The Beginning of Advent

We all know that the higher we go, the smaller everything below appears. On a recent flight, I thought about God’s view of our physical world.  Our seemingly big homes look like tiny Legos.

Once the plane soars above the clouds, earthly treasures are not visible at all. We are such tiny specks in the vastness of the galaxies. Yet, Jesus decided to come down from on high to love on we little people, assuring us that we are anything but “tiny” in His eyes. Focusing on how He sees us is a struggle. At our jobs, we work toward earning trust and respect from our superiors. At home, we tend to give extensively, wondering if the future outcomes will match the current effort.

It takes quiet time with Him to refocus and get centered on the absolute Truth this world tends to dismiss and mock. That’s what Advent will be for me this year: Him and remembering how He sees us.

“O come, O come, Emmanuel…”

  1. That’s right because the one thing I am focusing on for the best part right now is the fact that because of Jesus and my receiving Him as my Savior, I can have a personal relationship with God my Father, Jesus; His Son and the third person of the Trinity-the Holy Spirit. To make it personal and know that as I have put my hand in His to follow Him-I can really get to know Him and it starts right here. It has been a wonderful thought to contemplate but at a deeper level in my life for the rest of this year and into 2020! Thanks for sharing. I love the way He sees us too!
