Last year I wrote an Advent reflection series. Several wonderful people told me I should turn it into a book–they’re wonderful independent of that they like my writing, by the way–so I took good advice. I know, will wonders never cease? I polished them up and edited them and added a bit and voila! an Advent devotional book.
So you can now get God Enters In on Kindle, including with the free Kindle reader app, so you can read it on basically any screen. For those of you who have never tried that, the link just to the right of the book cover on the same page, where it says “Read with Our free app.” You can get there by clicking here, then clicking on the link when it pops up.
Speaking of the book cover: my brilliant, artistic nieces Aislyn and Annika designed the cover for me! Feel free to leave a comment telling them how great it is.
I’m working on getting both this and Something Like Faith out in paperback. Update! It’s available in paperback now, too! I’m a bit challenged in this area, so if anyone is handier at the whole digital revolution, I would accept help gratefully and pay you in chocolate or free books.
Of course, you can also still read the Advent reflections here on my blog. I haven’t taken them down, in case anyone can’t afford the book right now or just prefers the blog version.
Thanks for all the encouragement and support for my writing. I hope you have a blessed and healthy Advent season. I always remember this is not the easiest time for everyone and, some years, has been the most difficult for me. I do believe God is with us.

So proud of you brother. Thanks for continuing to be a light.
Thanks, Sarah! We speak up where we can, right?
I am coming to the end of “GOD enters in” Mike and have been blessed to be directed to look at and CONSIDER JESUS in the light of your reflections and challenges. This evening as I considered Simeon and Anna’s faithfulness, in the light of your thought provoking words. I thought of a previous comment – “that it is the Christian hearts desire to to see JESUS,” and when they do, they will respond as Anna does when she sees HIM. Praise flows from the thankful heart, not always in words (Ephesians 5 v19), but here she is confessing with her lips exactly who this child is, she is shouting it from the roof tops.
Keep shouting it from the roof tops Mike, “Woe is me if I preach not, The Gospel.”
JESUS, JESUS all sufficient, beyond telling is THY WORTH.
As for Simeon, this thought came to my mind as I read Advent day 20.- Faithfulness
Simeon’s heart was also singing and making melody unto THE LORD, and that having seen THE SALVATION OF THE LORD, his heart was saying these words “It is enough LORD, “I will be satisfied when I awake in THY L:IKENESS.”
“That body was Jewish and in that moment, the Jews were an oppressed people experiencing racism. Into this world GOD chose to enter.
That is our faith.”
Hallelujah what a Saviour
Amazing Grace O what sacrifice, THE SON OF GOD given for me!!
No wonder Simeon’s heart was singing at the prospect of being outside of time, in eternity. With JESUS and like HIM, no more pain, no more tears, no more curse, Just JOY UNSPEAKABLE forever.
