Just a few days ago, my daughter asked me what I would like for Christmas. At this point, it is a no brainer for me – “my calendar”. You know the one – the cheap one in which you rip off a page each day to reveal the next day. But it can’t be any calendar – no, it has to be one which has a Scripture for each day.
It has been years now that I have loved my calendars. There is something so special which occurs as I read the Scriptures on each page and come to the realization that He sees me and knows me intimately.
I’m on a life journey right now, not of my choosing. Actually, none of us chose it. But we’re journeying with Him and He is enough for each day.
How is it that He can take Advent readings, calendars and current situations and weave them together in such a way to me more of Him?
It’s absolutely humbling. It truly is!
On this journey, there were decisions to be made. Hard ones at that. And here is what I have learned in the last few days ….
“Listen! It’s the voice of someone shouting, “Clear the way through the wilderness for the Lord! Make a straight highway through the wasteland for our God!”
(Isaiah 40:3, NLT)
When in the wilderness, He makes a straight way – a highway – for us to travel.
And we come through.
Know why we come through? Have you ever wondered? I have and I discovered it is not just for my comfort or ease. Although it is a part of it, a very small part to be sure. To find the rest of the story, we must continue to read …
“Fill in the valley, and level the mountains and hills. Straighten the curves, and smooth out the rough places. THEN the glory of the of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together.” (verses 4-5, NLT)
He brings us through so that we will see His glory revealed.
We’ll see it together. And we will know -
He. Is. God.
