Today’s reading from Isaiah describes the wonderful intention of God for us. It harkens back to the book of Genesis where we are reminded the original plan of God was one of holiness and justice. Longing for Jesus to come into our lives is a longing for original holiness and original justice.
God has a plan for you. How often do we hear these words? God has a plan for us. We know it. But do we really let the power, length and breadth of God’s plan sink in? God’s plan for us is eternal, infinite and magnificent. God’s plan takes us beyond who we are today. But do we really reflect on our relationship with God, and are we willing to go wherever God leads us? Each year the Church gives us the season of Advent to listen. Will you?
