The Promise Is Real: We’re This Close

The promises of the LORD I will sing forever;
through all generations my mouth shall proclaim your faithfulness.
For you have said, “My kindness is established forever”;
in heaven you have confirmed your faithfulness.
Psalm 89

 

We are this close to having our covenant with The Lord fulfilled. Literally, this close, thanks to the happy calendar coincidence. We will not have to wait an extra week for God’s promise to be realized.

How fortunate we are. The King is, literally, almost here.

But, we have been forced to be patient. We are forced to understand that we do not control. Our lives are in HIS hands. A child coming to us will lead the way.

The secular world, with its empty promises, and its temptations, is but a passing in the cold dark night. It is time to come in from the pain, the loneliness, the  vacant feeling. You and I are loved, with an everlasting love.

All we have to do is watch, listen, and pray.

The King is on His way, in His time, but the promise is about to be realized. Our Lord, the Baby Jesus, will be among us, and the beauty is, we know we have the ultimate gift. We are grateful. We are thankful. We are humbled.

Make your final preparations … to welcome the Child!
