(Advent Week 1: Hope) A Perfect Day

I asked some friends, “ What’s essential for a perfect day?” Everyone had an immediate answer. Coffee hit the top of the list. I agree.

Once I had their answer, I asked, “So, do you think a perfect day exists?”

I have the most positive coffee-drinking friends on earth. Each one of them looked at me as if, I should know the answer. “YES!”

I agree.

I’ve learned the perfect day depends on how life is perceived.  So. I’ve learned to look harder until I see what is “already,” anticipating more, the “not yet.”

 There’s a shift in perception, when the gift of the “already” and the hope of the “not yet” of God is seen.

It’s what I see in the Bible verse Philippians 1:6  which I often write on wedding, birthday, graduation, and even sympathy cards. It speaks of the gift of the “already” and the hope of the “not yet.”

I am confident that the Creator, who has begun such a great work among you, will not stop in mid-design but will keep perfecting you until the day Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King, returns to redeem the world” (The Voice).

I agree.  I’m confident God is at work, grateful for this perfect day, which holds the gift of the “already” and  the hope of the “not yet.”

Today . . . light the candle symbolizing hope . . . giving thanks for the perfect day.

  1. Kerrie, you have always played a part in my life when I’ve had lots of hope, & when it was fading fast… Always reminding me to keep going. Thank You for carrying forth The Word into my life!

  2. My favorite bumper sticker says “There are no bad days”. It all depends on how we decide to view our days. What hope to know God is never finished with us. He is helping us to find the good in every day. Great devotion!
