In an ideal world, Advent would be spent in quiet contemplation, meditating upon the wonder of the Christ-child, and anticipating his return as our Saviour.
Instead, we enter arguably the busiest month of the year. Have we booked time off to see the kids’ Nativity play? What’s the Secret Santa budget? And who became a vegetarian this year?
Perhaps, though, it is this busyness which can be the key to a deeper connection with Christ. Perhaps these Christmas ‘trimmings’ have the potential to teach us more about God. And, as we open our hearts and minds, perhaps we will discover that the Christmas story was busier, messier and more haphazard than we ever imagined.
In this unique devotional, written for busy people, I help you to use the festivities around you to fix your eyes on Christ, deepening your relationship with the Father God who sent him. Born out of my own experiences of struggling to maintain any kind of spiritual focus throughout December, I offer gentle encouragement, empathy, entertainment and challenge as we delve into the Bible – and our busyness – together.
