These advent themes link together to allow us to live whole lives.
It’s hard to brim over with hopefulness if we are troubled and fearful.
So Paul’s prayer is that we might be filled up with peace, so that we can be filled with joy.
Make it a prayer today.
May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!
Romans 15:13 (The Message)
