ADVENT MEDITATIONS – FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16By Steven Tomlinson
Psalms 40,54; Isaiah 10: 5-19; Matthew 11:2-15
Listen to the author read their meditation and prayer:
Or would you rather be surprised?
For only God’s subversion truly satisfies. Only God’s upending loosens the particular knots of our desires. God’s answer saves us from the questions that enslave us.
See! The world is ending. The least shall be greatest.
What you want is yours already.
God of Surprise, free us from the chains of expectation so we can embrace the gifts that in our brokenness we cannot imagine.
