Advent 2017: Waiting for God

December 24, 2017

Click here for a printable PDF of this post that includes a devotional journal page.


Waiting for God
is like waiting for your next heartbeat


Eager anticipation

Forming spiritual elation


A collective breath
Held throughout all creation


Weakness abounds in every earthly nation

All things can be done through Christ
and salvation


Just as a child craves to be born

This world desires
The veil to be torn


God give me not stillness

For apathy is death


Let me feel purpose

Until my last breath


Loneliness weighs
Like the stone of a mill

The struggle isn't just

Between you and your will


Sin is the world

Tempting the flesh

Soul, spirit and body

together must mesh


To stand fast against sin is a battle to heed

But we must have a Captain
A Savior to lead


The gift that is given

Shall be received
A love I can not

Begin to perceive


New time, new day, new page, new way

As much as the trees promise new leaves

The Father will heal
This world that grieves


Jesus was sent
to intercede
This certainly is
A Merry Christmas indeed



Connor Murphy has learned some very important lessons since he began apprenticing Jesus. Two that stand out: God wants to speak with us more than we want to speak with him, and God doesn't promise that faith will make all things easy, but possible.
