Feeling burdened? Today Jesus offers hope. Do you have enough confidence in Him? Do you believe He can refresh you, encourage you and bring light back into your life?
The season of Advent, with its rich Scriptures and joyful anticipation of the birth of Jesus, can bring light to our lives if they have been darkened or burdened by the trials and tribulations of daily living. It’s an opportunity to see Christ more clearly and love him more dearly.
Recall a time when you were touched by Christ in the same way the eyes of the blind man were touched and opened by Jesus. We can see the world differently by the light of faith … and see through Jesus’ eyes rather than our own. Do you believe this can happen to you and your family this Advent? How can you help each other to make this happen?
Blessings to you and your family! We keep you in our prayers and we are grateful for the time you’ve spent with us today.
