Prepare Him Room

IMG_5234_light.jpg

During this advent season as we draw close this weekend to Christmas, can we hear the whisper of God, to open our inner lives to him too … ?

“… Thinking about justice, talking about peace, debating public policy, and working for social change are important … but not as a substitute for the very personal choice to “prepare him room” in our hearts, so that (as the saying goes) we can be the change we want to see in the world.

… how can there be political transformation in the external world of thorns, sins, and sorrow if our inner lives don’t become the manger into which hope, healing, empowerment, love, and joy are born?” – Brian McLaren, The Politics of Joy

    That is so true. Its a question I often ponder upon on a personal level. I do believe that without opening our inner lives to him, there’s certainly a void that would exist.No transformation can take place if we don’t allow HIM in.
