Advent 2012: What’s Stirring Within?

Advent Day 18:  What’s stirring within?

You’ve been working so hard for almost three weeks. Preparations for Christmas. Perhaps, travel. Visits with family and friends. Work. School. Health. And Advent.

Many of your activities have been external, and you’ve been looking ahead to each event, each occasion and, especially, to Christmas.

But, also, during these days of Advent, you’ve been looking inward. Appraising, praying, seeking wisdom, preparing your spirit and, perhaps renewing faith and courage, hope and energy that have been troublesome or perhaps weakened during the past year.

So, with a few days remaining of this very powerful time, what’s stirring within you? Is your love for prayer and reading Scripture blossoming? Is your skill of listening to God more focused and deep?

Are you beginning to get answers to questions or guidance for the road ahead?

Advent is very definitely not a one-way street. During this time, the more we sit in quiet and contemplation, and the more we seek God and His wisdom, the more stirring we will feel within our souls.

Isn’t that wonderful?

Blessings for the day,

Maureen
