Advent Day 4

God is patient.

That's somewhat of a new thought. He is all powerful, all knowing, existing everywhere, creator of everything, and yet he is patient with His creation.

God is patient with me.

He is gentle and treats me with tenderness. I don't deserve it but I accept His kindness with extreme gratitude.

God allowed His son to come to earth as a baby boy.

It would've been easier to keep His son at home but God had a magnificent plan. And now we wait to celebrate that day so long ago when a baby was born.

Advent is the time we wait for the baby's birth.

Help me savor the anticipation dear Lord, waiting for the arrival of Jesus. Still my heart, quiet my surroundings and let me know in new ways that you are God.
