Today is the twenty-third day of December, day 23 of advent. Yesterday, I was busy preparing for Christmas. I was wrapping the presents we are giving to our sons, daughters-in-law, and our beautiful grandchildren. Tonight was more of the same as I was putting the last-minute gifts together. As I was doing this, I was praying for my family. Praying that they would draw near to God.
I hope that you have drawn near to God. I have to say writing has helped me focus on the reason for this season. I am so thankful for Ann Voskamp and how she wrote this book with so much personal application.
God’s grace is given to each of us that believe that Jesus is God’s son. Jesus is God’s immutable gift, this gift is unchanging. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. All we need is faith and trust in the truth that Jesus was born to a virgin Mary. Mary was a willing servant of God. She found favor from God.
I am in awe of God’s gift. Are you?
