30 Days of Thanks coincides with Advent this year! I am thankful for Advent. 

What is Advent? 

Advent, (from Latin adventus, “coming”), in the Christian church calendar, the period of preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas and also of preparation for the Second Coming of Christ. Are you Ready?

Are you Ready? 

To set aside to quiet our minds during the busyness of the holidays to focus on the Coming of Jesus. 

Advent a time of preparation!

 A time of preparation for the coming of Immanuel, God With Us, Jesus at Christmas. Meditate each day, read your Bible and pray. Follow my blogs as I share thoughts in an Advent devotional. Follow Always Hope and be encouraged!

Do you Long after God? 

Advent is Here! A time to Long after God. It’s Early this year starting Sunday, November 27 

To Long after God as the deer pants for the water is with all that is within us. 

If only we remembered in our very essence for we need God to live and breathe and have our being! Long after Him today just as the deer pants for the life sustaining water. 

As the deer pants for the water

A time to pray and meditate before the Lord.

LORD, What is it that God wants? A heart which longs after YOU!

As we approach Advent Lord Prepare my Heart for your arrival. Forgive me Lord for my Distractions with the busyness of life’s duties.

Lord, how I  need your help to keep My mind, and my heart fixed on you! Just as the deer is ReEnergized by the stream of water, Lord I am Refreshed by your Living Water the Word of God. 

Lord, remind me to pray continually seeking YOU more than my very Breath, just as the deer pants for the life saving water teach my SOUL to LONG for your Presence in my LIFE!
