As we enter advent, we wait with joyful anticipation for Jesus’s coming. I love these verses from Is 35: 1-4 because it speaks very much to where the church is while we are waiting for our Lord... We wait with a bubbling of anticipation and joy, but also trust, knowing that our God will come with a vengeance, and that He WILL save us!
As we read the rest of the chapter (Is. 35: 5-10) it speaks of healing and redemption. Those who are blind will see, the lame will leap, and the mute will sing. This gives me hope for the life to come, that in heaven all will be made known. This encourages me to live not for the world but for Jesus- to be in the world but not of it. Jesus is our Holy Way and is where our eyes should keep focus as we finish our 1st week of advent and journey closer to His coming.

Advent is a season of the liturgical year observed as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming.
