Rejoice Gift- Advent 15
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,
even in the unknown.
