During Advent we are invited to open ourselves, even more fully, to God’s loving Spirit. One of the best ways to do this is by being still. Listening for His voice. While our world maintains a hectic pace, we have the opportunity to quiet our bodies, minds, and spirits, and prepare ourselves for God’s glorious gift of Love on Christmas day.
In this post, I share 10 habits that help me to stay connected with God (and with myself), during Advent and beyond. I offer these to you in the hopes that something here will be resonant and helpful during your Advent time.
“The Almighty appeared on earth as a helpless human baby, needing to be fed and changed and taught to talk like any other child. The more you think about it, the more staggering it gets. Nothing in fiction is so fantastic as this truth of the Incarnation.” – J.I. Packer
