Tuesday of the First Week of Advent

Readings: Isaiah Chapter 11 verses 1-10 / Psalm 72 verses 1-2, 7-8, 12-13, 17 / Luke Chapter 10 verses 21-24

Sisters and Brothers I think we need to remember that when we approach God that it may be a good idea that we have to become childlike leaving ourselves open, vulnerable to allow God’s Spirit to enter so we may be able to at least begin to hear God speaking to us. We need not waste so much time trying to approach God with our adult selves with our preconceived notions. When we do that, we stifle our own selves as we hang on to our own agendas.  Preventing the Spirit to be able to work through us.

I think if we can tap into our inner child and approach God with childlike qualities holding on to that inner child, we can embrace God with simplicity, faith, and the opportunity to open our true selves to receive God’s blessing wanting to receive God and to know more of God. If we believe in the example of Jesus, God’s servant, and if we believe in how Jesus came to God and the way Jesus did it, then we will believe in Jesus and in the One who sent him. We too can and will know that this is far beyond us. A child has no care than other to be loved. We want to learn and come to that which will complete us. In the same manner we approach a parent(s) or someone we admire. We will live learning more about the world and in the process learn more about ourselves as we come to God with open arms.
