Feeling you just can’t escape the Christmas rush? Here’s some “seasonal” advice from Dr. David Jeremiah:

Dr. David Jeremiah - Turning Point - Tuesday, December 13 - Slowing Down Christmas

But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth hush and be silent before Him. Habakkuk 2:20, AMP

Lots of terms describe busyness—the rat race, the daily grind, the hamster cage, the treadmill, the vicious cycle. This time of year we call it the Christmas rush. But let’s make time for the Christmas hush—contemplative, meaningful, quiet time when we can ponder the wonderful story of Jesus and write on our hearts every word.

Recommended Reading: Psalm 46

How can we do this amid the shopping, cooking, and entertaining that jumbles our schedule? Christmas is a perfect time to slow down—at least for a night or two. Perhaps for a day or so. The lights, candles, and decorations provide a tender atmosphere. Soft music helps. All our electronic devices—even our phones—have off buttons. The covers of our Bibles still open, and so is the listening ear of our Lord.

In the busyness of the Christmas season, make room for Him in your schedule through prayer and time in His Word. That’s what makes the Christmas season truly meaningful. That’s the Christmas hush.

I want to slow down Christmas and enjoy and feel the bliss in knowing this Son, this baby Jesus was sent for you and for me. Sandie Heckman
