Let us shout for joy at the presence of the Lord, for He comes!
For He comes.
So much of waiting is about surrender. We have to give up control. We have to give up our plans. We have to give up our desires. We have to give up our timing.
But, He comes.
He comes in our weakness, in our fear, in our tears, in our pain, in our grumbling.
He comes in our joys, in our triumphs, in our learning, in our growth along the way.
He comes in our family, in our friends, in small kindnesses of strangers, in sharing our journey with others.
He comes in the unexplained peace and the unending darkness.
He has come, He is here.
And He will come in answer to our prayers. What the answer will be, how it will look, and when it will come, I have no idea. But He will come.
