Advent…When all the miracles begin

He will prepare the people for the coming of the Lord.

Luke 1:17

Do you believe in miracles?

That God is at work

the small and seemly insignificant beginnings of a miracle…

like a little boy in a manger

who is the CHRIST from on HIGH

God meets us right where we don’t believe. – Ann Voskamp

When our dreams are long thought to be dead

When our hopes are dashes and we sit in ashes

God is ready and able to make us alive

ADVENT – His grace comes to breath life into barren places

Ann asks and will you join in answering

During what seasons of your life has God seemed most silent? Looking back, can you hear the quiet echoes of Him speaking, even during those times?

How have you sensed God’s presence – His glory sparks – around you lately?

Spend time basking in God’s presence, asking Him to fill your barren places with more of Himself.

Poem

That 2 years that the whole world fell in

death and separation

hurt and pain

loss and less

I wondered where He was and what He was doing

I can remember certain moments

when His voice whispered in

soothing my soul

giving me hope

like a little rope tethering me to Him

“Don’t worry about tomorrow, God is already there.”

a simple statement rope for my soul

that held my thoughts and heart firm to His goodness

That same statement holds me still

a resting place to park my ship

so that I do not go off into the sea in need of rescuing

I simple stay in port with my king

it is there His arms hold me

and I am safe without need of anything but Him

where satisfaction in Him

is plainly the key to rest

Come fill those places God I sense but don’t yet see

fill me with You and I will never be tempted to leave

this little port you made for me
