A Cry of Desperation
•“Oh, that you would rend/tear open the heavens and come down.” (v.1)
•Where are you God?
•They heard about God… but now they needed Him!

•Season of Anticipation & Expectation
•Celebrate… He Came!
•Anticipate… He will Come Again!
•Confess… Our Sin and Need of God! (vv.6-7)

•“Yets” of life give us glimmers of Hope
•Christmas Hymn… “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”
•“Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” (8)

•Because God did Come Down to earth… Jesus Came!
•He entered our Hopeless situation
•He is our Father
•He is our Potter
•We are His

“Something Beautiful”
“Something beautiful, Something good.
All my confusion, He understood.
All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife,
But He made something beautiful out of my life.”
