Advent Day 3: Daily Devotional

The first Advent candle has melted slightly. Been put to use. It stands upright as it reaches toward heaven, yet remains rooted in its secure place. Between its certainty of position and its daring rise, it fulfills its purpose.

Hope grows out of a sense of purpose. Any human, at any age, may make a difference in the world. See something that needs to be changed or accomplished. Name it. Approach it. Address it. Find others who are also passionate about a similar cause. Build relationships so that more can happen by learning and working together.

Consider your passions and how they lead you to a calling in your life. If you remain uncertain about the ‘why’ in your life, this season offers a wonderful time to pray and listen, to invite awareness about your particular passions and purpose. Celebrate how passion and purpose manifests as the light of hope that burns within you. — Rev Gail

For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. —Jeremiah 29:11

They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for. – Tom Bodett

Life is never made unbearable by circumstances,
but only by lack of meaning and purpose. Viktor Frankl
