A Gathering Prayer

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, meaning Christmas is nearing as well. If you are graciously hosting a holiday event this season, take a moment to whisper this prayer to Jesus, a man who loved to gather all sorts of people together around His table. When the turkey turns out less than desirable, or you cannot handle one more awkward question from a distant relative, know that He cares about you, gracious hostess. He sees you are trying your best; girl, He loves you even if you can’t replicate Grandma’s stuffing recipe or your house has mismatched furniture and looks nothing like Pinterest pictures. Relish in your imperfections, and rejoice in your obedience to Him who calls us to practice hospitality with everyone. May this holiday season be filled with joy and always point you back to Him.
