Good morning and welcome to the Advent season. I introduced it in this post last week but wanted to remind you today I’ll be going through The Greatest Gift each day until Christmas on the Facebook page. I don’t know about you, but I need some accountability to stick to something like this and sharing just a few thoughts a day will help. I just posted Day 1:
Advent Day 1: Ann starts in Isaiah 11 talking about the promise of Jesus through David. “Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot–yes, a new branch bearing fruit from the old root”
She reminds us that Christ comes small and quietly. “Christ comes small, the micro-macro-miracle who comes in the whisper and says, Seek Me.”
Love this reminder that while Jesus pursues us, he always gives us a choice and never demands of us. We have to seek him out in the quiet. This is my hope for this season–that I’m quiet and seeking and not too busy to miss moments with Him.
