I have found it helpful to create a spiritual autobiography or a faith journey timeline to look back at the highs and lows of my spiritual journey and remember the ways that God has been with me. Like the contemporary gospel hymn says, God has been there, through it all. “Through it all, through it all, I’ve learned to trust in Jesus, I’ve learned to trust in God.” Hold on to the assurance that God is with us. Hold on to the signs from the past year that give hope and promise.
—Larry J. Peacock, The Living Nativity: Preparing for Christmas with Saint Francis (Upper Room Books, 2018)
“Your faithfulness extends from one generation to the next!
You set the earth firmly in place, and it is still there.”
—Psalm 119:90 (CEB)
Prayer for the Week
Hallelujah! God is with us. Submit your prayer to The Upper Room.
"The Upper Room wishes you a blessed Christmas season, full of joy and love, in celebration of the greatest gift of all—Jesus Christ. You can continue to spread the gift of Jesus by giving to The Upper Room.
Your tax-deductible gift of any size will impact lives throughout the world."
