In this season of Advent, you might be questioning your worth and purpose. The approaching holidays may feel like impending doom rather than joyful anticipation. As those around you are counting down until our Savior’s birth is celebrated, you are internally doing all within you to slow down the upcoming hoopla that is sure to hit from every side.

God is with us

There is hope in a season of hopelessness. You have a purpose and a place in the story of life. We find this glimmer when we turn to God. I pray you will be blessed by this song from Casting Crowns – God is With Us.

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

I cannot pretend to know how you feel as Christmas is approaching. I pray that you know you are never alone. God is with us always. He asks us to join Him in His story. He has a place for each of us.

[Tweet “God is with us in our longing as He provides hope in our hopelessness. #Advent #story #grace”]

I pray God’s word in scripture and song will bless you. I also hope you will follow along as we look at God’s story and how it intersects with our own through the days of Advent.

With longing and hope we open our hearts in this season of Advent.
