Old Saint Nick Loves Jesus: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by E. Jones Petty. Wow, I cannot believe this is the 12th and final day of A Very Diva Christmas 2017: Short and Sweet. This year was amazing, Divas. It was the most Christmas submissions we’ve ever had in 4 years of this series! I hope the shorter length of the devotionals made it easier to keep up this year, and if you have any thoughts for next year — Devotional Diva’s 10th anniversary year, please let me know! I chose to end this year’s posts and the Christmas series with this blog because it summed up why I love Christmas and doing this series so much — because to me it is how I show my love for Jesus and my Divas! The links for the full Short and Sweet Series will be below if you’d like to catch up.]

Old Saint Nick Loves Jesus

Ready or not, the holiday season is upon us once again. Costco is in full swing mode, every aisle filled with all you need for “the most wonderful time of the year.”

Yes, I am writing this the day after Halloween, but who’s paying attention to that? Although it is the most wonderful time of the year and I absolutely LOVE Christmas, there once was a time I dreaded it.

A few years back, while standing in the checkout line at a local grocery store, a kind woman asked my three-year-old sons, “What is Santa bringing you this year?” They simply stared at her, dumbfounded by her question. I scrabbled to bridge the awkward silence, “We haven’t really talked about that yet, have we, boys?” It was a true statement – we hadn’t talked about Santa yet.

Because we didn’t celebrate Santa. You see, I grew up understanding the meaning of Christmas to be all out Jesus. My siblings and I didn’t visit Santa at the mall or fill out wish lists to mail to Him at the north pole or set out cookies and milk on Christmas Eve. And I’m okay with that; I enjoy celebrating Christmas for what it is – Jesus’ Birthday.

But, wanting to avoid future awkward grocery-store-checkout-line conversations, I began researching the history of Christmas and Santa. Why Do We Call It Christmas? by Phil Vischer beautifully explained how the Santa we know today evolved from Saint Nicholas, a Catholic Bishop who generously gave to his community in need.

Once, he tossed a money bag into the house window of a few poor girls, the coins landing in the stockings they had hung out to dry. Hence our tradition of stocking-stuffers. Saint Nick gave to others because of what God had given him – the gift of salvation through Jesus.

As I read the book to by sons, warm, fuzzy feelings filled my heart because nothing the world does to secularize Christmas will eliminate the root of it all – Jesus’ birth.

Now, we are prepared for holiday season – my sons know who who Santa is and I don’t mind celebrating him – because doing so doesn’t take away from Jesus when we understand history. And God wouldn’t have it any other way!

Faith that Grows at Christmas: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

faith that grows

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by Kathy Cheek. This is the 11th Short and Sweet Christmas Devotional…I’m sad to say there are only 12 days of Diva Christmas! Here’s links for the past 10: day 1. day 2. day 3. day 4. day 5. day 6. day 7. day 8. day 9. day 10. and more information about Diva Christmas 2017.]

Faith That Grows At Christmas

There was a lady in my Sunday school class years ago whose ex-husband was in jail and she was severely struggling financially to provide for her two sons. I saw Melinda wrestle with her faith to trust God to take care of them.

I often encouraged her because I sincerely believed God would meet her needs and provide for her and her two boys. She would tell me that she wanted to trust God but the whole situation just looked so impossible.

One Sunday she came in especially discouraged because a car repair had emptied out her checkbook and she desperately needed groceries. What she didn’t know was that we had already decided to fill her pantry and every lady in our class had brought in a bag of grocery items and we had hid them in the classroom closet. We were able to surprise her with this blessing of groceries and see the joy on her face when she saw what we had done for her family.

We definitely saw her faith begin to grow after that. She still struggled but now she would say, “I know God will provide!”

At Christmas she worried she would not be able to buy any presents for the boys, but what she didn’t know was that several men in our church had taken on the project of collecting money to buy two bikes and other presents for these young boys. Melinda was right. She didn’t have enough money to buy gifts that year. But she didn’t have to because they were bought by others in our church who knew she was in a very difficult situation and wanted her boys to have a good Christmas.

When I urge someone to trust God and to have faith that He will see them through a difficult circumstance, these are not empty words. They are words to live by because I have seen God grow my own faith and trust in Him throughout the days and years of my life, and because I have witnessed it in the lives of others who have also seen God work in amazing ways to demonstrate His loving care for them.

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Cotton Mill Christmas: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

cotton mill christmas

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by Sheila Ingle. This one is a bit of Southern Christmas nostalgia! I love all the variety this year’s writers came up with for the Short and Sweet series — the only requirements were that the Christmas devotionals be Christmas-y and under 400 words! If you’d like to take a look what’s been published so far, here are links for day 1.day 2.day 3.day 4.day 5.day 6.day 7. day 8.day 9.]

