Wednesday, Second Week of Advent
The Lord will come and He will not delay.
He will illumine what is hidden in darkness
and reveal Himself to all the nations.
Almighty God, Who command us
to prepare the way for Christ the Lord,
grant in Your kindness, we pray,
that no infirmity may weary us
as we long for the comforting presence
of our heavenly physician.
Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Isaiah 40:25-31 (those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength)
Psalm 103: 1-4, 8, 10 “O bless the Lord, my soul”
+ Matthew 11:28-30 (Come to Me, and your souls will find rest)
I am afraid
that God’s not big enough
or good enough
to handle me.
loom so large
within my heart.
God answers me,
“Lift up your eyes
that I have made
and called by name.
“I call yours too.
in My sight
and very small
beside My might.
have I grown weak?
Who is the equal
to My power?
you will renew
your failing strength
and find your rest.”
Do I look up in the midst of my worries or do I turn inward?
What can I learn from Jesus’ meek and humble Heart?
