Advent Anticipation Journal

Personal Page

The Advent Journal activity for days 7, 8, 13, and 14 is to create your own journal entry to add to your book. Start by choosing a passage that is meaningful to you. Read it through at least twice, slowly, savoring the words and reflecting on the thoughts that come to mind.  Next mediate on the portion of the scripture that particularly stands out to you.  Ask God to reveal it’s meaning to you and write something about what resonates in your heart. There is no right or wrong way to approach such a spiritual exercise. As you sense God’s Spirit prompting you, dwell there.
