The Comfort and Joy

This Christmas season I found myself really attaching to the idea of Christ's birth and the message of healing and comfort His birth brings to us. Perhaps it was the pain of the tragedies in recent weeks involving innocent children or the uncertainties in politics these days with fiscal cliffs and healthcare or just the stress of daily life but I feel the world is in need of comfort. I absolutely fell in love with this song and its messages. I will probably play it all year. I hope the words resonate with your heart. And you feel the truth in them.

Jesus is Alive by Josh Wilson

Wish that I was there, 
On that silent night, 
When your tiny heart started beating for mine, 

I wish I could have seen, 
The star in David's town, 
When you turned a stable into Holy ground.
I sing along, the angels song.

Noel, Noel, Jesus is alive.
Emanuel, hope is here tonight.
So go, and tell, the world that death has died.
'Cause Jesus is alive. Yea Jesus is alive.

The God who made us all, 
With these two little hands, 
Is bringing us his kingdom quiet as a lamb.
Oh such Amazing Grace! 

A divine conspiracy.
This Savior in a manger changes everything.
That's why we sing.
Sin you have no sting.
Hell you have no power. (Jesus is alive)
Curse you are no more.
This is your final hour. (Jesus is alive)
Because the son of God
Has not left us alone. (Jesus is alive)
He'll live and die and rise again, and then he'll bring us home. (Jesus is 
The old will pass away
And we will become new. (Jesus is alive)
This baby boy is making all sad things untrue.
