During Christmas holidays people have this joy everywhere. For you to know joy means a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. We hear this word often throughout Christmas holiday, it maybe in songs, poems and even in decorations.
The year should be focused around great pleasure and happiness, as people come together to remember the past year and hopefully feel excited about what is to come. It’s really a time for reflection, anticipation and comfort as well. We rest in the memories that have led us to this point.
One of the common phrases that includes this feeling is Joy to the world, which is, famous to Christmas songs. The popular hymn praises the coming of Jesus into the world in shouting, Joy to the world, the Lord is come.Joy to the world, the Savior reigns. This song celebrates the birth of Jesus, but it also reminds us that this is the time when joy was brought into the world.
We have a part to play in this song as well. The popular Christmas tune continues, let earth receive her King. This tells us that we are responsible for receiving this gift of Jesus and for allowing joy to enter into our lives. By letting every heart prepares him room, we are able to bring joy into our reality and create space for it every day. This is something we can learn to do throughout the year. Not just at Christmastime.
