JOY IN THE JOURNEY! Advent 2020 Devotional 1

December 1, 2020
John 1:1-5


Jesus is always there, light or dark. Hard or easy. God’s always with us. Sometimes we don’t think about it, but He’s there anyway. God’s always there, even when we don’t pay attention or consider it.

We should never be too busy for God. It’s too bad when we lose the basis of the church being center of our Sunday. So many people just don’t have time. It isn’t less important, but all ages struggle with finding time for church. Many just don’t think about church much. In our busy world there doesn’t seem to be time to think about God. Our priorities need to be different.

God’s light is stronger than the word’s darkness, but it’s fading when we’re going anywhere and everywhere except church. Not just Sunday, either. I used to really get a lot out of Bible Study groups during the week. I can’t go to studies or read anymore. So, do it now when you are physically able!

And, do the best you can in all circumstances.

God, help us to take time and make time for you, the church and your word. Amen
