Where Do You Place Your Hope This Advent?

Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse,
And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
But with righteousness He will judge the poor,
And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth;
And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins,
And faithfulness the belt about His waist.
– Isaiah 11:1-5

We’re halfway through this first week of Advent. This week as we do our best to focus on and hold to HOPE, the enemy seems ever more determined to rip any joy he can from our grasp.
To mar any light that begins to shine.

Take a deep breath with me mid-week, will you? I made this in hopes that you’ll join me in remembering what we’re the world was waiting for 2000 years ago. Where are you placing your Hope?

Lord Jesus, we await You now as they waited for You then. Thank You for being Hope in the flesh. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…

  2. So thankful for our Hope. Hope in the morning, afternoon, evening and every second we have breath. Where would we be without that beautiful new dawn that broke through the dark skies? Hope keeps us persevering. Thank You my Lord and Hope, without You, I am nothing.
