Advent day 8: Preparing our heart

“As is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: “A voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth.” Luke 3:4-5

Perhaps the paths that need to be made straight in order to prepare for Jesus’ coming are those that entangle our hearts and minds. I know there are lots of things in my life that get in the way of allowing Jesus to work in me and through me.

In order to make way for Jesus to refresh and renew my heart, there are some things I need to confess and to let go of, in order that the valleys and mountains and rough ways can be smoothed out.

In waiting for the imminent arrival of Emmanuel, God with us, what might you need to do to prepare the way and make the path straight?…
