"Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"
Are you about ready to "peace" together your life again? Have the many demands of the holidays running into years end just laid you flat? Then, take heart! You are in the perfect position! On the night of Christ's birth, shepherds watched over their flocks around Bethlehem. Likely, only a portion of these shepherds kept active eyes against encroaching enemies. The others, though ready to wake at a moment's notice, were catching their rest. They were laid out flat.
But they were about to receive history's most overwhelming awakening! In the middle of the shepherds' night, an angelic announcement woke them with frightful start. They watched and listened in awe, until the host sang, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men"
Oh, that we should be those favored people! That we would know this peace which passes all understanding, calms your spirit in the midst of the busy holiday season, everyday turmoil and chaos during that unexpected disaster. My prayer for you is not the peace of the world but the peace of Jesus throughout this coming year.
