Let the Weary World Rejoice!

Advent opens our eyes to the with-God journey when we have focused on lesser things.

Advent Devotion for Runaway Lives

We want to live differently this Christmas season…more reflective, less hurried, embracing a different rhythm of celebration where slivers of joy can be found.

This year, we vow, things will be different.

As the season unfolds, however, we still find ourselves inwardly rushed and whizzing through our obligations. Our good intentions crumble into a heap at the feet of exponential hurriedness.

Advent invites us into a kind of space that honors our heart’s desires. Advent is seen as a time of preparing our hearts to recognize the coming of Jesus not just as a child but all the ways Jesus still comes to us today in the midst of the hubbub. Advent opens our eyes to the with-God journey when we have focused on lesser things. In this way, Advent isn’t just a season on the Christian calendar but a way of moving and being in the world.

Advent opens our eyes to the with-God journey when we have focused on lesser things.

For all those who are weary, Let the Weary World Rejoice! serves as a nourishing rhythm for our runaway lives. With a short, insightful daily devotional, Scripture reading, and reflective questions, Let the Weary World Rejoice! is the perfect tool to help you slow down and keep your heart in a place of wonder and anticipation rather than a place of exhaustion…and may your weary soul rejoice!
