What do You Need Him to Bring?
He is coming. Advent is here, and Jesus is coming. I’m expectantly waiting because I desperately need Him this year. I need His peace, and that is always what He brings.

The God who comes in His loving kindness to bring us what we really need…Himself. Bless Him with your expectant belief.
