You surprise me, God.
I didn’t expect that at all.
You bring love and hope and new life into moments of despair.
You bring possibility and potential into places that seem desolate.
You bring light into the dark corners of our world, and of my soul.
Help me to see you in places, events, and people where I don’t expect you.
Help me to remember that you are alive and active in the world today.
Help me to know that you are alive and active in my life right now.
Bring bits of Advent into my busy, over-filled days.
Light my struggles with your love.
Show me that you are in the most surprising places.
