1 John 2:12-17; Psalm 96:7-10; Luke 2:36-40

Good things worth waiting for

Luke is not kidding when he says Anna’s days of girlhood were well over. She was 84! The extraordinary thing about being a follower of Christ is that it isn’t over till it’s over. You are never too old to be surprised by grace. Anna just happened to be wandering along, minding her own business, and in an instant, her deepest longing was satisfied. It was an unremarkable little family. But Anna’s long vigil gave her the capacity to see what others missed -- the Godhead hiding in plain sight. Surprise me Lord!
