While Christmas is a wonderful time of year for many, hurting hearts at Christmas deepen with difficulty. Friends and family have suffered loss and grieve for loved ones. Memories from easier times or better yesterdays dance vividly in imaginations around the holidays.
The most High God chases after us, pursuing our hurting hearts to heal. I have to remind myself of that occasionally. Oh the depth of His love.
He loves us so much that He came down from Heaven to provide the sacrifice that would deliver forgiveness. And He never stops loving us, even when our hearts ache and we’re most tempted to turn away from Him…or at best, ignore His love.
Two years ago, my first ebook, 12 Days of Christmas for the Hurting, released just about this time of year. This 12 day devotional is a reminder of the gifts from our One True Love, the God of heaven who desperately desires a personal relationship with His children.
For 48 hours only, 12/9 &12/10, the ebook is just $.99 on Amazon. I would love it if you’d take a moment to download it and take the next 12 days to unwrap the gifts God has graciously given to us.

And would you share it with someone who has a hurting heart?
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Rom. 15:13
