Advent 2019 – Day 7

Thanks for coming back. We are completing the first week of Advent and looking at the theme of “God With Us.”

Sometimes I feel discouraged as I look at the huge mountain of tasks to accomplish as Christmas approaches. Gifts to buy. House to decorate. Cards to mail. Cookies to bake. At the same time all the routine tasks like laundry, meals, and work still demand my time. And this year I face major spinal surgery…again. Sometimes I feel like giving up.

But I draw encouragement from Isaiah 41:10, “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you,” and in Is. 43:2, we read, “When you go through deep waters,I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.”

Are you discouraged today? What difficulties do you face in the day ahead? God says to you, “I will be handling all of your problems today, so relax and have a great day!”

PS: here is one more musical link which ties in with our Advent theme. Enjoy!
