ADVENT MEDITATION... DAY 7
The Journey Towards Bethlehem...
The First SUNDAY in ADVENT
Year of Our LORD,
How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet
of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace;
that bringeth good tidings of good,
that publisheth salvation;
that saith unto Zion,
Thy GOD reigneth!

O Gracious Heavenly FATHER... I come to you in the name of Thine Only-Begotten SON+, our LORD JESUS CHRIST, to worship THEE. Thank you for bringing salvation to mankind, to the big and little peoples of the earth, to me.
I Thank THEE, O Holy ONE+, for being my peace. I thank THEE for subduing the enemies of my soul and bring the Light of Life to my darkened heart. Thank you for hearing my cries.
How I love Thy Holiness and how I rest myself in THEE... the Only Place of Perfect Rest! I bless Thy Holy Name and lift THEE up and magnify THEE forever and forever. In the name of the Life-Giving Trinity: The FATHER, The SON+, and The HOLY SPIRIT, I pray. Amen.
