Subject: Advent Day 12 - Yesterday
Message:
 

 I didn't write out my Advent post yesterday because it was confession-o-rama with God.  It was wonderful.  I needed to break down before Him and get out some junk.  I was able to see so clearly that I have sat down things that are important and have chosen things that are not important or life-giving - things that rob me of joy.  Dang-it, why do I do that?   I was heartbroken.  I have the knowledge of salvation!  Walk it girl!  But sometimes I am cloudy with fear and I choose to manage and control rather than relinquish and breathe.  

The word that played over and over in my head yesterday were, prepare the way.  He has made a perfect Way for us, He has given perfect love, He has prepared for us and extended forgiveness.  I saw a beautiful picture of me preparing in prayer; praying for others.  

The scriptures that God used yesterday were Luke 1:67-79, the incredible prophecy of Zacharias and then Mark 1:1-8, John come to life.  

Psalm 54.  "Behold God is my helper, it is the Lord who sustains my soul."  Whew, that had me.  So the rest of the day was just that, letting Him sustain me.  I have issues with letting.  I have had some wrestling going on.  

Bless you and the Merriest of Days, 

Paula
