Daily Devotion – December 6, 2017

Isaiah 40:10-11
See, the Lord God comes with might,
and his arm rules for him;
his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.
He will feed his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms,
and carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead the mother sheep.

 

Reflection by Lynne Buell

The time I spend preparing a devotion always provides me with a period of tranquility.  This morning I truly needed these moments because we are in the midst of Advent.  (sigh)

Right now, I’m calm.  After reading these lovely words and some of the commentaries on the internet, I feel relaxed and composed.  I am focused on the true meaning of Christmas.  I’m reminded of God’s love for us.  I have the assurance of guidance from the Holy Spirit.  The promise of hope, peace, love and joy while we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

 

Prayer:

Gracious God, help me to continue feeling tranquility and serenity during this busy time, and to never lose faith in your love for us.  Amen.
