Advent and the Long Wait

From the Lessons for Advent 1:

God works for those who wait for him. (Isaiah 64:4)

O LORD God of hosts, how long…? (Psalm 80:4)

…you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ. (I Corinthians 1:7)

…be on the watch… keep awake… (Mark 13:34-35)

"I would have despised myself if I hadn't continued - it was as simple as that - I just had to go on." Sir Edmund Hillary, account of reaching the South Pole

"I knew some people would say, 'Gee, it's wonderful what you're doing,' and others would say, 'I hope you die of cancer.' There had to be someone who would persevere through all that, and God just said, 'I'm picking you.'" George Tulloch, Titanic wreck researcher
