As I write this it is the first Sunday morning of Advent. It’s foggy and ugly outside my Starbucks window, but I live in Minnesota so I know snow is right around the corner which makes me so happy.
I’m an early morning person, but I know many are just now lumbering, hustling, shivering, or springing out of bed. Some to get kids dressed and combed. Some, bumping around a dark empty house or apartment alone. Getting ready for worship.
Some will be driving to church with an attitude of habitual going-through-the-motions resignation.
But for me…and for most I think, there is always a glimmer of expectation. As small as a twinkle light, but it’s there for sure. A tiny bit of hope that we’ll meet God in that worship space and hear a whisper from Him.
In the season of Advent maybe that hope shines brighter than any other time. We want to truly experience God with us.
My friend Stephanie over at Everyday Awe had a brilliant idea to help us with that. She’s asked some friends who are bloggers to do guest posts and she also will be writing so that from December 1st to the 26th you can hear different voices reflecting on the hope that we have in Jesus.
I’m excited to be the first! Check it out and sign on to get the whole series from Stephanie!
