Firm Hope

“Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord : None of my s will be delayed any longer, but the that I speak will be , says the Lord .”
—Ezekiel 12:28 (NRSV)

How long have we been stuck in phase 2? I mean. By the time you are reading this there is a chance we could be in phase 3. But if you are like me—you probably doubt it.

How long have your children (if you have kids or teens at home) been doing school from home?

How long did you have to (at the beginning of all of this) to see your family or friends?

How long did we to find out who the next president was? As I am writing this they still haven’t progressed (3 days later).

It’s been a year of ing. It’s been a year of s or s that were spoken about all of these things and more and yet not knowing when it will actually happen. Waiting is the worst. And as a general public…we don’t like to . Do you?

And yet that is what ’s people did. Wait. For a King to come them. A King that came as a tiny baby. Have you ever held a tiny, newborn baby? They are so fragile. My husband won’t hold any newborn (outside of his own and only out of necesy) because of how fragile they are. He doesn’t want to “break” them. And this is how our King came! This is how Israels King came. This was to be their they were ing on!? Yes!

I am so thankful we know the full story because if we lived back then – we might have been upset or doubted too! But , our true , came. No ing for us.

So in this season of uncertainty and ing. Fix your eyes upon and the that He brings to us not just every Christmas, but every day—every moment.
