50 Days of Hope: Day 43 : Patient Waiting

‘Hope is not a feeling. It is a decision — a choice you make based on what we call faith or moral conscience, whatever most deeply motivates you…

This season of Advent, in the Christian tradition, is a call to patient waiting…

Christmas is the celebration of God literally coming into the world in order to change it…

Patient waiting just means we don’t ever know when and how something will change, and we really can’t control that.’

Jim Wallis, Sojourners

 

The biggest change has already happened. In the most extraordinary way imaginable.

“A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Saviour who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.” Luke 2 v 12

Tonight I celebrate the patient waiting and the hope of those who were given that message. Who hurried to Bethlehem and believed in the hope that was promised.
