For the past few years, I've chosen a word for the year. It's not magical or profound. Rather, it's a way for me to focus on something God is laying on my heart.
My advent mediations are inspired by my recent study of 2 Corinthians which ended with a beautiful benediction—the only one that mentions all three persons of the Trinity. First, I looked at grace, then love, and fellowship. Today we focus on God with us.
