Day 1 - Why

    11.27.17 | Advent by Joe Dascenzo

    Warm-Up

    Pray: “Dear God, Mary was troubled and afraid when Gabriel told her that she would give birth to the Son of God. I can't blame her. I have my own worries during this season. Just like Mary, You know my worries before I even speak them. Help me to nail down why I want to put You first in my life for the next 30 days. Holy Spirit, help me seek God’s kingdom first throughout these 30 days!"

    Round 1

    Write down 3 things you are worried about concerning this Christmas season.

    Round 2

    Read Matthew 6:33-34 and Luke 1:26-33 out loud. Underline the phrase “The Lord is with you."

    Round 3

    Write down 3 reasons WHY you want put Jesus First for the next 30 days. These may or may not be related to what worries you have. Take your time doing this.

    Burnout

    Go outside for a 10 minute walk by yourself. If it’s cold, go outside anyway. Listen to the sound your footsteps make on the ground. Notice nature and the sights and sounds you hear and see. As you walk, think about the reasons you wrote down for putting Jesus First this Christmas Season. Invite God to go on this journey with you over the next 30 days. Thank Him for being with you just as He was with Mary.
