Is 35:1-10, Ps 85, Lk 5:17-26

Advent a time for hope

This promise recorded by Isaiah was about the first coming of the Messiah, but is for this Advent too. Isaiah urges me: “Courage! Do not be afraid, look your God is coming…” The message is one of comfort and hope. Our Saviour will bring surprises like water gushing in the desert. I can have hope that the wasteland of my heart can rejoice and bloom to bring forth flowers like the jonquil. With Christ helping me I can always have hope for the future.
