Joy to the World!

I love the tradition of saving Joy to the World  for Christmas day. The hope is that Advent has been a season of preparing  Him room in our lives and we are now ready to receive Jesus as king – of the world and of our lives.

This is a song of celebration and rightfully so. God has intervened and through Jesus gives us triumph (not over having difficult times – we are promised we will have those) over hopelessness. The birth of Jesus is the “thrill of hope” and because of that, we can rejoice in our weariness.

Let’s celebrate with Whitney (video, above). The natural response to the revelation of how much God loves us is to sing with joy and continue to make room in our lives and hearts, so that He would be made king of both.

Lord,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Amen
