|I’ve got skills.
I can wow a teen with my knowledge and use of Snapchat.
I can demonstrate a burpee, squat thrust, and a Turkish get-up.
I can bake brownies without the directions. (Did I say they’re from a box? Don’t judge me).
I can guesstimate wrapping paper to the millimeter.
I can slalom ski.
I’ve acquired knowledge and talents over time, but I’m embarrassed to admit,
I am more proficient in many of these superfluous skills than I am knowledgable of the details of The Bible.
Nearly two weeks remain before Christmas.
I’m going to be intentional and seek Him in powerful and deliberate ways.
I am starting by fasting tomorrow (liquids only until sundown), and if you’re serious about drawing nearer to God during the remaining weeks of Advent, I invite you to join me.
And not so sure about the fasting but need some prayer?
Let me know; reply to this message with your requests.
During what would be my meal times, I plan to read the different accounts of the Nativity and delve deeper to be a part of the story, not just know it.
I learned this week that the shepherds had names–whoa?! What?
And what about the innkeeper? He’s a key player, but I’ve never seen him as part of the Nativity…
As in every solid relationship, sunshine, you must devote time, energy, and curiosity in order to experience a deeper, more intimate connection.
I’m ready to get closer.
I hope you join me over the next few weeks and come closer to The One worthy of our adoration.
