The greatest surprise the world has ever received is the gift of God’s son. This is why the Christmas story is full of awe, fear, wonder, joy, and many other raw and beautiful emotions. The season of advent is all about tapping in to the waiting and longing for this gift. Without the waiting, it is hard to understand the coming of the Messiah. In a culture that doesn’t like to wait for much of anything, advent is needed more than ever. The surprise of Christmas is that God meets us in these places of longing and hopelessness that we would otherwise want to ignore. The places where a savior is needed. Thankfully, a savior has been born! As we sit a little longer in the tension of our own brokenness and longings, we are praying for God to surprise us once again.
