Christmas is coming!…….Advent is here. For those of us who believe The Story, this is the happiest time of the year. But, there are sad days, family problems, financial problems, worry over our country, worry about the way our faith has been treated lately.
I just thought I’d remind myself and all my believing commenters of the words from Isaiah 40:1-5:
1 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
2 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.
3 A voice of one calling: “In the desert prepare the way for the LORD ; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.
5 And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it.For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
Take comfort in the one who has paid for the sins, and that the glory of the Lord will be revealed.
Have a great day …. prepare the way for the Lord in your behavior, your thoughts, a conscious, intentional strengthening of your faith.
