Sunday marked the beginning of the Advent season, where we prepare our hearts for Christmas and "wait" expectantly for the Messiah. This week, our focus is on Hope. Where is your hope found? What are you hoping for? We invite you to take some time to reflect on this scripture, and to pray this prayer as you go about your week.
“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
God’s mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in the Lord.”
Lamentations 3: 21-24
Gracious God, as the Advent season begins, we cry out to you. We come to you looking for hope. When everything else we rely on fails us, our only hope is in you. When we do not understand what has happened, we hope in you. We can hope for better days because we trust you. We know you and we know you are here with us no matter what we are facing. Some of us see only darkness this time of year. Some of us find life overwhelming. Some of us are filled with Advent joy. Wherever we find ourselves today, Loving God, remind us that our hope is in you. Be with us on this journey. Amen.
