My Concrete Dove
It is the third week of Advent, and this week we focus on Joy. We’re talking about the sweet joy of the Lord, who is the joy in Christmas that lasts all year long.
One starry night in Bethlehem, shepherds saw the glory of God through visiting angels, who shared the news — a Savior is born!
Picture a star-filled night over pastureland outside of the city where shepherds are resting, with their flocks, after a long day’s work. Then, all of a sudden, they see an angel appear before them
In this second week of Advent our theme is peace. So, that makes me think about the many names we have for Jesus, one being Prince of Peace. We see in the book of Isaiah that Jesus was called the Prince of Peace long before His arrival in Bethlehem. Jesus is our Sar Shalom, the Prince of Peace, Savior, Jesus.
There is a never ending hope in Jesus, and that is the theme for this first week of Advent. Purple is typically the candle color for this week, sometimes called the Prophesy candle. The seed of hope in this Old Testament verse continues growing today. And when we look closely, it is easy to see the roots of hope in Jesus spread throughout the Old and New Testaments.
Advent marks the season just before Christmas when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus. Then, with sweet anticipation and preparation, we sing O Come, O Come, Immanuel.
Our God, Jehovah, is a relational God. Through prayer, we can have a conversation with God and build a relationship with Him. And He already knows each of us, even those who aren’t actively seeking Him.
Hello Friend, How are you feeling today? I know there are days when you are weary. That is why I’m calling on Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah, the Lord Mighty in Battle. The Lord who fights for you.
I’m sorry you experienced that disappointment. Maybe that old problem reared its painful head again, or something you hoped for didn’t materialize. We know that life isn’t always smooth going. Whatever it is, today we call on El Sali, God our Rock to remind us of His steadfastness toward His children.
Hello Friend, Today is a day of praise as we call on the God of My Praise, Elohei Tehillati, who deserves our highest praise. God is involved in every aspect of your life, so give him the thanks and praise He deserves.
Today, let’s explore Elohim Ozer Li, God My Help. Ever feel like you are at the end of your rope? Life gets hard sometimes. It sometimes seems like we make little progress despite a massive effort. Maybe that’s because we try to do it “all” ourselves. At least that’s what I’m feeling right now, how about you?
