IMG_2909My favorite Christmas song–BAR NONE–is “O Holy Night.” The one line gets me every time, “Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices”  Falling on your knees is not a comfortable posture. And it isn’t attractive. And we don’t see if often. Perhaps because it shows humility and desperation. In 2009-2010, I battled a strong bout of depression. My morning quiet time became unproductive because I honestly just didn’t know what to pray, so my prayer journal would go days with no entries.  So I started praying on my knees. It was weird but I found it to be the most comforting moment in my day. Sometimes, the sun’s rays would beam just the right way through the shutters and I could feel the rays on my back as I was on my knees. As if God was using them to hug me. This Christmas, if it’s hard to sing “Fa La La La La, La La La La” take a line from “O Holy Night” and try what I tried.  It may be the gift of comfort you were looking for.
