Advent: Tuesday, December 17 . . . Joy

268

Listen . . .

Think On This . . .

Busyness and pressure impact the way we live. Joy is often the last thing on our mind as we try to survive the day.   

But. 

So much of life is missed when we live without joy. 

Joy is a choice.

Why not choose joy to take precedence and be a priority for the rest of this Christmas season?

Consider the kind of joy which has nothing to do with the to-do list, schedule, or any circumstance. 

Consider the kind of joy experienced on the first Christmas. 

Consider the kind of joy which is a gift of God. 

Stop.  Take time to focus on Immanuel,  God-with-us. 

  • Pause.   
  • Breathe. 
  • Breathe deeply. 
  • Relax.
  • Intentionally release the tension from your body.
  • Be still.
  • Focus on the presence of God without thought of your needs or circumstances.   
  • Wait for the joy which comes from knowing God is with you and will not leave you.  
  • Let joy in.

Light Three Candles

Today . . .

light the candle symbolizing hope . . .  

light the candle symbolizing love . . .

and light the candle symbolizing joy. 

Focus on the joy of living with God. 

Merry Christmas!

Perspective . . . 

Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice!

    Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!

 Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!

    Let the trees of the forest sing for joy

Psalm 96:11-12 (NLT).
