Waiting for Advent - How Jesus Fulfills Every Longing of Our Hearts
Waiting for Advent is our brand new 2018 Advent study! The study traces the theme of waiting throughout Scripture. Through the study we will focus on waiting for the Messiah to come while also learning how God works in our own seasons of waiting.
Life is filled with seasons of waiting. Can you imagine being an ancient Israelite, being promised that a Savior would come and mend all of the brokenness in the world? Can you imagine waiting for a King who would heal the land and enact justice? He would be the answer for everything. That would be difficult to wait for. Even in our modern context, a lot of our lives are characterized by waiting. We wait for a job. Or children. Or peace. Or victory. Even now, believers are waiting for the second coming of the Messiah. We spend a lot of time waiting.
It is easy for us to want to speed through the process of waiting. We often want to bypass the awkward time of expectation and get to the end goal. But the season of Advent teaches us the value of waiting. It teaches us to slow down and enjoy the work that God is doing while He is working all things together. When we spend time in waiting, God grow us. He moves and strengthens us. He brings us into a better understanding of who He is. Waiting isn’t awkward or useless—waiting gives way to abundant life.
This study emphasizes waiting, encouraging readers to lean in when waiting ensues. We might still be waiting for that job, or for healing, or for freedom from sin—but God is at work in the waiting. This study draws eyes heavenward to the Christ who became earthbound in a fleshly body, experiencing life as we do but championing it in sinlessness. We look to Christ. We wait for Christ. The Christ, His work, and His wisdom is always worth the wait.
In the first part of the study we will trace the theme of waiting for the Messiah through the Old Testament as we see how the world was longing for a Messiah. In the second part we will take a closer look at the Christmas narrative and see how every longing of our hearts is fulfilled in Jesus.
This is our most beautiful and meaningful Advent study yet and we can not wait to hear how it encourages you to trust the Lord in your own seasons of waiting.
The study is 5 weeks long and is perfect for individuals and groups. The book is 8x10 and 136 pages long. It is filled with gorgeous photography and lettering. The cover features gold foil lettering.
The study is designed to run from 11/30-12/31 though you can use it on any dates.

I ordered these books for a friend and me to go through when the 2019 advent books sold out. They’re so great! I’ve gone through the Romans books, so I hoped that these books would be equally great, and they are! Very pretty, and solid study material to prepare our hearts for advent, as well.
I have loved this study so far with its deep, gospel-centered questions and beautiful words. I’ve never done an advent study before and so far I’m loving it! Also the pages are so beautiful!
The writing on the outside was slightly faded- but they work great. Just as described
I absolutely love this devotional! I cannot wait to dive in and prepare my heart for all the Lord has for me this season! 🎄🙌❤️
It really is slightly imperfect. Hardly. Like I don’t even notice it! The front cover is barely crooked, but when sitting at an angle on my bible or chair I don’t see it. This is a beautiful resource. The first study I have done with Daily grace. And even though it’s a year later...I’m doing the 2018 book in 2019, God is speaking! I like that the advent study isn’t dated or marked “2018” making it timeless. :)
