Advent 2021: Hope by Ruth Fulwood


“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.”

-Psalm 39:7


10th Day of Advent

December 7, 2021


It has been more than 19 months now that we have been living through this COVID pandemic. People are still dying from this dreadful disease and more strains are being discovered in country after country. I must admit there were times that I questioned “where is God in all of this?”

As I enter this season of “Advent,” I am reminded of the hymn that says “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name. ON CHRIST THE SOLID ROCK, I STAND…” When this crisis ends, I am preparing to be ready to move into a ‘new’ order (a new way of doing things, especially in my usher ministry) and not return to the ‘old’ order. I am anxiously waiting for Advent and getting ready to learn a new way of doing business, Dear Lord!


We all must be prayerful, keep the faith and dwell in the hope that in God’s time this will be over.

Advent 2021

Join us in a time of reflection, expectation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2021.

Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.

Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