A Cotton Mill Village Christmas

     There was always a Christmas program at the cotton mill school. Children memorized parts of the Christmas story from Luke, stood in a row, and recited it, verse by verse. They learned carols, and some sang solos. The school presented its program during the week of Christmas during school hours. If parents weren’t working the first shift, they attended, sat in uncomfortable straight back chairs, and beamed at their children’s performance.

In the home, Christmas trees were decorated with lead icicles and small snowflakes that the mothers crocheted. Strings of popcorn and berries were woven around the limbs. The cut trees were either a small pine or holly found in the woods and nailed to a wooden base.

At a Christmas gathering, the mill gave out Christmas bags to the children; for some families, this was the only gift their children received. The company filled the bags with a variety of fruit, candy, nuts, peanuts, dolls, and yo yos. Folks who were unable to come to the party received home delivery.

Families also received a turkey at Thanksgiving and a ham for Christmas. Wives baked chocolate and coconut pies to celebrate the holidays.

Mill families lived a hard life. It took the adults and children both working to make ends meet. Christmas didn’t erase this hard life, but for a day, they were forgotten.

Bill Shephard writes about what he bought for his family in 1935 with money he earned by cutting down and splitting wood for a neighbor.

     My Christmas earnings now totaled ninety cents! If I didn’t earn another penny, I could purchase a gift for every family member and have some left for myself, ant that is exactly what I did! A small tea-set for my sister cost a dime. A pretty box of ladies’ handkerchiefs for Mom cost another dime. A necktie for Dad, which he never wore, and a pair of socks for each of my brothers cost ten cents each. I still had forty cents left for myself I purchased a box of ten rolls of caps for the cap-pistol I knew I would get from Santa, and six boxes of firecrackers, along with two boxes of sparklers. I still had a nickel left with which to buy a large bag of p-nut brittle for me.

Mr. Shephard learned early how to stretch a dollar; all mill workers did.

Faith in What We Cannot See: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest blog by Maggie Meadows Cooper. Don’t be confused — this post isn’t by me! This is another Maggie with a toddler! This is day 9 of Diva Christmas Short and Sweet, where all of the devotionals are under 400 words! I wanted to make it easier and quicker to connect with the Lord during the bustling holiday season. Here’s links to day 1.day 2.day 3.day 4.day 5.day 6.day 7. day 8.]
Faith in What We Cannot See
My three-year-old climbs in bed with us and asks for chocolate milk when she gets up in the morning. Same thing every day. But one morning, I couldn’t find a clean cup. I chose instead to use one from the night before that had water in it. I rinsed it, poured the milk, poured the syrup, shook it all around and headed back upstairs. As I arrived, she asked, like she does every morning, “Did you shake it???” I told her I did and climbed back in bed with her. But instead of taking the cup and drinking, this is what went down.
“Noooooo! I want chocwate miwk!!!”with tears and screams. I was left dumbfounded, wondering what in the world had just happened. I had told her it was chocolate milk and that I shook it.
And then it hit me. She didn’t see me do it. She saw the cup and thought it still had water from the night before.She pushed the cup away, making a sticky mess in the process. I held her as she cried and screamed for what she wanted, not trusting that I had already taken care of what she needed and knew what was best for her. I was about to be beyond frustrated, when the Lord opened my eyes to the lesson He was giving.
Isn’t it just like us to ask for something from the Lord, but because we can’t see His work, doubt His goodness and His plan? We refuse his “cup” for us because we believe it still has the “same old thing” when He has already filled it with something so much sweeter? Then we push Him away, making a huge mess in the process?
When the angel of the Lord told Mary that she was going to have a child, even though she was a virgin, her response was mind-blowing. She responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” She didn’t laugh or make fun of him. She didn’t fret or cry or run away. She reacted in faith and waited in expectation of what was to come.
This Christmas, remember Mary’s unwavering faith in the midst of the unknown.
Believe that there is a Savior who will do what He says.
Trust that there is a God who will hold you and never let you go.
And wait patiently, in sweet anticipation, of what the Lord has in store for you.
“For faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 12:1

The True Star: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

the true star

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by Maria Drayton. All of our Diva Christmas guest posts this year are “Short and Sweet” this year to make it easier to follow along with the devotionals! If you’d like to catch up, here are links for day 1. day 2. day 3. day 4. day 5. day 6. day 7.]

The True Star

The morning air had already begun to get brisk and now it stayed darker for longer in the morning.  Daylight savings was just around the corner. The leaves displaying their multitude of shades as they drop lightly from the trees, car windows covered in the morning dew, not yet winter but knowing it’s right around the corner.

I had only stopped to get bug spray but as I stood in the checkout line I remembered, “I need to get Christmas lights!”  Feeling proud of myself that I was ahead of the game, I briskly walked toward the decorative light section.

