Most of us occasionally “get the blues”—this can particularly be the case during the holidays. St. Seraphim of Sarov helps us understand that during such times God can warm our hearts:

God is a fire that warms and kindles the heart and inward parts. Hence, if we feel in our hearts the cold which comes from the devil—for the devil is cold—let us call on the Lord. He will come to warm our hearts with perfect love, not only for Him but also for our neighbor, and the cold of him who hates the good will flee before the heat of His countenance.
