The grandkids came by last night with their parents. We had a surprise for them and we were so glad they came. They drove up and came running into the house! So cool! I love it! Awesome! Those were the words we heard as they saw the light show playing on the house. Danny had gotten one of those laser lights and we just knew the grands would love it when they saw it. We weren’t disappointed. Kids will always get excited and hold nothing back!
Oh beloved, it’s the beginning of the season of joy. God wants you to know whatever the season, you can have that joy! But especially now, Christmas is for kids! And you can be a kid about it all. From the wonder of the Birth of Christ to the pleasure of giving some gift to another, it’s all wonderful! Sure, God knows everything in your life isn’t sheer perfection. He understands that there may be sorrowful things going on in your life. But He’s pointing out that Jesus is the Reason for Joy! This season is worth celebrating! This life God gave you with worth being joyful about. This year the winds have shifted and even now God is creatively making changes that you are going to be blessed with. Even though it’s the last month of the year it’s not the last moment of your hopes. Hope, faith, love and joy know no calendar year! Children know how to be enthralled with the best of life and so too you are a child of the Most High God! Enjoy your life! Enjoy the season! This is the power of the Lord to live fully engulfed in His joy and fully alive in His Spirit! It gives the enemy a black eye and gives others a reason to ask you about the hope that is within you! Despair has no place in your heart. Discouragement can’t hang out anymore. Disappointment is just a stepping stone to His Appointment. You are His child and your life is hidden in the blessings and glory of Christ!
God loves you and He’s for you! Go ahead and enjoy this life! Go ahead and recapture the wonder of a child as you live completely loved and full of joy walking in Christ this season and all of your life!
