Joy to the World

Joy to the world,

the Lord is come

Let earth receive her King!

Let every heart prepare Him room

And Heaven and nature sing

And Heaven and nature sing

And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing!

“Happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path of sinners, or join a group of mockers! Instead, his delight is in the Lord's instruction, and he meditates on it day and night.” Psalms 1:1-2

This carol and the opening of the book of Psalms reminds me of the joy and happiness that God intends for us. When we radiate God's love and light, we allow ourselves to be a vessel through which to bring joy to the world. This has been a personal calling on my life: to make life better for others. I'm intentional about bringing happiness to all who I encounter, first centering myself in my own true happiness. Then my family, especially my son. And finally bringing light to a community of children and families in need. This level of happiness for other requires daily meditation and a deep rooted knowledge of the greatness of God. While the journey has not been easy, I've found such happiness in the Lord. And I'm honored to live a life full of purpose in helping others to find their joy.

Prayer: Father use me to radiate your greatness. Bring joy to the world through my life of service. Amen.
