"Hope and a Future" 
Jeremiah 29:11

Advent Devotional 2018


4” In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.”     John 1:4,5

This year, our Advent Devotionals will center on the “light of all mankind”- Jesus. But because He is God, Jesus is not only our light, He is also our protection. For the 2018-2019 school year, God gave me a vision for HOPE- a lighthouse. A lighthouse is a strong tower able to withstand nature’s fury while still lighting the seas with the hope of a safe harbor; thus Proverbs 18:10 became HOPE’s Scripture for the school year. 

Proverbs 18:10 (NIV) "The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe."

As Christ came to earth as our Savior, He also came as the light of the world to guide us out of our dark, sinful existence and into eternal life with our Father, God in heaven. The praise song “My Lighthouse” by Rend Collective verbally paints a picture of God’s great mercy and love towards us as He stands as our strong tower- the Light of the world.  

My Lighthouse    Rend Collective

In my wrestling and in my doubts
In my failures You won't walk out
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea, 
You are the peace in my troubled sea

In the silence, You won't let go
In the questions, Your truth will hold
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea, 
You are the peace in my troubled sea

I won't fear what tomorrow brings
With each morning I'll rise and sing
My God's love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea, 
You are the peace in my troubled sea, 

My Lighthouse, my lighthouse 
Shining in the darkness, I will follow You. 
My Lighthouse, my lighthouse 
I will trust the promise,
You will carry me safe to shore. 
Safe to shore 
Safe to shore 
Safe to shore

Please join us this Advent season as we explore God, our Light, and His great love for us.
