Latest from The Vigil Project focuses on trust in this season of waiting
Accompanying the video, to help you enter more deeply into the Advent season, Thomas wrote a reflection, sharing the story of when she was lost at Disney World when she was six. Frightened, she followed her dad’s instructions to wait in front of Cinderella’s Castle if anyone became separated from the group. Andrea writes:
I waited. I had to trust that my dad would come for me. And then, finally, out of the crowd emerged my dad. He came running towards me and I toward him. My dad found me. He came for me.
Like my dad came searching for me, his daughter Andrea, Christ comes to seek and save you. Insert your name. It’s personal; it’s individual, and it’s real. He knows your anxieties. He knows what distracts you. He knows what is keeping you from trusting him. He knows it all. And He comes for you.
In the season of waiting, of feeling lost, let us choose trust. Trust that we have God who knows us and sees us. Trust that we have a God who comes to save his children; we, who are in desperate need of a Savior.
