O Lord Thou shalt open my lips and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

That Feeling You Get When You Realize You're in a Mess You Can't Get Out Of.

We have many troubles afflicting us that are the result of our sins and the sins of those around us. During Advent, we ask God to come and restore what sin destroyed. In reply, He calls us to reject our sins and return to Him. We have hope that He will come and restore the paradise that our sins and passions destroyed.
"The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: * and he will save the humble of spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the just; * but out of them all will the Lord deliver them.
The Lord keepeth all their bones, * not one of them shall be broken.
The death of the wicked is very evil: * and they that hate the just shall be guilty." Ps 33:19-22
