Advent 2019 - Part 3
The Wonder of the Season
When is the last time you experienced a sense of wonder in your faith? I know for me it is easy to have wonder buried under responsibility, drudgery, and the weariness of the mundane. However, when I consider the times I felt closest to God it is usually not in the hype but rather in the quiet of the normal.
The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
— 1 Kings 19:11-13
