Thanksgiving has come and gone. I’ve spent much time reflecting on all that God has done in my life. I am still working through a few things, digging deep to find the “attitude of gratitude”, but it is an area of my life that I must allow Him to bring healing. To be thankful in ALL circumstances is a place where I want to live, continually expressing praise and gratitude to the One who has given me so much. I don’t want to focus so much on the many blessings He’s given to me, although there is nothing wrong with that. I want to turn my attention to receiving Him, the Savior, the greatest blessing of all.
During the month of December, I will be sharing a little bit of how I am preparing my heart to receive Him. I don’t have any scheduled posts, no plans to post on the same day each week, but with the exception of the Five Minute Friday and Fresh Brewed Sundays, I will be sharing a glimpse into how I am allowing God to move my heart towards Him this Christmas season. I hope to do this at least once a week, on Tuesdays, leading up to Christmas, or as God leads me.
I want the posture of my heart to be one of wide open acceptance, to receive Him fully, without demands, or without expecting anything in return. I want to receive Him and all that He is, continually. I want my heart to be wide open to this gift. I want to unwrap Him fully, encountering the mysteries yet to be revealed.
