Come, Lord Jesus

Today begins the season of Advent. We will mark the season together, waiting for our Lord to be born.

Keep awake for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. Matthew 24:42

“Come, Lord Jesus,” the Advent mantra, means that all of Christian history has to live out of a kind of deliberate emptiness, a kind of chosen non-fulfillment. perfect fullness is always to come, and we do not need to demand it now. This keeps the field of life wide open and especially open to grace and to a future created by God rather than ourselves. This is exactly what it means to be awake, as the Gospel urges us! Advent is, above all else, a call to full consciousness and a forewarning about the high price of consciousness.–Richard Rohr in Preparing for Christmas

What expectations, or perfectionism, do you need to let go of in order to be fully awake to God?

Are you looking for God's future?
