Comfort and Joy are two sensations or feelings that we can experience over the Christmas season.
But we don’t always feel this way. We have expectations (society & media have a massive impact on this!) Perhaps you feel alone or literally be alone at Christmas. You may experience disappointment. Perhaps, having to isolate, not see family, miss the train, or Christmas day isn’t quite how you had hoped, the list can go on. These experiences can bring us down and fill us with disappointment. We are human after all!
But! Remember you have been given the gift of Jesus! With Him comes the gift of comfort and joy.
That song ‘God rest ye merry gentlemen’ says:
God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan’s pow’r
When we were gone astray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
This song is telling us that we don’t have anything to dismay or worried about anything because we have been saved by Jesus dying on the cross for us.
This may be easier said than done!
But by keeping your eyes on Him and being filled with the Holy Spirit you will also be filled with the gift of comfort and joy that the Holy Spirit has for you.
Meditate on his word and the following verses to remind yourself of what scripture says about comfort and joy and to know them in your heart and spirit.
9 Verses for Meditation- Comfort
May you have a blessed Christmas
Feel useless, anxious, fed- up, frustrated, hopeless & helpless in your current circumstances
Lack confidence in yourself &/or in God
Are done trying or wanting to be in control of your life
Want to get back on track & realigned with God
If this sounds all to familiar and you’re:
Wanting to experience real, true joy & peace on a daily basis and really feel loved!
Ready to discover the life and journey that God (has already) planned for you- whether you believe it yet or not!

Yes. Jesus is always our comfort and joy. Our worldly celebrations are not meant to be our comfort and joy and often are not. Often worldly things bring us chaos, upheaval, hurt, and frustration.
Yes, such a true statement. Its so sad how commercialised Xmas has become, and vecause of this it’s bought everything uve just said. We need to be encouraging one another with the gospel. Thank u Jodi. Xx
