It's the Advent Season which is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.
Join with me over the weeks as I prepare my own heart,
for the coming event of Jesus being born and that I can process
this in my own life to model myself after Christ.
I found this fitting prayer in our church bulletin and want to share it with you.
I sense your power,
your might and I stand in awe,
painfully aware of how poor and weak I am before you.
As I begin this Advent journey,
teach me to turn to you in humbleness and gratitude.
Help me to see the areas of sinfulness in my life
and release them to you and your cleansing touch.
Soften my heart to your invitation to
take up my cross and follow you.
Help me to be faithful to you in all circumstances.
Help me to look on those around me
with your love and care.
Only you can help me to soften,
to be like the clay
in your gentle potter's hands.'
