It doesn’t matter what it is; death (family friend pet), loss of a job or home; God has proven time and again that His never-ending Joy can and will fulfill us. I recently lost an amazing friend and it has been really hard for me to write for this Advent week of Joy because a thought hurt me. If we can find Joy in everything else through Christ, why is it so hard for us to find Joy for those who have gone to live with Him? Well, here is my answer, we are human and God gives and takes away for a purpose (even when we don’t like what happens). God gave us the Joy of never-ending Love, Peace and Hope through Christs Birth and that is what I know about Joy.
