It is apparent, that by definition, the word “ADVENT” refers to the season observed in many western Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the nativity of Jesus. So with this picture in mind I look at my own life knowing for sure that Jesus Christ is coming soon.
As I walk with the Lord daily this holiday season, I am reminded that I am loved unconditionally and I can rely on Jesus to fill all my needs through him. I am truly blessed and grateful for a great living situation, an appreciative employer, a very loving and supportive wife, and a brother and mother who live close by.
A verse that is one of my favorites and meaningful this advent season is Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
May the grace of the Lord be with you this Christmas.
