Sean Hannity counts his blessings at Christmas and throughout the year

Popular talk-show host Sean Hannity says he is closer to God now than he’s ever been though it does not come without struggles.

“I would say I realize more than ever that I not only need, but I want God in my life,” he said in an interview. “I believe God created every man, woman and child on this earth. And we, as human beings, will never, ever be able to understand the majesty of this creation. You think of, how do you create universes within universes within universes? It’s beyond any comprehension and it all fits beautifully.

“I don’t think you couldn’t look at that objectively and not conclude that there is something so amazing out there that all of that was created.”

As a Christian, Hannity said he wants to “get to know that guy that knows how many hairs are on my head” and “created the majesty, the majestic universe we live in and gave me life. I would like to know why I’m here.”

Christmas allows people to slow down and get a broader perspective on life.

“At some point during that time I get really centered and then I start thinking anew,” Hannity said. “And sort of like you get out of the day-to-day grind and you begin to get a broader perspective. And then that’s when my creative side starts kicking in again. And then I start writing down a list of everything that I want to now do for the next year.”

Hannity said his faith has sustained him through tough times and contended that those who are vulnerable about their difficulties are actually the happiest.

In a response to a question in a Fox News article about making time for God, Hannity responded with his personal habits.

“You know, one of the things that I’ve noticed in my life, because we’re so busy, all of us every day…you’ve got to get up in the morning, you shovel your coffee down your throat, you got to feed your kids… You got to race off to work. And you go home, cook them dinner…study and then go to bed and pass out — and we do that five days a week.

“There’s not a lot of time for God in there,” he concluded, “but I found when I am at my best, in my opinion…or at least more at peace with myself [is] when I spend a half-hour just reading either a Taylor Caldwell book or the Bible or a Bible study. When I spend that time and make it God time, I feel at my best.”

“The raw, real person knows deep inside their heart if they’re happy,” he said. “I know a lot of people that aren’t happy in life, they’re not fulfilled in life and they never find any peace in life. This is where I go when I need my help. That is my answer. That’s Christmas to me. And Christmas is available 24/7, 365.”
