I have a hope for you this Advent.
Too often this time of year is simply a race from one errand to the next. Buy that gift, wrap this present, decorate that place, go to this party, visit that person, put up these lights . . .
There is so much to do.
When was the last time you didn’t do? When was the last time you took time to just be?
This Advent, I invite you to put aside the tasks piling up—the tasks that feel urgent and that are begging for your time and attention—and take a moment to just be.
This is one of my hopes behind BEST ADVENT EVER—that it will encourage you to set aside a few minutes each day for quiet prayer and reflection. Time to just be. Time to be with Jesus, who seeks you in a special way this time of year.
BEST ADVENT EVER will draw from Dr. Allen Hunt’s Bible study, The Turning Point, to help you experience the fullness of Advent rather than the deluge of holiday preparations.
This is what I hope for you this season.
I hope that you pause. I hope that you breathe. I hope that you rest. I hope that you are fed and nourished by time alone with the one who came to save you.
God bless you and your loved ones this Christmas,
