strengthen your body + calm your mind + open your heart + connect with God
In this third and final Advent yoga practice, we soak in the truth of Emmanuel, God with us.
It’s easy to get caught up in all the noise and distraction of the Christmas season, but in this 25 minute we hit pause on all that, and just breath in the crazy loving miracle of God coming to earth.
This quote from Tim Keller sums it up well,
“The biblical God…is infinitely holy, so our sin could not be shrugged off. It had to be dealt with. He is also infinitely loving. He knows we could never climb up to him, so he has come down to us. God had to come himself and do what we couldn’t do. He doesn’t send someone; he doesn’t send a committee report or a preacher to tell you how to save yourself. He comes himself to fetch us.”
The people who walk in darkness
will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness,
a light will shine…
For you will break the yoke of their slavery
and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders.
You will break the oppressor’s rod,
just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian…
For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor,[d] Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
His government and its peace
will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
will make this happen!
