Are you ready for what’s to come? For Who’s to come? Here’s a poem–a prayer– for you:
Jesus, I am ready.
I am ready to meet you daily…
reflect on your birth,
and notice how your story impacts mine.
I am ready to be silent…
and let myself adore you.
I am ready to wonder…
How would you like to be celebrated?
What gifts shall we give?
I am ready to let go…
of things on my list that aren’t on yours.
I am ready to gather with others…
to sing, worship, and celebrate.
I am ready to welcome and receive…
all of who you are
and all of who I am.
And that means…
I am ready to do all these things
the only way I can—
imperfectly and inconsistently.
Come thou long-expected Jesus.
Don’t wait until I’m ready.