Families get serious around my neighborhood about outdoors Christmas decorations.  It wasn’t something I was used to because I hadn’t grown up with it.  I recall one Christmas my mom couldn’t afford a Christmas tree so we settled for decorating one of her large house plants and placed the gifts around it.  So decorating was always something I dreamed about as a little girl.  I remember my favorite book as a child was an interior decorating and design book.  I would look at those pages and just imagine living in one of those homes, decorating it all myself.

Now that I could use my decorating skills, I ran with it and became obsessed.  The focus of Christmas had shifted and now everything got decorated, even the bathroom.

In my neighborhood, decorations spring up right after Thanksgiving, sometimes even before.  I was beginning to get accustomed to going all out. It had gotten to be so much that my seasonal decorations now needed a bin.  This year I was planning to go back to a favorite of mine, the Star Shower.  But this time I opted for the Star Shower Motion.  None of this seemed to bother me until I was challenged to write on the topic of Christmas.

That’s when I realized what it had become in my home, a time to decorate.  It hit me like a ton of bricks.  Not that I didn’t know that I overdid it but that it had become my primary focus during the holidays.

Christmas should be about the true star, Jesus Christ, the Lord himself, who died for us and chose to save us.  As the holidays approach I am humbly reminded;

“For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

With this in mind, I am making some much different plans this year and hope you will too!

Our Immanuel: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

our immanuel

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by Agnes Amos. I hope these Short and Sweet Diva Christmas devotionals are blessing you this season! If you missed any, here is day 1. day 2. day 3. day 4. day 5. day 6. and more information about this year’s Diva Christmas series.

The Baby in the Manger – Our Immanuel

My friends, Christmas for me once meant the warm feeling of smelling and drinking peppermint tea; cocoa; gifts under the tree; the lights and the gigantic tree in the malls and of course the hyped consumerism that goes with it.  Over the years, this meaning changed when I met people from all walks of life sharing how lonely this season has become for various reasons. The change for me was three-fold:

 

  1. The season reaffirms the presence of Immanuel (which means “God with us”) (Matthew 1:23). I don’t know about you but I find this reassuring in a world where we all sometimes feel lonely and alone. The Lord himself, is saying He will be with us. He will neither fail us nor abandon us and all we need to do is reach out to Him.

 

  1. It is the season for serving others – reflecting on what I can do for others rather than what they can do for me; checking in on the less privileged, lonely and alone folks in our community – showing them the love of Jesus by helping and serving them.

 

  1. It is the season to give generously – Christians ought to be the most generous people on earth because of what Christ has given us.

 

Christ follower, rethink the meaning of this joyful season – experience Immanuel; serve others and give generously.  If you are currently not a Christ follower, ask Jesus to come into your life this season and you will experience His presence.

 

All glory to God!

Our Finest Christmas Tree: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by Sandra Samoska. Well, that’s week 2 of Short and Sweet Diva Christmas in the books! Catch up with our abbreviated devotional series by following these links: day 1. day 2. day 3. day 4.  day 5.]

Our Finest Christmas Tree

When I first got married, there was an intense debate over the proper Christmas décor for our new home together. My husband insisted on Santa Claus, while I was equally adamant that snowmen were the way to go. Finally, we decided Christmas décor wasn’t worth our marriage, and we compromised by decorating with Christmas trees.

Each year we would pick out one new tree to display in our home – sometimes large, sometimes sparkly, and always different from the rest. We would arrange them on the fireplace mantle, and as we added to the collection each year, they spread out to other areas of the house.

One memorable year, the recession hit. I was a stay at home mom caring for our two young daughters, and my husband’s hours got cut at work. There was barely enough money in the budget that Christmas to keep the electricity on, much less to buy decorations.

One evening, as we were putting out the trees we had collected, my husband went out to the garage and came back with a small wooden tree he had cut out from a scrap of wood left over from some forgotten DIY project. It was unadorned and unpainted, with none of the pizazz of our other trees. It was also considerably shorter, and some of the edges were rough to the touch.

With tears in my eyes, I took that short, plain, perfect tree, and put it up with all of the rest.

“He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.” Isaiah 53:2 NIV

Every year, as I unpack our trees and put them up, I look at my little wooden tree that was humbly cut by my husband, and I think of the gift God gave us that first Christmas morning. Of that baby, born in a lowly manger, come to take on the sin of the world.

He had no majesty to his appearance, and yet His entire purpose was to bring glory to God. He didn’t sparkle, glitter or shine, and yet He was the light of the world who rescued us from darkness.

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 NIV

He Came to Save! Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by Priscilla J. Krahn and is part of the Short and Sweet Christmas series. Want to get caught up with the series? Here’s day 1. day 2. day 3. day 4. and more information about Short and Sweet. Please continue to enjoy and have a merry Christmas season!]

