It is one of the most special times of the year! The season of Advent when we prepare our hearts and clear our minds of all the clutter and noise of daily living and take time to be still and reflect on what Christmas really means. Christmas is the gift of God to all humankind – the gift of His Son Jesus. What a gift! That Christ was prepared to come into His world in the form of an innocent baby.
As we move through the Advent season take time, even a few moments, where you pause and focus on God’s incredible gift to you. Allow the wonder of God’s love for you to take a hold of your heart and mind and bring His hope, faith, joy and peace into your life this Christmas.
My prayer for you is –
For the desert places in which we walk, the streets we roam, the paths we cross: Guide our feet. Take us to places where You would go, give us words that You would use, that in this Advent season of promise and preparation we might point the way with John the Baptist to the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! Amen
