Advent Devotion – Day 7

Dear Summerfielders,

A shining star I would like to hold up to you is my husband, Matt Templeton. He has positively shaped my faith more than anyone else in my life. He has helped me grow. He supports me and encourages me in my ministry, parenting, and everything else that is important to me. One of his favorite Bible verses is Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you.” Matt is everything I had ever prayed for or needed. Because of God answering my prayers, I now have a life that is completely fulfilling in every way. I remind you, ask. When there is a hole in your heart, a need in your life, it may take years for you to see that prayer answered, but God is working on it. You may not be ready yet, the world may not be ready yet, the other people who are involved may not be ready yet. But God wants to give you your hearts desire. Ask, then wait. God has shining stars for all of us.

Peace,

Pastor Jennifer
