    Wonderful thoughts. Never thought of that emptiness. How many of us have experienced that emptiness? I have. But God comes. He really does. Come long expected Jesus. AMEN.
    Blessings,

      Amen indeed. I knew about the long silence, but it hadn’t clicked with me that God brought the people back from Babylon, spoke for a while after that (mostly “get your act together”) and then just stopped. But we can trust Him in the silence because He hasn’t changed when we don’t hear Him.

    Four-hundred years is a long time!! (For us that would be sometime in the 1600s). I love the expression “the fullness of time.” Even if we’re waiting long, the clock is ticking toward that fullness. And a Merry Christmas back to you!!

      Love “in the fullness of time.” Michael Card’s song, Maranatha, has the wonderful line “it’s not yet the hour, but the minutes are ticking away.” May we worship in the waiting.

    Janet,
    This one is timely for me. I haven’t yet waited that long so I need to put my trust in Him and His perfect time! Do have a blessed Christmas and a favorable New Year in Him.

    Love and blessings!
