Why did God come to us?
HE came because he wanted to join with us on the road, to listen to our story, and to help and encourage us, that this journey we are on…is for a reason. We may often feel like we are walking in circles, but not so. We are moving towards his house of true peace and joy. So we are not alone on our journey at all. This is the mystery of Christmas, that brings us comfort and consoles our souls. God is the God of light and love, and he sent us his son to be with us at all times and in all places, so that we never have to feel lost during our struggles. He wants us to feel that we can trust that he walks with us always.
Christmas is a time to renew his invitation to us, not to be afraid, and to let Him be our companion. Gods love is greater than our hearts and minds can comprehend. He is with us every step of the way on our journey home.
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.”
Dear Lord I seek your grace. I am only “one” in your flock of people. You have told your disciples, “Be not afraid.” I pray for your message to sink deep into my heart. I seek your assurance
…. let us celebrate peace, hope, joy and love by lighting the candles on our Advent wreath……
