Living Advent Calendar — Day 1

Living Advent Calendar — Day 1

Nov. 29:

When God is going to do something wonderful, He or She always starts with a hardship; when God is going to do something amazing, She or He always starts with an impossibility. — Anne Lamott

Remembering something incredible that has happened to you… can you trace it back to that which you were sure could never be… with which it started?

(Before you doubt this, think for a minute: “amazing” & “incredible” essentially have to have “impossibility” as the prior experience upon with one’s surprise can occur and it is the assumption from which the words draw any meaning!)

Think of a hardship in your life… what wonderful thing can you imagine or hope for God to turn it into?

(Whether or not you can get all the way from your tight spot to your ‘miracle’ — even just in your heart and mind — today, pray that God helps you past your difficulty…)

Extra Credit: Read Psalm 24 twice today, with some significant time between your readings, and listen for what God might be saying to you…
