Never before in my life has Advent seemed so important to me. In this season of waiting for the Light of the World the earth seems to be covered in darkness. The Church is under attack. Brothers and sisters are being murdered for their faith. God's people in Israel are under constant threat and very real danger.
If ever we needed the light, we surely need it now! Thankfully, this season is to remind us the Light is here! As I wander my way through Advent, I'm comforted. Comforted in knowing my Savior brought His light into my life. I'll never know the despair of complete darkness!
As this Thanksgiving weekend comes to an end, I give thanks for God gifting me with His Son.
