A part of Advent is opening our hearts and lives to God’s presence, to God’s glory.
“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.” Saint Augustine
This Advent are we open to God’s grandeur? Are we letting God’s giftedness in us shine for others to see? Or, have we hidden our gifts under bushels of fear and feelings of inadequacies? Maybe it’s time to take the angels’ “Fear not” message seriously.
An Advent task for today: exert a bit of courage and do (at least) one thing to glorify God.
“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…”
Here’s to courageously letting the Light of Christ shine in and through us…
grace, peace & divine grandeur conduits
