You can have joy because God has a plan for you.
In week two, we head to Luke 1:26-56 and discover more about when the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to announce that she would be Jesus’ mother. This must have come as quite a surprise. After all, Mary wasn’t married yet, and she had a different plan for her life. Gabriel reminded her that nothing is impossible with God. She could have been overwhelmed by this startling news, but she chose to respond with a song of joy.
You can have joy because God has a plan for you. As we look over the past year, most of us could say that our plans changed a bit. Maybe we missed a vacation. Maybe we had to work from home. Maybe we even got sick. When our plans are thrown up in the air, we can still find joy. Nothing takes God by surprise. We can trust that God has an ultimate plan for our lives. We pray that your child would discover the joy that comes from believing in Jesus and God’s plan for us.
