Christmas is not always a happy time for everyone. But God wants us to find joy in the season and the celebration – not necessarily because of circumstances, but because of the Reason for the Season. Jesus came so that we could have God’s joy in all things. If you’re struggling with sadness, anxiety, or loneliness at this time of year, I pray these quotes and verses bring you strength and joy.
