"Make us, we beseech thee, O Lord our God, in watchfulness and eagerness to look for the coming of Christ Thy son our Lord; that when He shall come and knock, He may not find us sleeping in our sins, but watching and exulting in his praises."
~ Gelasian Sacramentary
Much of the time I try to "think" my way into a mindset of faith. I tell myself, "Your mind has wandered away and you've forgotten who you are and who you aren't."
It is as if my awareness of Jesus and my journey are my own doing. I know this is not true.
This morning as I pause. I'm going to light a candle and wait.
I'm joining Floss for A Pause in Advent. Click over there if you would like to read the collective pauses.
