Thank you for sticking around for all 25 days of Joy! Today, is the day we celebrate the ultimate gift of joy in Jesus coming to earth as fully human yet fully God in the form of a baby born in Bethlehem. He was born into humility and lived the life of one of us in order to give to us the gift of Joy and the hope of eternal life through his death and resurrection.
I hope this journey to joy over the past 25 days has brought more than just a smile to your face. I hope that your heart has been opened to receiving the only meaningful joy that lasts - The gift of believing in Jesus!
The Bible says that His name shall be called:
Prince of Peace
In a very famous verse, John 3:16, it also says that when we believe on this name, we shall be saved!
For God so LOVED the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life!
May your life be everlasting, never ending; and, may it be filled with so much joy that you cannot contain it, that it bubbles over in abundance to the point that you have no choice but to share it with everyone you come into contact with as well as others whom you may never even physically meet face to face!
Is joy something you can muster up all by yourself? I really don't think so. I really believe that true joy is only found when we are in the presence of God. The Bible says:
You will make known to me the path of life;
