Our pastor read this to us in our staff meeting today and I made a copy so I could post it. I pray you have room for Him every minute of every day in all things you do this wonderful Advent season. I am completely in awe of Him and thankful for His love for me. I praise Him today because He is truly everything.
In Search of our Kneeling Places
In each heart lies a Bethlehem, an inn where we must ultimately answer whether there is room or not.
When we are Bethlehem-bound we experience our own advent in his.
When we are Bethlehem-bound we can no longer look the other way conveniently not seeing the stars not hearing angel voices.
We can no longer excuse ourselves by busily tending our sheep or our kingdoms.
This Advent, let’s go to Bethlehem and this thing that the Lord has made known to us.
In the midst of shopping sprees, let’s ponder in our hearts the Gift of Gifts.
Through the tinsel, let’s look for the gold of the Christmas star.
In the excitement and confusion, in the merry chaos, let’s listen for the brush of angels’ wings.
This Advent, let’s go to Bethlehem and find our kneeling places.
