18 All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, 19 but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. 20 The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them. - Luke 2:20
Going back to work or getting back into a routine is always a little tough. If you are feeling a little overwhelmed by the start of a New Year why don't you reflect on the attitude of the Shepherds in Luke 2. They went back to their dull, ordinary lives, tending sheep, but their return to work was different because of their encounter with Jesus. We too can return back to our routines knowing that we have witnessed the blessing of the Saviour's birth.
Prayer thought: Ask God to change your mindset today and remember that Immanuel is still with us.
Living in Grace
