"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold the new has come." —2 Corinthians 5:17
Dear Lord, I know that at every moment you are laboring to love me, to reveal yourself to me, and to offer me newness of life. And yet, I often go about my day barely recognizing how near you are to me. Help me to become more aware of the promptings of the Holy Spirit and to cooperate with your grace at every available moment. May this Advent be a new beginning for me.
