What’s a Mom to Do?

When we’re thinking “Christmas,” it always seems so ideal, so perfect, doesn’t it? But in reality, it can get pretty hectic for everyone. Finding that balance between a Christ-centered Christmas and real life is a challenge, and Mom often finds herself right in the middle. What’s a mom to do?

It’s so easy to get sidetracked, especially this time of year. But no matter what you do each day, whatever it is, it’s a matter of the heart. Whether it’s deciding how to spend your money for Christmas, how you spend your time, how you treat people, or how you do the work you have to get done, your choices will reveal your heart.

It says in Proverbs 4:23, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.” In other words, we’re to present our entire being to God—the heart first. Mom, what are the choices you’re making this holiday season revealing about your heart? Are the things you’re saying “yes” to Christ-centered and God-honoring? Do you need to say “no” to some things in order to keep your family’s focus (and sanity!) on what’s really important?

What’s a mom to do? Ask God for His wisdom during this Christmas season. Ask Him to help you make the choices that reveal a heart wholly devoted to Him.
