Choosing God in the middle of the storm is dancing on disappointment. Choosing to worship in the lowest of valleys is dancing on disappointment. When you say, “God I don’t know what the heck You're doing and I am struggling to trust you, I am fighting to believe that You are infinite goodness in this fire, but with the little ounce of faith I have, I’m going to place it in You.” that is dancing on disappointment
“The kind of spiritual life and disciplines needed to sustain the Christian life are quiet, repetitive, and ordinary. I often want to skip the boring, daily stuff to get to the thrill of an edgy faith. But it’s in the dailiness of the Christian faith—the making the bed, the doing the dishes, the praying for our enemies, the reading the Bible, the quiet, the small—that God’s transformation takes root and grows.”
I really just want to steward this advent season well and slow down. I think Jesus has become too familiar to me and the reason for him has become almost meaningless for me. It sucks to write this but it is the honest truth. So I just want to use this time to draw near to The One, to The Light of our world, of my world. To really feel and acknowledge what His coming brings, not only to my life but all of us- joy, peace, hope and love.
