Bible Verses about Joy

joy (joi) noun the emotion of great delight


Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart
Prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

Today is one of the most joyous days - our Savior was born! I love that in this alphabet word study journey I've been on, "joy" happens to fall in this week. What a wonderful reminder about the beautiful season we have to celebrate Jesus' birth. I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas spent with loved ones and that the true reason for the season was forever in your hearts.

Enjoy some of my favorite Bible verses on JOY below.
