Advent Begins A Time of Waiting

PREPARE HIM ROOM.  It's a time of waiting and learning to wait in silence and quiet expectation. Ironically, at a time where activity and materialism in the world  seems to rule supreme, Advent, mercifully, beckons us in the opposite direction.

Will you wait?

Isaiah 40:31 ESV
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

 Psalm 27:13-14 ESV
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!

 Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

James 5:7-8 ESV
Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

 Lamentations 3:25 ESV
The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