 

HE CAME TO SAVE

The smell of pine, the dropping temperatures that freeze your nose, peppermint fudge and lattes to dazzle your senses. Lights everywhere, carols you’ve heard a million times being played through every shopping mall, family traditions, and a baby in the manger. It’s Christmas.

Jesus is the reason for the season! You’ve probably heard that phrase. Yes, the baby in the manger, is the reason for the season, but why? Why does Jesus’ birth mean so much? At my house, we have a lot of Christmas traditions, and one of the ones that I’ve gotten involved in a lot the last few years, is a giving tradition. We wrap up DVDs that shares the gospel, tie a candy cane and bow around them, and go around the town giving them out door-to-door. Why? Because the baby in the manger was more than just a baby, and He didn’t come just so that we can celebrate with eggnog and bonbons.

1 Timothy 1:15 says, “…Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;” That’s why He came. It wasn’t to give us a holiday, it wasn’t to be born in a manger, He came to save sinners. At Christmas time, a time of giving and remembering the gift that God gave, my family and I give the gift of Christ to others. The reason for the season is not that a baby was born in a manger. The reason for the season is that Jesus came to save us!

The shepherds left the manger and told everyone what they had seen and heard! How often do we tell people what Christ has done in our lives? How often do we ‘go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and EVERYWHERE’? Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners! What better time to receive His gift of salvation, then at Christmas. If you’ve never accepted Jesus’ gift of salvation, He’s offering it to you. If you have accepted the gift, how can you share that gift with others this Christmas?

Easy ways to share Christ at Christmas, include sending a gospel tract with each of your Christmas cards, giving gospel tracts to cashiers as you shop, and showing the love of Christ to all. Let’s take this Christmas to tell everyone about the greatest gift. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners!

Blessed and Highly Favored? Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest post by Brittney Robinson. Welcome to week two of Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals! Here is Day 1. Day 2 and Day 3 if you’d like to get caught up, as well as more info about the series. All devotionals are under 400 words so you can whip right through them while still connecting with the Lord during this busy season!]

Blessed and Highly Favored?

Luke 1:28 “And having come in, the angel said to her, ‘Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

Naturally, we want the Christmas story to be a happy one. It’s our tendency to romanticize events even in the Bible, but sometimes the most significant stories are filled with pain, disappointments, tragedy and grief. Mary’s story within the Christmas story is one that has always fascinated me in that way. If I could talk to her, I’d love to hear her take. Not the commercialized, glamorized story we may tell. I mean the story that is less celebrated. The complex, complicated and contradictory experiences. I can only imagine what Mary would say. For now, here is my take,

I have often found conflict in myself as I looked at other people’s life (not a good idea) and looked at my own then wondered “Am I blessed? Does God favor me?” In observing other people, I thought they were blessed because of things like a career, a courtship, good health, happiness and simply things going just right. I thought to myself, this is what it means to be blessed and highly favored.

Mary’s story helps me to see that blessing isn’t always where the happiest person is or where there is no complication, and favor doesn’t necessarily make things easy. I have experienced those times too, but there is another side to the coin. There is a side where blessing and favor hurt. There are parts of the story where things are painful and seems unfair. In Mary’s life the initial declaration of being “blessed and highly favored” proved to be a test of her faith. How many times, I wonder, did she have to recall those words and choose to believe them when she didn’t feel them?

When there was no room in the inn.

When she and Joseph lost Jesus.

When the Romans tortured and crucified Jesus.

The purpose of God’s declaration of blessing and favor is not to look like it’s all going well. It is to be tested. Every word from God has the purpose of perfecting our faith. If you find yourself this Christmas in a place where blessing doesn’t feel like blessing and favor hasn’t exactly made things easy, remember Mary. I believe she would tell us the trial of our faith is worth it in the end.

What CHRISTmas Means to Me: Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals

what Christmas means to me

[Editor’s Note: This is a Christmas guest blog by Ubwiza Chiyungi. I hope you are enjoying the first week of the Short and Sweet Christmas Devotionals, and that maybe their abbreviated length this year makes following along a little easier this year! Here is day 1. day 2. and more information about the series if you’re interested.]

 

CHRIST in Christmas

When I was younger, my family never celebrated Christmas. The only reason I wanted to celebrate Christmas at home was I wanted presents/gifts, since all the Christmas movies I saw showed Santa Claus as source of presents. I like Santa Claus. I wasn’t much of a Christian then and my parents still don’t celebrate Christmas today due to their religious beliefs. I am now a Christian when I think about Christmas now, I think about the greatest gift God gave to mankind Jesus Christ. Now no earthly gift can be greater than that. He is the CHRIST in Christmas.

Isaiah 7:14 NKJV

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
