us that are struggling this holiday season. May we base our expectations on Your expectations. May we be grateful for the gift that Jesus was in our life and is in our life, and the fact, God, that You sent Your only Son. And if that is the end of our gratitude, may we not feel shame in that being all we can celebrate. May You bring comfort to those who are mourning. May You bring freedom to those that are chained. And may You bring peace to those that are in pain. We pray all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
