“Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18)I guess you could say that at the beginning of Advent, the Holy Spirit called me on the carpet. Though good went to worse, we know how it ends. We know how it is still being revealed. When we’re tempted by chocolate, coveting, and we reach for that luscious bite. When we wander down treacherous, gravelly paths, unsure of our steps. We grope in the dark, sometimes, looking for the Star. And we follow. We seek, like the Wise Men. And we see ... God’s Glory. God’s Victory. God’s Love. Knowing that it isn’t even half up to us. Everything we have, our joy, our suffering, and our mundane, is through God’s grace.
