The Christmas season bring a holy expectation of His Presence. Just as Christ came two thousand years ago, we expect Him to respond to our songs of worship and praise for His Word says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”1
We join with heaven’s song,
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.2
As Mary carried the Son of God in her womb, her holy expectation was faith and uncertainty.
Today, we face uncertainty in our world, yet our hearts are filled with certainty that the great I Am is here with us in our hearts, and as we draw near, He draws near to us. We can take comfort in His Presence, and our holy expectation of He ‘who was and who is and who is to come’ remains intact.

Every Friday, I join an online Christian writing community, Five Minute Friday. We are given a one-word prompt and write – unscripted, unedited, pure free-write – for 5 minutes. The prompt this week is expectation.
I’m linking up with #FiveMinute Friday and #FaithonFire today.
