Stop! Love is not a chemical reaction or an emotion or even the universe acting on our behalf, but a divine being who is love and acts in love, all the time! For us to love well, we must first embrace God’s love.
It doesn’t take a much to bring joy. No, it doesn’t take much, but what it does take is an intentional focus off of self.
If you believe that you can be joyful but not happy, you're onto something far greater than you realize. Joy is a person who can't be stolen!

In all the hubbub of Christmas, Jesus often gets missed - especially for Christians. Just let Jesus do what He does...love us and transform us!
The pattern of this world will shove you away from God! Don't get caught in the trap of "Santa karma"! If you spend time contemplating and seeking the way of life God desires for you, your life will be more productive and less uncertain.
