a blessing for when you’re tired of waiting for the world to get better

a blessing for when you’re tired of waiting for the world to get better.

blessed are we who wait with bated breath. who wait for something new to be born–for new hope or new joy or new life. 

blessed are we whose patience grows thinner by the day. we who are tired of the world as it is—in all of its heartache and loss and hopelessness. We who want more. More hope. More joy. More life.

blessed are we who sit here, to wait at the still point between desire and expectation. we who are making room for more of You, oh God, this advent.

surprise us with joy in the midst of the mundane, abundance in the midst of so much scarcity,  presence in the midst of the Christmas chaos. 

we have quieted our souls to listen, to wait for you, o God, for your Word-Made-Flesh is life to us.

Kate, you have no idea how much I needed this, this morning. I experienced the presence of the Lord as I read it. I feel this way…a person whose patience grows thinner by the day. I’m angry, shocked, confused by my own reactions, guilt-ridden for my lack of pure love…and I needed this blessing. I ended up feeling “seen…” not only by you but by God. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
