What do you do when life gets a bit topsy turvey
or just filled with too much uncertainty
or plain old messiness?
Do you ever find yourself wondering …
how do we get through this? or
why are things so complicated?
I know I do, from time to time.
I am sometimes tempted to wait,
for the solution, the savior, the end of the messy situations.
This is advent after all, a season of waiting.
But expectant, not passive waiting.
It is a season of joy and hope, not gloom and doom.
How I wait, how I anticipate, how I participate and co-create makes a difference.
It paves the path, prepares the way,
for the in breaking of love,
for life-giving energy,
for the next steps in this journey.
We wait and we wonder, but we also live and risk and love.
Together. Broken and whole. Vulnerable and resilient.
God is there, with us, emmanuel, through it all.
