“Ah, dearest Jesus, holy Child, Make Thee a bed, soft, undefiled, Within my heart, that it may be A quiet chamber kept for Thee.” Martin Luther (1483-1546) December is a time of anticipation, a time to focus on your faith and prepare your heart for the coming of Jesus. I hope these Bible verses, reflections and prayers encourage you to strengthen your relationship with Him and make the most of the Advent season. In the coming days, ask Jesus to bless you and help you truly transform through His power and life-changing force. Each morning center your day on Him and let the spirit of Christmas captivate your heart. As you experience the blessing of His Word and His promises, may you fully enjoy the many gifts of the season. Listen to the sound…

prepare for god’s light

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2 (NIV) TOMORROW MARKS THE first day of advent. A season of holy waiting, a time to prepare for Christ’s coming and reflect on the great truth of John 1:14, when “the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Heavenly Father, as we enter the holy season of Jesus’ birth open my heart and shine Your light into my life.…

gifts from the heart

The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.” Matthew 25:40 (NIV) TODAY, THE FIRST Sunday of Advent, reflect on this verse and the beautiful truth that the love you give to others is a gift to Jesus. This time of year so much effort is spent on looking for the right gifts, yet in our hearts, we know the best presents of the season are those that can’t be wrapped or placed under the Christmas tree. Heavenly Father, guide me to offer kindness, support, forgiveness and strength—help me generously give the gifts of the Spirit.…

love as god loves

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 (NIV) ARE YOU FACING a situation where you need guidance? Maybe you feel confused by a relationship or are feeling stuck or unfulfilled at work. Perhaps you just need a boost of energy. Turn to Jesus’ teachings in the Bible to find direction and guidance. Miracles happen when ordinary people serve an extraordinary God. Lord, guide me to be strong and pure. Lead me to where I’m needed. Teach me to love as You love.…

signs and wonders

So Jesus said to him, “Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.” John 4:48 (ESV) AS CHRISTMAS APPROACHES, recognize magical moments when someone or something touches your heart with the glorious spark of God’s love. Perhaps it’s the stillness of a snowy winter night that awakens your knowing of His presence, or an unexpected kindness, just when you need it. Be open to receiving His love this season. Heavenly Father, help me to be mindful and see each and every one of Your precious gifts.…

let it be

And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her.” Luke 1:38 (ESV) THE NEXT TIME an unexpected change enters your life, consider Mary’s example. In the above verse, her future had just taken a miraculous and frightening turn. She never expected to be mother of the Messiah, yet she was willing to put her trust in God and answered “Let it be.” Like Mary, when we don’t understand God’s plan for us, we should put our future in His loving hands. Dear God, guide me to respond to life’s challenges with, “Let it be.” Help me trust Your path and follow it faithfully even when I have doubts.…
