This season is known for its JOY. The sparkle, the wonder, the innate happy feeling. Twinkle lights, packages, Christmas cookies, miracles. But I think we all know that the holidays aren’t full of joy 100% of the time. In fact, they’re really difficult for some. But we serve an incredible God! Nothing is too hard for Him.
We hear of Him moving mountains, creating the Heavens, flooding the land, raising the dead… but I can tell you that when I’m in a valley– a deep, deep valley– it feels like it would take a miracle to bring me out of it. But friends! He wants comfort & happiness for His children. He turns mourning into joy. He trades gladness for sorrow. There is no wall strong enough or high enough that He can’t knock down. Even that deep, deep sorrow or regret or mourning that we feel can & WILL be turned to joy. He will always bring us back again.
If you feel like this post is speaking to you this Christmas season, know that it’s temporary. He has joy for you; He really does. There is something in your life that He’s brought to you or a way He’s blessed you that radiates joy. He spares no expense & overlooks no detail in your life. The Lord is near & brings joy in spades. :) We are blessed to be His children!
