“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14 NIV
Mary waited for the Lord. While she lovingly prepared for the birth of our Savior, she allowed God to guide her. And, even in the midst of worry and wonder, He showed His presence in her life. He led her on a path of purpose and readied her to welcome our Savior.
God blesses the heart of our faithfulness. He humbles us. He nurtures the strength of His Spirit and provides peace to welcome calm. He guides us by the power of His will and reminds us to keep on going… And, He teaches us to be patient while we WAIT on Him.
Sometimes, we will walk a path unknown. But, God guides and provides for our days. When He “leads us to it, He leads us through it.” He covers us in love and helps us remember how it feels to persevere. And, He readies us to do His will and receive what makes us stronger.
God will guide us, even when we cannot see what waits to be discovered. He will lead us through unfamiliar territory in our lives. And, He will remind us why we will never, ever walk alone.
Dear God, Thank you for Christmas and the HOPE which comes from YOU. Open our hearts, so we will make room for Jesus. Calm us with the breath of heaven and hold us in Your holiness, so we will find strength as we trust in YOU. Amen
