This Week's Article
Of course you have noticed during this time of year the focus on gifts: gifts for family, friends, and co-workers. I would like you to give yourself a gift during this Advent season – quiet time to focus on the anticipation of the Savior.
There is much to be done before we think we are ready for Christmas. Homes need to be decorated, gifts purchased and wrapped, cookies made, programs rehearsed, and parties hosted. But we all know the gift of our Savior was given not because we were ready, but because God loved us so much that He sent His only Son to live and die for us so we can live with Him in heaven.
Our preparations may continue, but please take a few minutes each day to spend some time in God’s Word to prepare your heart for the celebration of our Savior’s birth. If you need resources, try the many listed on this website or click on www.lwml.org/resources/mustard_seeds/.
Verse of the Week
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 12:8).
Last Week's Article
God is good! All the time! He supplies our every need – even taking care of us before we know what we need. Indeed, He is an amazing God! Yet, how do we connect with God?
Consider the acronym “ASAP.” We usually associate ASAP with work to be done and deadlines to meet. Four letters can make us feel there’s no time to spare! We hurry and scurry; we might even be in the midst of a family crisis or work dilemma, with little time to meet the deadline.
However, even when our worries and needs seem to be more than we can bear, we can remember ASAP ... Always Say A Prayer. It’s better to slow down, take a breather, and ASAP ... Always Say A Prayer.
God knows how stressful life can be. He wants to ease our cares. He will respond to all our needs and He will answer us ASAP ... Always Say A Prayer.
