multitude monday

my heart swells...

0056...Advent is here. the time of expectant waiting, anticipation, preparation.

a season of reflection & celebration...
of the first advent - birth of the Savior child. when God became flesh, that mankind could be redeemed.

Emmanuel, God with us.

and just as the Israelites waited expectantly for deliverance from oppression, all of creation now awaits it's redemption, the second advent of Christ (Romans 8:18-25).

we long
we wait
we prepare

truly He has set eternity in our hearts - a deep, quiet longing.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

do i hear it?
or is there too much noise in my life?

what am i longing for today?
may it be Him - Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

adding up His graces...
