This Advent season has me thinking of hope… and longing. Have you ever thought of how God’s people felt over the many years they waited for the Messiah? If they are like me, they were disappointed along the way. They wondered what God was doing, struggled to trust in His plan, and wondered if he would ever fulfill his promise.
Sometimes (oftentimes, it seems at the moment), life doesn’t go according to plan. I don’t do very well with waiting. Maintaining hope, trusting things will work out, and looking for the joy in uncertainty are not my default reactions. I search for inward peace… and peace in relationships… on a fairly regular basis, and certainly when life isn’t going to plan. Today, I’ve been amazed all over again at how, through his Word and the prayers of his people, God can cause hope to spring from hopelessness and breathe peace into turmoil.
He can and will do the same for you.
WFW is not about books, authors, artists.. it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word.
