Waiting Here For You: An Advent Journey of Hope

Louie Giglio is the pastor of Passion City Church in Atlanta, GA and the founder of Passion Conferences, a global movement uniting university students to live for the fame of Jesus.  With a desire to elevate God's glory above all else, Louie has also authored The Air I Breathe, i Am Not, But I Know I Am, and Indescribable, which was co-authored with Grammy Award winner Matt Redman.  Louie and his wife, Shelley, live in Atlanta, GA.

You can connect with Louie at as well as on Twitter.

Waiting Here for You helps us anticipate rather than dread the busy season of Advent and Christmas.
Life is full of waiting – we can’t escape it. We find ourselves in the middle of it every day – waiting on a prognosis to be given…a verdict to be reached…a promotion to be announced. And in these seasons of waiting that anxiety, desperation and hopelessness creep in.
Waiting Here For You takes us through the advent – the season of waiting. In it we see the story of the coming of Jesus. It teaches us that waiting is the means God often uses to carry his plans in our lives. And it brings us back to the truth that our waiting is never wasted when we are waiting on God.
Join pastor and author Louie Giglio and take hold of the chance to uncover the vast hope offered through the journey of Advent. Find peace and encouragement for your soul as anticipation leads toward celebration!
Waiting is not wasted when it is waiting with the Lord.
My Thoughts:
I was blessed by using Waiting Here for You as my devotional focus during this past Advent season.  The book is organized into daily readings beginning with November 26th and ending December 24th.  Each reading begins with Scripture and is followed by a short Reflection from Louie and ends with a Hymn for Meditation and Prayer guide.  Black and white Winter scenes are interspersed throughout the book.  Louie's reflections and Scripture passages focus on the theme of waiting and the constant, faithful nature of God.  While Waiting Here for You is written specifically as an Advent resource, I think it would be perfect as a devotional guide for the month of January to begin the New Year in anticipation of great things from God.  Get yours today!
*I received a complimentary copy of the book for the purpose of review from the publisher.
Happy Reading Ya'll,

It's the best to read on the Christmas day but it's also a good choice start a new year.
