walking through the advent together: day 7
“There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.
So it was, that while he was serving as priest before God in the order of his division, according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. And the whole multitude of the people was praying outside at the hour of incense.” (Luke 1:5-10)
Let your soul breathe today, beloved. Because even in the darkest of times, when our hopes and dreams are but a whisper in the night anymore — our God hears. Our frozen dreams, our barren years and stump-like souls, they are all seen by the One who loves and provides; by the Maker of the sun and moon, the Maker of our earth. Walk in confidence, beloved, your sins laid out and your soul poured out like and drink offering, all of us out so that we can get all of Him in.
Let us pray, these words of praise echo the prayer of our hearts: Descend upon the world tonight, and heal our broken hearts.
