How Long?

Earlier and earlier each year we see the Christmas decorations in stores and Christmas ads everywhere. Christmas music dominates the radio stations, with the promise that it's the "hap, happiest time of the year." But not for everyone.

As we begin this Advent season, we're reminded of the struggles we face as human beings - struggles that humans have faced from the beginning. We are reminded of our limited understanding of how God works in our lives, and how often WE are the obstacle, not God. Our losses and challenges can feel especially painful, as we wonder, "How Long?" How Long must the pain go on? How long before God saves us from our suffering? How long before we understand?

Now is the time to listen for God, and to open our hearts to Him. Now is the time to make room for the One who knows us better than we know ourselves, the one who has a plan and a purpose for our lives - even if we can't see it, and don't understand.
