Encouragement for a 

Blue Christmas Title-1

"Have a holly, jolly Christmas / It's the best time of the year..."

But sometimes it doesn’t feel like the best time of the year. For many of us, the time around Christmas might actually feel like the worst time of the year.

Rather than having more time with family and friends, we might find ourselves alone and feeling lonely. Perhaps we’re thinking of people we’ve lost and sensing their absence from our lives. Rather than enjoying overflowing stockings and teetering towers of gifts, we might be particularly aware of how financially stretched we are. These experiences hurt, especially at Christmas time.

We’ve gathered this set of fourteen encouraging Today devotions to reassure you that even during the darkest of Christmas seasons, God has not left you alone. Receive this free fourteen-day email series and accompanying PDF ebook when you subscribe to Today.
