“Tis the season to be jolly” is the popular saying that we all tend to say at this time of year! What does it mean to be jolly, and why?
As believers, we know that (Romans 15:13) says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” It is Him who makes us full of joy and His joy remains in us.
We all know the famous song, “Joy to the World” right? Because of Jesus, joy was sent for us to ‘repeat the sounding joy.’ There will always be times when it seems like “joy” isn’t coming around the mountain, but always remember, that anyone who has ever climbed a mountain didn’t fall there so even if you have to crawl or take baby steps, keep climbing!
So, whether it be for the holiday season in the Winter, the blooming season in the Spring or the fun in the sun season in the Summer, make sure you are IN the spirit of Joy. The world did not give it to you, and it’s because of the Lord, that it can’t be taken away! Joy belongs to the WORLD!
Have a Happy Holiday season!
-Minister Jemina McCarter Ballard
