As we were browsing for videos that would help us remember the true meaning of the season, we came across this particular video:
What a privilege it is to be able to celebrate the birth of our Saviour; to reflect on that most joyous occasion, and to remember His purpose here on the Earth; to save each and every one of us.
"You and I may cry out 'No one understands. No one knows.'
But the Son of God perfectly knows and understands.
He can reach out, touch, and strengthen us."
Elder David A. Bednar
Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
I just want to personally testify of the truth of this quote. I know that for many people this Christmas will not be easy. The world is in tumult. Every single day another devastating piece of breaking news is recorded across the globe - and even more pieces of devastating news are breaking our hearts.
My thoughts and prayers are with all those who will be battling through this Christmas - whether suffering the recent loss of a loved one, the hardship of marital separation, homelessness, financial struggle or debt, sickness or injury, loneliness - whatever is may be, my heart aches for you all.
Please know that God is near you, you are watched over, you are loved, you are prayed for; your Saviour is holding you.
