Can you believe it—we’re in Advent already! Whoa! How can you slow things down so you can really mark the season?
- Start with reconciliation. Confession is an important part of preparing your heart for Jesus: it will help you identify any cobwebs you may not be seeing on your own, especially in the bustle of Thanksgiving and the holiday season. Start your Advent this year with a clean slate!
- Prepare for light. We’re entering the darkest time of year, which can be difficult for many. There’s light coming, in more ways than one, but it can feel very far away. If you feel sad or just “down,” consider a “Happy Light” for light therapy. It’s hard to feel joyful when you’re feeling depressed!
- Bring music into your heart. There are so many beautiful Advent carols and songs, some of which are familiar, some less so. Take a moment every day to use them for reflection with our free book, Angels from the Realms of Glory.
Advent is a time of preparation, but doing too many things at once will always make you feel unprepared. Banish those feelings and get ready to welcome the Light of the World!
