Beautiful music, parties with friends, gifts that delight, bright lights, family gatherings, children filled with excitement and delicious food. They all make this the most wonderful time of the year. But what do you do when the most wonderful time of the year turns out to be the yuckiest time of the year because you’re overwhelmed by grief, fighting depression, watching your marriage come unraveled or seeing people you love destroy their lives? For heavens sake, don’t do the worst possible thing you can do – deny how you feel, pretend everything is fine or conclude the problem is you. Instead, hold on for dear life to the one thing that truly matters about Christmas: the fact God loves you so passionately and personally that God has ‘moved into the neighborhood.’ So much so, you can proclaim, “Jesus lives here!”
