Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you Lord for the joy you bring to our lives through family, friends, and holiday traditions. The Christmas season is upon us. It will be busy. Remind us to focus on You, not things because our joy is found only in You. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, remind us that we have countless reasons to be joyful.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
