The Christmas season is a busy season for most and it's so easy to get caught up in all that we have to do, that we forget to appreciate the season for what it is. The Season of Advent is a time to prepare our hearts and minds for what we're actually celebrating during Christmas: the birth of our Savior and the anticipation of His second coming. Join Mercy staff, Katie, as she elaborates on the importance of being fully present during this season.
I pray that, ultimately, you prepare your hearts to remember this season of thankfulness. Give thanks for what God has given you, and give thanks that God sent His one and only Son to die on the cross for you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Friends, get ready. God is faithful to fulfill His promises and He promises us an abundant life. When we live a life grateful, even for the small things, our lives start to become full, just like God intended.
Whenever those negative thoughts and feelings creep in, remind yourself that your identity isn't found or based upon what you've done or how you feel about yourself, but who you are and who you were created to be.
