Can you believe it’s almost here? Does that make you feel excited? Nostalgic? Anxious? In the busyness of the holiday season, it’s easy to find ourselves distracted from the reason we’re celebrating: the gift of Immanuel, “God with us.”
Advent begins today, December 2, giving us these four weeks leading up to Christmas to reflect on something truly awesome: the miracle of God choosing to enter the world in human form! We’ve selected these Plans to help you align your heart and mind with biblical truths about who Jesus is, and what his sacrifice means for our lives today:
Studies have shown that people who practice gratitude report experiencing more joy and pleasure, express more compassion and generosity towards others, and are even less likely to get sick.1 But it can be hard to sustain that spirit of thankfulness, especially when holiday busy-ness distracts you from the celebrations going on around you.
Here’s an easy way to set a daily gratefulness reminder: Start a Plan from our special collection of Thanksgiving-focused devotionals. Plans feed you a little Scripture every day, giving you a few moments to reflect, recharge, and hear from God’s Word.
“My mind was completely broken. And, in those dark days I couldn’t see a way out. Hearing the Word of God was growing my faith, and it was amazing. Through that, I found healing. When I had nowhere else to go, He showed up in a real way.”
The Bible offers hope and wisdom for every challenge we face, no matter how big it seems (or how small). And, when we listen to God’s Word every day, He can completely transform our lives.
In the video above, see how this simple practice led to spiritual, physical, and emotional healing for one veteran and his family, as he journeyed through Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury.
Daily Hope and Healing
This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.
By giving you just a little to read, watch, or listen to each day, Plans help you stay anchored in God’s Word, especially during life’s storms.
