{ Prepare Him Room }



"The coming of Jesus into the world".

Just typing those words gave me such a sense of wonder and excitement and joy.  This is why we celebrate CHRISTmas. What an awesome thing to celebrate, right?  Does accepting this wonderful Jesus into our hearts make everything in our lives all warm and fuzzy and without trial and trouble?  Just looking at Jesus own earthly life will give us the answer.  Jesus, God's own Son, suffered terribly.  He was rejected and humiliated and despised.  He felt the same emotions that we do when we go through similar things, which is why He understands and often is our ONLY help during our suffering.  He also had the satisfaction of knowing He was doing the will of His Father.  Although I might  balk and fuss and not want to budge out of my comfort zone sometimes.....
oh, what peace and satisfaction of doing the thing that I know pleases my Father,  too!


The first day of December.
HOPE everybody has found the devotional or reading plan that was meant just for you to read and "ponder" during this season of Advent.  And, I pray that God speaks to all our hearts so that we can prepare Him room!

And, if you get a bit stressed because of all the business of this time of year, take some time to just......

breathe in Grace!!!
