Advent and waiting

As we begin Advent, we begin waiting for Christmas and all the festivities to begin. We wait, a bit like creation, but creation is waiting for its liberation. God has delayed His return, which makes all creation wait. It waits for its purpose. Restoration. We all wait for our full liberation to our Lord God who loves us. He created us and the earth for Himself for our relationship and fellowship with Him.We and creation worship Him, and if we fail to worship, even the very stones praise Him in our place!!

Our hearts long for our Father and our soul cry out to Him. That longing and desperation can only be filled by allowing His love in and letting it flow through the whole of us – soul, mind and body.

Our Father Creator brings life. He is Life. We are alive in Him. Death is gone and holds no fear for us.

Our greatest need is for God.

We wait for Him and in Him.

We wait for the time we will be with Him and the longing this brings. Maybe this is the time to reflect on what we are really waiting for. We pray and I pray that we have the patience to wait for Gods perfect plan for us to be revealed as we begin this Advent season, and hold in our minds the lost, broken and desperate.

Bring them home to you Dear Father.

Open yourself to Him and please Lord give us the hope we need to keep waiting.
