Rejoice Gift -Advent 15

Rejoice Gift- Advent 15

"Rejoice always, 
pray without ceasing,
 give thanks in all circumstances; 
for this is the will of God
 in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Sometimes our days 
are set so that we just don't see 
anything worth rejoicing over, and
 can't imagine praying without stopping.
 On hard days it is certainly challenging
to give thanks.

We often get caught in time warp days,
unable to recall 
the good of the past, and
see the future with a cynical veil.

Oh, Lord, THIS Advent,
may my heart be focused 
on the redemption 
that this small baby brings,
 and that I am not caught 
in the boundaries of time.
let me look to the horizons of life,
 and REJOICE- 
even in the unknown.
