“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 2:2

.

TODAY’S WORD…

In days to come the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; all the nations shall stream to it.

– Isaiah 2:2

 

REFLECTION…

We, Christians, are now in Advent – and in just twenty-one days time it’s Christmas!

Christmas is that special time when we Christians lift the mountain of the Lord above all other mountains so that all can see and come in peace and be filled with joy! But do we?

Christmas marks the birthday of our Lord and we celebrate Him with joy in our hearts as we proclaim the Good News to all who me meet! But do we?

 

PRAYER…

Father in Heaven,

thank You for giving me Christmas

– that great moment when Your Son

became flesh, like me.

 

Thank You, Lord,

for giving me reason to celebrate

and to be filled with joy and hope.

 

Faithful God,

please help me fix my mind

on the true meaning of Christmas.

 

Help me, Lord,

gratefully prepare for this joyful event

so as to celebrate it

in a manner fit for Your Son, who is the true reason for Christmas.

 

Help me, Lord,

and fill me with holy, expectant and contagious joy,

so that, by my attitude towards Your Feast and by whatever I say and do,

I will lovingly pass the true story of Christmas

on to my dearest ones and to all who I meet.

 

Come, Jesus, come!
