Be encouraged in this advent season, where we see that God is in the waiting, always working for us. What He desires is an obedient heart in the places we often feel just "shouldn't be this way". In that obedience and faithfulness, He is working His plan in us, sanctifying us. Just like the shepherds.. "watching over their flocks by night".. a lowly of low jobs, outcast on the side of a hill in the desert as hired help, on the graveyard shift.. yet faithful in keeping watch in the lowly duty they were given. Then the most important message was sent to them one dark night, long ago.. Christ has Come! Emmanuel, God is with us.
Wherever you are today, lift up your eyes.. your Savior has come and God is with you.
