Create space for God this Advent

“The Lord is coming, always coming. When you have ears to hear and eyes to see, you will recognize him at any moment of your life. Life is Advent; life is recognizing the coming of the Lord.” Henri Nouwen

Advent is approaching. For some people it is a hectic time of the year, others love it.

What about you?

It is good to be intentional as the Advent season is at the door. Decorate your space, perhaps with Advent wreath. Every week light a new candle and ask God to bring more light into your life, into your heart.

Take a moment in your days to stop, pause, take a deep breath & know that God is with you.
You are not walking alone.

Pray with Scripture. Take the Sunday Gospel & sit with it for 20-30 minutes. What stands out? Where is God speaking to you?

We will be preparing for Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Jesus with a renewed awareness of God’s goodness. God brought us His presence in Jesus, but know that He longs for your presence too. Your presence is a gift to God. And a gift to those around you.

Gratitude helps us see the good that already is in our lives.

Have a fruitful Advent this year.
