Advent - Days 3 and 4

Sharing the things that are jumping out at me as I wait on the birthday of a Savior this year.

Day 3 --  the longing in this song resonates with me.
Rejoice, Rejoice!  Emmanuel shall come to thee, Oh, Israel. 

Day 4 --  this scripture.  Praying today to have more and more of  that God-willed heart rather than  self-willed one.  

Ezekiel 36:24-28
 “‘For here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to take you out of these countries, gather you from all over, and bring you back to your own land. I’ll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed, not self-willed. I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands. You’ll once again live in the land I gave your ancestors. You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God!

Would love to hear about your season of waiting!  What is God speaking in your heart?
