Louie Gilglio, the founder of the Passion Movement and Passion City Church, will be releasing his new book "Waiting Here For You: An Advent Journey of Hope" (Passion Publishing) in early September. This new book is a devotional book designed to be read during the Season of Advent leading up to Christmas.
The book will contain short daily readings where Gilglio has hand picked passages of Scripture, written meditations, words of encouragements, and prayers encompassing the mindset of "waiting" during Advent season. It will remind readers that waiting is not wasting when you're waiting on the Lord.
"The season of Advent is a celebration of hope, and 'Waiting Here for You' is a devotional guide filled with hope for everyone who is waiting: waiting on a solution, a diagnosis, a relationship, a breakthrough, a rescue," says Louie Giglio. "From the beginning, the Christmas story has been one of fulfilled longing. It reaffirms our faith and gives us reason to celebrate the faithfulness and goodness of God. Sadly, the frenzy we call the holiday season is a mad dash of tinsel and toys, driven more by consumerism than anything else, creating a perfect storm of anxiety that can easily cause us to miss God's voice. Christmas is about waiting and hoping in God. My hope is that this Advent devotion will encourage and fortify your faith so hope may bloom again."
