It is my Advent Prayer to focus on what truly matters.
What prepares your heart for the Lord? Is it the decorations, the queued menu, palatable dishes, glitz and glamour of shopping carts or the fanciful Christmas tree?
The Lord is passing by your home do you have room for Him to stay?
Is your heart available for Jesus? Or is it filled with other things?
I invite you to sit under your tree or on your couch, or on the front porch. You know what, go ahead choose anywhere serene, peaceful and not distracting.
Quieten your heart.
Reflect on the purpose of Jesus here on earth and let your heart worship Him.
It’s deep and refreshing to know the saviour of the world was born for our sake. This is an invitation to receive Christ and to have Him resident in our lives.
Our homes should bask in that glory!
We can’t adequately prepare our home without first talking to the Lord about it. right?
Here is a prayer for your home.
How to prepare your heart for Jesus
If my heart doesn’t capture the essence of His coming as a mom and a wife, my home somehow would reflect that. Everything becomes about all other things except Jesus.
Dear moms, we need our hearts prepared and focused.
One question I ask myself when my heart is noisy and pulled in many ways….Is the Lord in this?
This question brings my heart to focus.
It is important to guard your heart with all diligence.
Advent is beyond the gifts, the activities we line up for ourselves, the cooked meals, the partying, and the trips to and fro the malls….whatever is on our to-do ’and‘ to-get list!
Jesus in our hearts and home is what truly matters in this season.
To prepare your heart for advent is to accept Jesus as the Lord of your life.
It is to choose Christ over the world.
It is to remind yourself of His return and prepare yourself for it.
Yes, the Lord is coming back again, would He find us ready? Or are we going to be too occupied for Him?
His return would be in an unusual way, like the first, are you prepared to meet Him?

A Prayer For Your Home At Advent
Lord, may my home glorify you.
Let all the sparkles ring your praise.
Let all the glowing lights echo your goodness.
Let every foot be welcomed, and receive divine blessings.
Let every voice be lifted up in worship.
Let every heart in this home desire you more than anything else.
Let all the gifts be about you alone.
Let the meal we share at our grace table remind us of the peace we have in Jesus.
Let every drink pull our hearts to the fountain of living water.
