Despite what the songs say, the holidays aren’t always merry and bright for everyone. Some are struggling with grief and painful memories. Some are dealing with the stress of strained relationships. Others might be too preoccupied with current challenges to enjoy the season. Still others may have never had the opportunity to experience the joy of the season.

Whatever the reason may be, we want you to know that God sees you and He cares. We’ve dedicated the December issue of Think magazine to a few Christians who have stories of great struggles. They share a look at the painful struggles life can bring and how their faith has aided them through such times.

If you’re going through such times, we hope this issue is an encouragement to you. If you are not, we hope the issue is a reminder of the importance of noticing, loving, and supporting those who are hurting.
