As we all continue our Advent journey, we probably feel the pressure building. The pressure to get a lot of things done over the next few weeks before Christmas. We also need to feel the pressure on the inside to make more room in our hearts. If your heart is filled with love of material things or all those things that can kind of become like junk then we don’t leave any room for Jesus. Take the time and the energy to do the work on the inside. To get rid of that anger in your heart, the self centeredness, the pride, the judgment. Those things that deep down are taking up room that belongs to God. If we don’t make room in my heart now then when we celebrate the birth of Christ in a few short weeks, there won’t be any room in for Jesus to come into our hearts.
