Third Advent – Joy
December 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Sunday, December 11th is the third Sunday of Advent and is represented by the candle of JOY. Sometimes it is hard to be JOYful or feel JOYous, even at Christmas time. We all have hurts and/or heartache in our lives. But the good news is that we can find JOY in the little things. All we need to do is let go and let God show it to us. Like when you see a child squeal at the excitement of seeing Santa Claus in the mall. How about when you see a new puppy or kitten playing with their siblings?! The hug from a friend who knows that you are hurting, which came to you at just the right moment. You might not feel outwardly joyful, but your heart feels it. Paul tells the people of Thessalonica in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
