Season of Anticipation
Anticipation is a powerful emotion. It is hopeful expectation. Even in the midst of difficulty, when God seems absent, we can be hope-filled. We need seasons of anticipation in life to keep us emboldened to move forward. These seasons prepare us for the work of God in our lives. Advent is all about anticipation...the emotion of hopeful expectation even in the midst of great difficulty.
