Glad Tidings of great JOY

december

“Joy to the world! The Lord is come.
Let earth receive her King
Let EVERY heart
Prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing”

The words and lyrics of the old Christmas carol ‘Joy to the World’ were written in 1719 by Isaac Watts. I am challenged to choose JOY… WE are challenged to choose JOY despite any situation because we have a King who loves us sacrificially and cares about every detail.  May we SING and notice the song all around us in the beauty of the earth and the  ancient WORD that holds true and strong:

Nehemiah 8:10b “For the joy of the Lord is your strength”

Psalm 28:7 “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.”
