Advent: Mary’s Song

WP_20151207_019

Did you have chance to read the whole of Luke 1 yesterday? It is so full of mystery and wonder, not least the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth; and also between their unborn babies!

Going deeper: As we approach Christmas perhaps you would like to write your own song to the Lord; recounting and giving thanks for all the great things He has done for you this year, for all His mercies, and His faithful presence with you through difficulties. Perhaps you are in a season where it is difficult or painful to give thanks. Try to, if you can, but if you can’t do not despair: open and pour out your heart to God, no matter how sad, angry, or bitter your thoughts or words seem in confidence that God can handle them with tender, loving grace.

Writing about my contemplative journey to come closer to Jesus. I hope to inspire and equip others on their journey.
