Advent Journey Home: December 20, 2020

Odd, but I’m feeling homesick.  Not which home but it’s the feeling deep inside; a longing for something from before.  It’s a feeling, a smell, or a sound.  I’ll let you know when I figure it out.

This song caught me in the heart today.

“I will sing you home”

We’re getting close. We pray for safety, bread for the journey, and love to sustain us.

Bethlehem is just around the corner.

Knowing you

I often wonder how well we know anyone. There are secret inner parts of each soul. We know what others share with us – nothing more. Anything more is guessing, hoping, or even thoughts that are negative. We believe that someone is evil, another is too critical, or a dear friend becomes selfish for no reason.

But do we really know why? Perhaps when there is change in someone close, this is a signal that we need to spend some quality time with the individual just to listen to their story.

Do we recognise their best qualities? Change happens. This is not the time to be critical or condemning.

We read the scriptures and think we know Christ as we know ourselves. Maybe it’s time to be still and know. Time in reflection of the scriptures and in our relationship with Christ.

Do you routinely pray or spend time with the scriptures?
