To capture the season of Advent in words is challenging. Depending on the season of your life, advent will speak to you in a different way. For certain, I know this time of the year gives great energy to hope. It is a season of hope.
A great prophecy of the past rings out. Jeremiah 29:11 - ”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Not only did God create us in His image, we came packaged with a set of blueprints!
And those plans are intended to fill us with a sense of longing, to provide guidance, and above all, to love and be loved.
Love came down………in the form of a baby. All of our hope and dreams are now focused on a Bethlehem manger that is full of love. And oh, what a story that tells!
