An Advent Tapestry–My Soul Waits

Psalm 130:6
My soul waits for the LORD more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.

As a child, it seemed like the wait for Christmas Day took forever.  December 25 was the focal point for everything.

Now in my middle age, the wait itself is the point, as we watch Zechariah, Elizabeth, Mary, Joseph, Anna, Simeon, even Herod wait.  In our community of believers, we wait together, encouraging each other through the hard times.  And there are plenty of hard times.

More significantly, there is someone else who we know is waiting. 

“I stand at the door and knock.”  Revelation 3:20

When are we ready to end His wait and open the door?
