"Waiting is essential to the spiritual life. But waiting as a disciple of Jesus is not an empty waiting. It is a waiting with a promise in our hearts that makes already present what we are waiting for. We wait during Advent for the birth of Jesus. We wait after Easter for the coming of the Spirit, and after the ascension of Jesus we wait for his coming again in glory. We are always waiting, but it is a waiting in the conviction that we have already seen God’s footsteps.

Waiting for God is an active, alert – yes, joyful – waiting. As we wait we remember him for whom we are waiting, and as we remember him we create a community ready to welcome him when he comes." -Henri Nouwen

Josh and I are setting aside this advent season to wait on the Lord in regards to our finances. Would you join us? We don't want to move forward in our own strength. We want everything we do to be infused with the Spirit. Would you ask Jesus to meet us as we wait for Him, and for Him to show us the next steps? And pray that we would not leave His presence until we have experienced Him and heard from Him. Can't wait to share with you how He answers our prayers and honors our waiting. Thank you for walking with us in this year of preparation!
