Oh come let us adore Him.
If you just sang that, it’s okay, I did as I typed that too
Someone once share this acrynom with me and it’s stuck with me. . .ADORE.
Jesus, this is the cry of my soul: I want to adore You. This Christmas, my desire is to…
A– Accept You into that place of my heart grown distant and resistant.
D– Decide to reverse the script of old by saying: Yes, there is room for You here, Jesus. Move in. Change me. Rearrange me. Heal me.
O– Order my steps toward forgiveness and away from bitterness.
R– Renew the lovely and beautiful inside of me. Jesus, whisper reminders of life, humility, grace, gentleness, and the assurance of Your forever love.
E– Even when circumstances beg me to grow cold, Lord, help me keep the flame of my first love burning so brightly that people are forced to consider how real You are. And as they walk away from me might they dare think, Now there’s a girl who has spent some time with Jesus.
It’s been a year full of extreme highs and lows year for my family. So these reminders are good for my heart to soak in this Christmas. And I hope they speak to you too. I’m praying that you experience the love of Christ more than ever this season.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours! ~Amy
