With any holiday season emotions are heightened and our awareness of our circumstances goes up. We get overly concerned about how Christmas is celebrated and end up going through the motions. If we are to be joy filled during Christmas why don’t we feel joyful? Happiness comes in the knowledge that Jesus brings us an assurance of God’s love, instead of what the world says happiness is. Paul gives us a great example of how to find joy. God has started something in us and it’s in that love we need to remain.
