Anticipating His Coming

Advent, defined by Merriam-Webster, is the period beginning four Sundays before Christmas and observed by some Christians as a season of prayer and fasting.

This December, how are you celebrating and observing Advent? I thought I'd share a few wonderful resources that I am familiar with to help you prepare your heart for Christmas! This list is not extensive, as there are MANY great Advent season resources. But I hope you enjoy these and jump in... it's not too late ;-)

  • 25 Days of Christ by Redeemed Girls Ministries -- this is what I am primarily using this month as my daily time with the Lord and I am absolutely loving it!
  • The free YouVersion app has topical reading plans to take you through the Christmas story in Scripture-- an excellent resource.
  • Transformative Vision a fabulous and practical resource that Jacob's Well, our church here in New Jersey, has put together.

And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” - Luke 1:30-33
