“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ― Howard Thurman
Ponder the Text: Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you. -Isaiah 12:6, NIV
Prompt for Thought: What brings you joy? Go do it now.
Prayer for the Journey: God as we celebrate the gift of your presence through the birth of Jesus, please do let us look past the joy of your gift, Immauel, God with us. Don’t let programming and the busyness of the season take away our joy. Help us to experience pure joy. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
