Advent…watching for Him who is enough

I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guard post. There I will wait to see what the Lord says.

Habakkuk 2:1

we all struggle

fear creeping in

Headlines knocking at our fragile doors

we all struggle

As the cold can move you deeper toward the fire, struggling can move you deeper toward God, who warms you with joy. Struggling can deepen joy….the secret of joy is always a matter of focus: a resolute focusing on the Father, not on the fear.  – Ann Voskamp

ADVENT – the One who came to bearing into our struggles with us

Ann asks and will you join in answering

What are you waiting on God for right now?

Where have you seen blossoms of goodness even in the most unlikely places?

Thank God for the grace to rejoice amid the broken places.

Poem

waiting …

that always the case

waiting

when will it stop

will I ever just be fully satisfied or will I always want more

deliver to my heart and mind inspiration

new and fresh way to go

as you have done before

showing up at just the right time

and even that is in the waiting

blossoms of goodness

His love

joying in those around me

seeing light and life in others

smiling and laughter

togetherness

always a crack of light in the dark cocooned places of me

Than you for the broken places that shine your light

I rejoice in thanks for your grace

I praise your holy name
