Advent 2020: Trust in Him by Barbara Jones
“Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like tree plants they will soon die away, Trust in the Lord and do good, dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.”
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Trust In Him
I look forward to Advent because it closes the year with a special celebration of something that has been acknowledged and celebrated all year; the coming of Jesus. Not even Covid-19 and crazy political chaos can put a damper on celebrating. It is because of His coming that I have joy, hope, and peace. It is because of His coming that I have a loving church family. It is because of His coming, and my spiritual growths that I have learned to put my trust in Him and turn all my troubles over to Him. He has never failed to carry me through the storms. Thank you, God, for the blessing of Jesus.
“He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love, and wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.”
Joy to the World
Our Father, thank you for sending us Jesus, Amen

Join us in a time of reflection, anticipation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2020.
Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline. Chart and journal for yourself what God has done, what God is doing, and what God is illuminating for you in this season.
