I’m really bad at waiting. Doctors’ offices, checkout lines and traffic, all test my patience in a variety of ways. But the notion of waiting is something that is essential to our human nature. We have all waited on something, sometimes even without obtaining what we have hoped for.
I often wonder what it felt like to wait for our savior, Jesus, to be born. Ancient Israel understood what it was like to wait for a savior, but when Christ was born the wait was over, the savior had been born! During Advent we are blessed with the opportunity to welcome Christ and wait patiently for his coming, just like the ancient Jews. Advent is a season that requires patience. It is also a very still season, in the stillness we await Christ to be born into our lives. Although Jesus was only born once in human history, during Advent Christ is born anew in our hearts.
During this Advent season, I hope you all experience the joy of patiently awaiting the coming of Christ in your hearts, homes and families!
