As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
make His paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled,
and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall become straight,
and the rough places shall become level ways,
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’” Luke 3:4-6
The birth of our Lord on Earth
The beauty of the Lord to be magnified
The Breath of Heaven bringing life
The Bread of Life nourishing soul-bones
The Living Water quenching thirst
He is coming!
Prepare the way for I want to be with Him forever and ever.
Oh, come with me to adore Him.
Let us bring Him our hearts for we need Him so.
Thank you, John, for preparing the way to the King…
the Holy Child…
the Glory of the Lord…
the Lamb of God…
the Only Begotten Son.
Father, may my heart be prepared for the coming of Your Son. May my life be lived in the light of my Savior Who will come again for me. I want this time on earth to be well spent as unto Him. With anticipation I wait. I thank You for sending Your Son to meet me in the stable, lying in the manger. Thank You for bringing the Light of the World to meet me in this world that I may walk in His Light, as I leave the darkness that surrounds. He is the Messiah and has come to save me from satan and the ways of evil. Oh, thank You. You blessed me so by watching over me for all those years when I wandered lost, when I fell down, wanting to stay down, when I cried myself to sleep because I knew You not, yet I knew Who or What I was missing in my life. I needed Him then, and still need Him now…the Savior, the Lord, the Mighty One. Yes, I need and I want You. My heart is prepared to receive the Love that You send. My heart is prepared to accept You wholly as You bring Yourself to me and to the world. May more and more seek and find You, Jesus. I want all to know You, Jesus. You are the Holy One. I lift up special people in my life that they will knock at the door only to find their One and Only Savior. Oh, how I pray this for them. May they be prepared for the coming of their Savior as well as the end of this world. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
