I wait for the LORD; I wait

Over the past few years, I’ve begun reading books and devotionals on the theme of advent during the holidays. This devotional by she reads truth did not disappoint. I love the way Old Testament prophecies and New Testament passages about Christ are woven into the Christmas story so beautifully in this devotional. I also appreciated that passages I’ve never given much thought to, such as the lineage of Christ, have been highlighted and expounded upon, bringing new meaning to the text for me. ...more

“A Thrill of Hope, the weary world rejoices”.


O Holy Night – one of my favourite Christmas hymns. And I’ve sure been feeling weary these last few months. This for me was the perfect reading plan for Advent – getting ready to celebrate Christmas in the best way possible – by reading the Bible.

I love how, as always, the focus of this book was the Bible passages for each daily reading. But interspersed with those passages were delightful little extras – sheet music for Christmas songs, gorgeous

I loved the path of scripture throughout the month that continuously focused on Advent as more than just a remembrance of a baby in a manger at Christmas, instead pointing to Christ and redemption. The photos were lovely, and I tried my hand at a few of the projects and recipes that were certainly an asset to the Christmas season.

Umm ... A very pretty book, but it was only scripture passages. No commentary or interpretation. Occasionally a quote, but not many. A few “Christmas crafts,” but that’s not really what I’m looking for in a devotional. I have friends that use She Reads Truth daily, and apparently the app has commentary on the scripture passages. Otherwise, why not just read the Bible.

This advent reading is my favourite so far! It's been so sweet to start from Genesis and see how the God was setting the world up to meet Jesus in Matthew. So many promises, so many hints and alusions. It's been great to see how the whole Bible is really about Jesus and his purpose he came on earth with: to die in our place, to take the punishment for sin upon himself and give us hope.

Enjoyed this a lot. It was a very peaceful and relaxing read that followed the traditional Jesse family tree study of Advent.

“Through the angel’s pronouncement of Zechariah’s muteness, God showed His mighty power at work in both him and Elizabeth. God offered him this gift of awe to ponder within. Our doubt cannot stop God from being good to us and will not thwart His perfect plans. That is the kind of God He is.” 0 likes
“This season, there may be days when we are like Elizabeth in our awareness of God’s favor. Other times we may doubt as Zechariah did, too overwhelmed by our circumstances to believe God’s promises. Nonetheless, our gracious God ultimately delivered hoy to them both, and offers the same gift to us now: Jesus Christ, our Savior. In our silence and waiting, God is birthing eternal joy in us. That is the kind of God He is.” 0 likes
