Advent (#3): Fixing our Eyes – December 11, 2011

“Advent (#3): Fixing our Eyes – December 11, 2011”
Text: Hebrews 11:1-2, 32-40; 12:1-3
It seems that the great stories in the Bible are the ones where God intervenes—where new life is brought forth out of barrenness… where the blind see… the deaf hear… the mute shout… and the lame leap for joy. But what happens when the miracle doesn’t come? What happens when the blind remain blind?  Or the deaf stay deaf… or the mute are forever unable to speak?  What happens when you pray and wait… and wait and pray… and God doesn’t seem to answer your prayer?
