Good Morning……Sunday 10th December, 2016
Today as part of my private worship and prayers I will light the third candle as we approach another remembrance of the Birth of Jesus Christ.
I light the JOY candle. I will illuminate this one from the light of first the Hope candle and then the Peace candle. It is a truth reality that from Hope and Peace powerfully working in a human life that JOY comes. Not happiness but the inner JOY that nothing on this earth can take away. It is the mighty bubble that invades even the darkest place. When despair tries to take over the JOY that is fuelled by Hope and Peace, this hidden force combined…. changes circumstances. Together Hope, Peace and Joy will stand as a bulwark of Strength against darkness in any form or shape. …That’s why we wait in anticipation for the Divine LIGHT…….The ONE who is to come……….THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!
It is the greatest honour we can bring to life to live gladly and with joy in the certain knowledge that we have His Divine Love.
