Over the next 10 days you will most likely here these words many many times:
O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant, come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, born the King of Angels….
This year I’m choosing to Focus on two words when I sing that song and I encourage you to do the same.
I want to focus on being joyful and to remember that the petty things on earth that rob us of our joy are nothing compared to the Joy we can find in Christ. When we focus on Him and wait patiently for Him, joy WILL find us.
And secondly, I want to focus on the word triumphant. I confess that this fall there have many days when I have wondered whether or not the enemy is getting ahead. But regardless of how much I wonder or how I feel, the truth is, he is not and he never will be. I can be triumphant! And as I approach the figurative manger to adore the King of Angels, I can do so with a spirit of triumph because the victory is mine.
So come, faithful ones.
The King of the Angels is waiting for you to adore Him.
