God is available to you right now
Sometimes in our pondering of God’s great, condescending (see my previous post about what this word means) love, it is natural to think or feel that we ought to earn such a tremendous gift. Or perhaps we at times forget that God is a condescending God and we believe we must pull him down from heaven to us. The wonderful truth is that we cannot do anything, nor need we do anything to bring God down to us. Advent shows us the reality that God willingly comes down to be present with us. God is present and paying attention to you right this very moment.
Sit with that for a minute or two. Take a deep breath and… consent to reality. Let what you know to be true take up space in your heart and dwell there for while. God is with you. God is for you.
