REFLECT – The song, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” can already be heard in department stores, but sometimes we can feel that this is the most stressful time of year! We want to have the Christmas cards in the mail, gifts purchased, and the house ready for guests, but often we feel less than prepared when Christmas roles around. When it comes to preparing our hearts to receive Christ anew, it is interesting that the prophet Isaiah does not say, “Prepare a perfect place for the Lord,” or “Prepare a long list of good things done for the Lord,” but rather he says, “Prepare the way of the Lord.”
Jesus longs for you to prepare a way for Him this Advent, by simply giving Him permission to enter into your heart. And that’s a reason to sing!
SHARE – Turn off the tunes during your commute today to spend a few moments in silence with Jesus sharing with Him your heart’s desire for more this Christmas.
