Happy December 1st, Prayer Warriors!
It is the wonderful season of Advent and my heart is exceedingly glad!
If you've been wandering around in the dark, feeling weary, perhaps thinking God has stopped listening to your cries, then rejoice! In actuality, even when we are unaware, he steers us to the light, carries the load for us, and tenderly hears every utterance from our mouths and hearts.
God does those things with love, because as a friend says, "That's just how He rolls."
He does those things even when we protest and are arrogant with Him. He's still actively at work in our lives. God proved His incredible love for us by sending His only begotten Son to live among the filth of humanity. No matter the dirt or pain in our lives, Jesus is the light.
My prayer for you today is for Jesus to light your way. Lean on Him, even when it appears you can't feel Him.
With open arms.
Arise, shine; for your light has come!
