I woke up this morning with a phrase from a favorite hymn, “Tune my heart to sing your praise.”
Have you ever had a moment when you realized that after a day, or week, or month, that you were so focused on the minutiae of life that you were missing out on the beauty of your days? It is so easy to plow through life concentrating on details, concerns, issues … a kind of tunnel vision … and forget to look up to see the many blessings around us.
Advent is about looking up … listening, anticipating, eagerly awaiting … and there is no better way to prepare for Christ’s coming than to allow the Spirit to tune our hearts to sing his praise!
Let me hear joy and gladness
My mouth will declare your praise!
