Real women real advent stories Day 12: A host of Angels declared the glory of God, with loud singing! Heaven declared God’s plans to the shepherds. Once they arrived at the manger they delared what happened and Mary treasured it in her heart. Heaven declares Truth, God's plans, and His goodness, over us as individuals, families and communities like a loud marching band! .
QUESTION: What does God declare over you? And how do you declare his goodness to others?
Ashley: One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is the music. Songs full of joy, hope, and peace fill our homes, cars, and stores. I don't know about you, but I need the reminder. It's easy for me to get lost in the day to day tasks and forget what God has declared to us. He has spoken to us through his word and his promises are beautiful. We are made in His image. We are loved. We are forgiven. He is our good, merciful, holy creator and King. He is our strength and our shield, our rock and our fortress.
How I share God's goodness with others has looked very different over the years. During this season of my life most of my time is spent with my 4 kids. I try to teach them the Bible in create ways, declaring truth over their little hearts as we go throughout our days. As we talk, craft, read, pray, sing, and play together I have seen God do amazing things in their hearts. He is the author and perfector of our faith and I am blessed to see his work in my children's lives. As I share our activities through blogging I hope other families can experience his faithfulness as they teach their own children.
The angels of the nativity story declared God's glory to the shepherds, and one day we will join them and sing his praises with all of the saints. What a glorious hope we have in Jesus. --------------
