The very thought of Christmas may fill your heart with high expectations. Or, afraid of disappointment, you may not even acknowledge the secret hopes of your soul. Some hopes were meant to be fulfilled at the manger, by the advent of salvation on this earth. Other hopes await His second arrival, and the advent of our glorious perfection.
Take a rest on your journey to read these passages and ponder this question:
Psalm 39:7; 130:5-8
What hopes and longings do you carry with you on your journey in this season?
