I know that I haven't written much to You recently. I have been distracted yet grateful. Help me to be mindful of what is really going on in the world. Right now, I am thinking of Christmas and how I am going to come up with the money that I need for the celebration. I am in need of enough money to celebrate Christmas. I realize that I am not going to have enough. There are things that I have yet to spend. I am glad that You have already answered my prayers. I am sorry for my sins. I am sorry that I cannot think of You other than Christmas. I look forward to the Christmas season. In fact, it has become hard for me to wait. However, that is what I have been doing for the past few years now. However, if the wait is over, then I realize that the next day symbolizes the end of Christmas. December 26 is one of my least favorite days of the year for that very reason. I am in need because well, I have no money. You are the only one I can turn to and I know that with You, nothing is hard, not at all. I have little idea which day exactly I am going to spend all of this, but I have even less of an idea what I will spend this money on. I have written and compiled list after list and I don't have enough money to cover the expenses. I ask You for financial help. I have at least kept my promise to pay for the bill me later account, which is good. However, I wish to make a promise to myself and to You that I will be wise with the money that I have received. I am praying this out of faith and commitment. Thank You, Lord, for answering my prayer.
In Jesus' name,
