Advent Devotional: Dec. 8, 2020

by Waketa Marshall

Matthew 18:10:
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.”

My granddaughter Chrishana is my hope.  When I was younger I had no plans for any children.  But God said, “Haha,” and gave me two. 

In hindsight I would have been a crazy woman without children.  Chrishana propels my dreams and hopes.  She is the opposite of me in some ways but she has always drawn on me to guide her.  Even when she was a little baby people noticed how she preferred me.

People want to talk badly about teens, but if you really pay attention and watch and listen, they are an awesome group.  They have been on fire since the womb.  We’ve got to protect them and support them. 

I have no choice but to hope.

Thank you, God. Whatever I need I know you have already done it for me.  Help me to get out there and look for it.  Thank you, God.
