This time of year can be very stressful for many reasons. People who have lost loved ones may not be feeling very festive. Others are experiencing financial hardships and may feel they are missing out on the gifting. Still others are recovering from illnesses and broken relationships. Many are going through the motions of celebrating, but missing the true gift of this season. Whatever your condition, you are a gift to this world. You have a destiny of blessing others.
Your future of hope is much like a beautifully wrapped gift. The outside of the package looks inviting, but covers the true gift inside. Receiving your destiny will take you through the same process as unwrapping a gift. Yes, it is a process.
The process requires removing the facade and excess wrapping. Letting go of pain and regret is not easy, but is necessary for God to complete His perfect work in you. He has given you a heart to love, hands to give, and His likeness to show the world. What’s inside is what the world is waiting for. Your circumstances won’t last long. Put your hope in God. He promised to never leave you nor forsake you.
