What is Advent?

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?

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

Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of Immanuel, God Wit Us, Jesus at Christmas. Begin each day and read your Bible. Follow my blogs as I share thoughts in an Advent devotional.

Do you Long after God?

Advent is Here! 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.

As the Deer Pants for the Water my Soul Longs after You, oh Lord!
Psalm 42:12

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.

Psalms 42:1-2 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

LORD, What is it that YOU want? A heart which longs for 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!

Here is my playlist of Advent Songs to prepare my heart for the coming Emmanuel! Jesus is God with us!!!
