Guess Who’s Coming?

“The King is coming, the King is coming
Praise God, He’s coming for me”
— The Gaithers

(We’re singing this song every Sunday through Advent in the white-steepled country church where we worship. Because He is. He’s coming for me … and for you.)

Linking up with Deidra …

    We worship at a white-steepled country church too. Something special about them…

    I think I will remove the baby Jesus from my cradle. I like the empty one. It made me think twice and again! Can’t wait to sing that old George Beverly Shea song. Wow!! Can hear it now in my head.

    You brought back such good memories with that song! Remember singing it as a little girl along with the Gaither record my mom had. Also love the manager picture. Jesus dosen’t appear until Christmas morning in our home. Thanks for posting

    My Momma used to sing that with our neighbor from across the street as “special.” Never thought about singing it at Christmas—but I love the idea.

    Amen. “The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”

    My parents used to watch The Gaithers on Sunday mornings as we all got ready for church. What great memories! And, yes! It gives me goosebumps to think that He is coming for me!

    I’m going to remove Jesus from nativity set.

    Love this simple short post. One of my favorite songs.

    I have several Gaither Christmas songs on my playlist. Love the harmony. That’s a point isn’t it? We need to live in harmony as well as unity.

    I am so not a photographer, but that doesn’t stop me from peeking around all of the work at Deidra’s.

    Pssst. Here’s a secret. Your shot and words happen to be my fave, fave, favorite.

  9. Linda

    Oh the absolute joy of it Jennifer. He’s knows our names and He’s coming – for us!

  10. Jeanne Damoff

    Yes, He is coming! Oh come let us adore Him. xo

  11. Shelly Miller

    Oh, I love this picture and the way I can see you all singing that song in your church with expectancy.

  12. Patricia (Pollywog Creek)

    I LOVE the lyrics with that photo. Powerful image, really! And how wonderful that y’all are singing that every Sunday. (I’m old enough that I’ve been to Gaither concerts – but don’t tell anyone. =) )

    …the 2nd coming..such an interesting subject to ponder and explore..for instance,the first christians were given the impression that Christ would return most assuredly within their lifetime..thats why in many cases they sold their homes and possessions and practiced communal socialism..they were anticipating Jesus’s immenient return per the Apostles fervent admonitions..they waited and waited..we can only try to imagine what that first generations(of christians)personal thoughts were when it did’nt happen..then the next generation and the next….interestingly there are even some christians among us who believe that Christ actually DID return as scheduled/promised..but that He was simply not recognized as such…if you take the time to research our popular doctrine of the ‘rapture’ you will find that it actually did not even exist within the teachings of the early church fathers and only originated within christianity at the turn of the 19th century when a Brethren preacher named John Darby began teaching it… religion the examination of what we believe and why is fascinating..

    Oh, yes He is! And now I’m singing it too!

    Hey, sweet friend, how you been? I hear you’re going to Haiti :)…I want to hear more :).

  15. Susan DiMickele

    Yep, I’m singing it too. I am finally in that Christmas spirit — it was the singing today, no doubt. Christmas concert at church and lots of praise. This is a great way to end my day!

  16. emily wierenga

    oh jennifer. your heart shines for Christ. i love you sister. and the words you wrote me on facebook? about God never rejecting? i’ve been treasuring those words all week. they give me hope. love you.

  17. Sandra Heska King

    We saw the Gaithers in person once. Love them. Love this song. Love this photo and the waiting manger. Love you.

  18. Lori@myevidentfaith

    Love everything in miniature, and your photo and sentiment looks like a Christmas card!
