First Sunday of Advent already. I heard and read several different reflections on the day. I especially enjoyed watching a video by a priest that my family loves. What I came to understand is that Advent is a time of waiting for both the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ and for the day when He will return again. While we’re waiting, Jesus is waiting for us – right now – to open our hearts and lives to Him. No matter where our relationship is with Him, He always offers us more. More peace, knowledge, courage, patience, etc. But it is up to us to allow Him more space. We do this through prayer, fasting, and serving others. So, while we wait in anticipation for Jesus, we are not complacent. He is waiting for us to move toward Him so He can love us more.
I Found God today understanding that as we wait for Him, He is waiting for us.
