Advent Reflection: Be Glad!

Here is a brief reflection from Edwina Gateley. It was posted on Journey with Jesus.

Be Glad!

“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel
(which means 'God is with us'). Isaiah 7:14

God is soaked
in our world.
God's Spirit
lives and breathes
in and through
all that is.

We are lost
only when we
do not understand
that God
is already with
and in
each one of us.

Our task is recognition
of God's initiative
to be at home in us—
acceptance
of God-With-Us.

Then we cannot but
be glad.
