While Advent is a season of hope and expectation, it is also a time of patience as we anticipate the realization of our hopes in the birth of Jesus. We are called to wait for God to come in his own way in his own time, admitting our weaknesses and need for Him. It takes patience to be watchful. It takes patience to be hopeful. It takes patience to abide in God’s time in a hurried world.
“But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” ~ Romans 8:25
