Wednesday, the first week in Advent, and are most of us preparing our calendars to have room for the “stuff” that everyone thinks they must do, or is anyone preparing their heart to make room for the arrival of Emmanuel, “God with Us”?
Jean Wise, from her publication “Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room” (2014 by Barbour Publishing, Inc.), asks the question, ‘What is on our hands’?
God desires to give us more than anyone deserves. No one can receive these gifts if our hands are full of other things.
Have you ever tried to save time, and picked up everything you think you need, only to arrive at the door, and because your hands are full, find yourself unable to open that door?
Let us open our hands, let go of all the distractions, and then unlock our hearts, so that there is room for God to arrive!
Rev. W. Mark George
