Posture of Anticipation

person standing in front of wrapped gifts.


In the Christmas season we anticipate the coming of the babe born in Bethlehem. This happened over 2,000 years ago, but God is an active God who still shows up in our world today, often in unexpected ways.


I’m still waiting for the star to appear,
to rise in the night sky
as hope lights up the town.
How will you show up?
How will you be born in my world, my Lord?


What does a spiritual posture of openness and anticipation look like to you? Do you believe in possibility, that God might show up in your life in unexpected ways?
