Honestly, I’ve never really paid much mind to the weeks of Advent. I knew that in the liturgical calendar they celebrate the coming of Christmas, but aside from that and the recognition of The weeks of Advent at church, I haven’t really given Advent much attention. Maybe you’re the same way?
That’s something that I’m changing this year. It’s so very easy to get caught up in the festive holiday spirit and put all of my focus into gifts, meals, parties, and family celebrations. Those things are all wonderful things, however, if they are all that I’m focused on in the weeks leading up to Christmas, then I’ve missed the whole point!
This year I am choosing to use the celebration of Advent as a time to focus on God’s word, prayer, and a real celebration of the reason for the season – the birth of Jesus Christ. I hope that you will join me. Together we can really get to the heart of Christmas and truly appreciate the gift of our Lord and Savior.
I had the wonderful privilege to write four Advent prayers for iBelieve.com. There is one prayer per week with scripture reflections to dive into throughout that week. I will be posting the prayers each week, and my hope is that you will choose to follow along with me.
Let’s not miss it this year. Pray along with me. Dig into the scripture with me. Click the image above or copy and paste the link to your browser and let’s get to the heart of Christmas together!
