The Joy of Christmas

Christmas tree - 2

The Christmas story doesn’t end with His birth. It goes all the way to the cross, the empty tomb and, eventually, His triumphant return.

Take time this week to thank God for the gift of His Son, Jesus. Despite anything else that’s going on, that’s the core of Christmas. Whether we’re burdened by grief, anxiety, hurt or pain, He’s Lord of all. Whether we feel blessed or happy, He reigns supreme. He came into the world as a baby, He left the world as our Savior and He will come again as a conqueror. All this because He loves us so much.

That changes everything. And, that message can infuse your writing.

That’s the joy of Christmas. It’s a joy you can share.
