I want to give you a little gift to print off. Your Christmas print-able says “Joy to the World” and I want to tell you that…
I fixed my Joy!
For those who did not listen to my podcast this week, titled: Bethlehem, Everyone wants to go there, this is the “Joy” sign I bought at my local Dollar Store and talked about in my podcast.
I love this sign!
Soon after hanging it on my pantry door I found that the extra flourish on the “J” was broken off. With it broken the “J” was not as big, pronounced and outstanding as it once was. In my podcast, I stated that I was going to fix that “J”. And well… I did!
Have any of you had your JOY broken? I want to tell you the truth. Sometimes we have our Joy fixed by the Lord and all is right again. Other times we have our Joy fixed and we know in our hearts the Joy of the Lord and we know in our hearts and minds who is in control, we know where our eternal home is, we are so grateful for Jesus and his gift of salvation, but we still have to endure some situations in this world until the Lord’s timing is reached for them to change and/or be gone and this can take a long time of enduring on our part.
This is what is known as having Joy amidst the storms of life.
I am encouraging you, do not let your circumstances take or break your Joy.
If this is where you are this Christmas ladies, sing your heart out with this hymn: This well known, popular hymn is about Jesus’ return!
- Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
- Joy to the world! the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
- No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
- He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love.
May you have JOY this Christmas and may you have JOY this coming year amidst the calm and amidst the storms of life. Let your Joy be big, pronounced and outstanding once again!
I want to encourage you to print off my print-able, Joy to the World and be reminded, Jesus is coming back to set all things right! So, we can have JOY amidst our life.
