Zep 3:14-18; Is 12:2-3, 4, 5-6; Phil 4:4-7; Lk 3:10-18
Leave your worries and concerns at the altar and God will provide. We are directed to rejoice in the Lord, to be happy and joyous in all we do. We are charged with understanding the difference in spontaneous happiness and essential joy. Things that are fleeting produce happiness that soon dissipates; yet joy evolves from a relationship with Jesus Christ that elicits a hope that is constant. The daily ups and downs come and go, yet the passion for life remains as long as we believe. With Christ at the center of our life all is amazing.
