Psalm 50:7-15; Amos 5:18-24; Matthew 18:12-14
Sometimes I think we are too busy doing for God, rather than just being with God. We can then loose the intimacy and the joy in the frenzy and the rush of life. God wants our obedience and our good works for sure, but most of all he wants us. He wants our hearts. And as we spend time sitting at his feet, our hearts are changed, we are changed.
Lord, during this busy season of shopping, parties, family gatherings and celebrations, may we make room for you in our schedules and in our hearts. May we take the time to just be with you.
If you followed along with me during Advent last year these Advent posts will be familiar. I know for me, I need to be reminded again and again to narrow my focus in all areas of my life. I also know that I can read the same scripture a second, third, fourth....time and it never touches my heart in quite the same way.
Grace and peace to you all.
