Advent Bible Reading For 08 December:

8. Journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem

Luke 2:5 "Joseph went to Bethlehem to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child."

Sometimes we have to go through short term pain for long term gain. Just before Mary was due to give birth (a hard enough time as it is!) they had to travel approximately 60 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem. The equivalent of walking to Bristol. Not only that they travelled by donkey, with all their belongings. This would be last thing they would have wanted to do. Tired and uncomfortable from travelling, they arrived and couldn't find anywhere to stay. Everything looked like a huge mess, but they both trusted God. He had it all under control.

Father, I give you all my situations in which I don't see the bigger picture. Help me to trust you even when I feel like it's an inconvenience and doesn't make sense. Help change my attitude through your grace. In Jesus name I pray Amen
