Advent.

A season of waiting, longing.


Come, Lord.    Break through, God.    Keep your word.    

Do something.


Advent is the first season in the Christian calendar. Before Christmas, there is Advent. Less glitz and glitter, more lighting a candle in the darkness.


I think we need this season of Advent. I think we really need it this year.


This season of standing by the window, staring into the dark, wondering when the sun will rise. Waiting for the sun to rise. 

Trusting the sun will rise.


The Lord will keep His word. 
The night is nearly over, the (new) day is almost here.


We are weary, Lord.    But we dare to hope.


As your people waited for the Messiah, the first advent, your arrival, born in Bethlehem.


We wait for you to come again. To right all wrongs, 

to wipe away our tears, to make all things new.


Even now, even here...come, Lord.


Will you meet us in our weariness? 

Will you deepen our joy in your presence? 


Will you surprise us with your goodness? Come, Lord.
