Advent Words of Winter

Led

The question is not whether we lead or we are led, but whom do we follow? There will be times when we need to be in the lead, but at some point or another we need to choose by whom we will be led. The world around us will nudge, will suggest, will demand we follow certain people of influence, but we still get to choose whether that person should lead us or not. Let’s not ever compromise who God is making us to be and let us make sure that the one who leads us is also one who follows our Lord first and foremost.

Lord, sometimes we can’t wait to lead others, but sometimes we just want to be led. Help us no matter which we do that we seek you first to be our leader. It is you who created us, it is you who has a purpose for us, it is you who wants the best for us. So when we choose by whom we will be led help us to choose wisely. Amen.

Weary

 

The world knows not how weary it truly is. We run from place to place to find a sense of peace or rest and yet that peace is within our grasp if only we just change our focus. Distraction keeps us from that focus, but we have found at times a peace that comes to us outside of us. We can not fix our weariness by doing more, but by changing our focus on to the one who came to save us. Let us seek the one who comes to us if we only ask.

 

Lord, we know that it is only through your son that we can find rest from the weariness that weighs on our soul. Help us not to lose hope, hope that you will come to us when most needed and may we not only rest in you, but offer that hope to others as well. Amen.

Stars

The night can be so dark, but it is stars which can guide us through that dark night. It is stars which remind me that darkness never is the final condition of our soul. Though they may be only beams of light that come to us over the millions of miles they still touch the very essence of our nature. They are reminders of how far God’s love will travel to embrace us even in the most desperate of times. Stars bring us light and life through the darkness of space.

 

Lord, it is out of the darkness and chaos that you bring order and light. You touch us with the fingers of light which you placed in the heavens to remind us that you are there watching over us through out our dark night. Thank you for the stars that even though they are so far away they can still guide us to the place which we can call home. Amen.
