    If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings, who would stand a chance? As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit, and that’s why you’re worshiped. Psalm 130:3–4 MSG

    A Time to Think

    Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness. —Billy Graham

    A Time to Act

    Know that because of Jesus’ promise to forgive, no matter how many mistakes we make, or problems we create, we can still receive His ever-renewing mercies.

    A Time to Pray

    Lord God, thank You for forgiving me—for lifting guilt from my heart and filling me with Your grace.

    December

    I didn't see one(a time to think,act and pray) for Dec. 1st but here is a Advent Guide:

    Prepare your heart to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ
    As you get ready for Christmas, step away from the busyness of the season to focus your heart and your family on God’s greatest gift—His Son, Jesus Christ.

    Devotional Billy Graham wrote four Advent meditations that will help you reflect on Christ’s birth and honor Him this holiday season. It’s our prayer that the Holy Spirit will shine His light in your heart and help you focus your Christmas celebration on the Good News that “unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11, ESV).

    Prepare your family to celebrate Christ’s birth

    “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only son”
    John 1:14, NIV
    Billy Graham’s advent devotional, Arrival: Preparing to Celebrate Christ’s Birth.

    Christmas is a wonderful time to start a family tradition, especially when it’s focused on celebrating the coming of Jesus Christ. We pray that this guide will help you and your loved ones meditate on the Savior—and that it will become a blessing to your family for generations to come.

    As you gather your loved ones for these Advent meditations, we pray that the Holy Spirit would shine His light in your hearts and bring focus to all your Christmas celebrations: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11, ESV).

    May God fill your home with His peace and joy this Christmas.
