Advent is a season of searching. You have heard of the promise of “God with us,” and so you set out to find Him. He is coming, and has asked you to meet with Him. This in itself is a strange request (what would God have with you?), one which comes in differing forms. At times He whispers in dreams, at times He writes His invitation in the sky. You have heard it, and have become a stranger on an unknown path, led by a call and a longing.
Take a rest on your journey to read these passages and ponder this question:
In what ways have you heard the voice of God inviting you to set out and follow Him, or felt compelled to search after Him?
