There are only 6 weeks left in 2016.

That’s only 6 weeks to get shopping done, bring grades up, and somehow find sleep in between everything else. Now I’m not sure about you, but that is enough to send anyone into a panic! We are in the final sprint of the year, the last lap, and we still have so much to do!

Thankfully, God knows exactly what to say to us during these busy times. We just need to remember to keep our hearts open to what He tells us! It is so easy for us to lose sight of the finish line and get caught up in details, but remember that He calls us to come to Him in prayer.

Jesus ran the race for us and we are able to come to God with every burden on our hearts and minds. He understands our joys and our fears and wants us to remember that we are not alone. So take this week to unplug, put up your feet, and reconnect with your family. We are blessed to have an awesome God and should give thanks to Him not only on Thanksgiving, but everyday of the year!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7
