My life is filled with many anticipations and hopes. Time with my family, a good meal, time to play and a good cuddle. Hope is all about waiting. Waiting for the next great thing to come along. Sometimes it comes really quickly and other times I feel like I wait forever. It seems like I am always waiting for something.
But, and this is a big BUT, I know that it is always coming. So I work really hard to be patient. I also know that I need to be ready for whatever thing might come next. Eventually my girl will come home. Soon it will be mealtime. Soon I will get to cuddle on the couch. Eventually I will get to take a nap, go for a walk or get to play with friends.
It is the same with our walk with God. Sometimes I pray and it feels like I wait forever. Other times I see the answer to my prayers right away. What I do know is that if life is all about waiting and anticipation for God, then I have to be ready and watching. I need to keep my eyes out for where God is working. I need to be focused on Christmas and not on all the other distractions around me. Most of all, I need to use all my senses to be prepared so that when I do see God working in my life, then I can quickly turn to celebration. This year I will be waiting for Christmas and the celebrate of our Savior’s birth.
Prayer: Jesus, I am waiting for you. I am trying to be patient and to watch for you. Keep me focused. Amen.
