How You Are Part of the Best Love Story

Sharing the words of sweet Ann Voskamp today as we celebrate each day of Advent. Grateful for her wisdom:

Now all is calm.

God comes…

God comes quiet…

This night a battle has been waged and won for you. Love had to come back for you. Love had to get to you. The Love that has been coming for you since the beginning—He slays dragons for you. This is the truest love story of history, and it’s His-Story, and it’s for you. All the other fairy-tale love stories only echo your yearning for his truest, realest one—this one that has begun its beginning before the beginning of time. This night, you on this visited planet, your rescue is here. You can breathe.

Your God extends now on straw.

He lays Himself down in your mire.

He unfolds Himself in the stench you want to hide, in that mess that is your impossible, in the mucked straw you don’t want anyone to know.

  1. Woke up this morning absolutely wonderstruck, as I sat up in bed, looked out the window, and saw a gentle, winter snow, as the song you had us look up for Advent (Winter Snow by Audrey Assad) just started ringing in my ears! Love all the little ways God surprises us and shows His love! :)

  2. I am so enjoying reading the Great Gift through advent, preparing my heart for Christmas. It has been such a gift!
