Seems like the Christmas season gets busier every year. The pressure to have that "perfect" Christmas, just like when you were a child, can be enormous. Shopping, cooking, wrapping, coming, and going often overshadow the moments that are meant to be perfect. We also know that Jesus Christ is the true focus of Christmas, but the busyness can place way more emphasis on the secular aspects of Christmas than on the sacred. Celebrating Advent can help you slow down, focus on preparing your heart to celebrate Christ's coming and anticipating His return.
Advent begins November 29. This season, take time out for the true meaning of the Christmas season, the coming Christ. ReFrame Media has designed a special Advent devotional series, Waiting In Expectation, to help you see God's story in your life. Click here to sign-up for the Waiting in Expectation devotional.
Daily devotions from Today Daily Devotional, encouragement from Family Fire, in depth Bible study at Groundwork, and of course, fun at Kids Corner, all come together to help you draw near to God this Christmas.
