1st Week of Advent: FOCUS
Raise your hand if this holiday season has you feeling like you need a pause button in your life?!
Okay, you don’t actually have to raise your hand, but if you’re feeling like me, then you might be feeling like you haven’t stopped going since Thanksgiving. I think that’s why this blog’s theme is so important: FOCUS.
In the Gospel on Sunday, Jesus says: “Be vigilant!” He could have added “stay focused!” Advent is a time to focus on what’s going on and what is going to happen on Christmas. Why is Christmas so important? Look around at what’s going on in the world and the reason we need Christmas joy is so apparent.
We’re looking for our Savior, Redeemer, and Friend, and when we focus and wait in anticipation, for the coming of our King, maybe we won’t feel like we need a pause button so much because we will be tuned into the waiting and preparation for Christmas.
