Do you need a reminder of how much God loves you and is working all things for your good? Marina from our Outreach team shares a helpful way to tangibly mark how God relentlessly pursues us and shows His goodness, provision, and faithfulness in our present or past seasons.
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!
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.
We’re too focused on getting ahead at work or making sure our social calendar is completely full that we often just go through the motions rather than become completely engaged and present.
