The world is in the Advent season, awaiting the Birthday of the King! Things are rough for many of us, but we still live in more plenty than most of the world can ever imagine. Take the time today to be grateful for all God has done for you. In our family, a situation has been resolved because God whispered “love” into the ear of many family members and friends: to one of our children because they found what they were looking for, another child and their spouse for making the initial steps possible, and a new friend who saw the earnest need and love displayed in this situation and did his part. My husband and I are acting as orchestra conductors’, helping to make sure all is in place and each player is coming in on time. I KNOW this situation is a direct answer to our prayers. We just had to step out of the way and let the Lord direct all who are involved. Is it coming together as I had imagined it to be? Are you kidding?! It is coming together as God called it into being. I find myself praising God a hundred times a day for fulfilling his promises of answered prayer. And, I know God is answering your prayers as well, for health, for opportunity, for salvation. Let us remember to look for answered prayers beyond our notions of receiving for he is there whispering “love” into your ear and the thoughts of those around you. Let us pray:
“Our loving Father, Holy and faithful is your name. May the kingdom of your love come to dwell in our hearts both now at Christmas time and beyond to the months and years ahead, so that your will may be completed within us. Today, we ask for nothing, except that others know your love, your touch, your comfort, your peace, and your grace. We just want to thank you with earnest hearts for all you have done in our lives and in the lives of those around us. You have taken our pain and sorrow and have turned them into our witness of the love and comfort you have given us and the things you have done in our lives. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty. Heaven and Earth are full of thee and our hearts are open to your indwelling Spirit to come and make its home within us. We would then be your temples to the living God. In the precious and powerful name of your son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we pray. Amen”
