Building One Another®

A Podcast About Encouragement

Choose Joy!


Building One Another

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11

Choose Joy!  

This is the time to choose joy!

There is much in our lives and in our day that distracts us from the Lord who loves us.

Furthermore, we live in a culture of complaint. It’s easy to criticize Christmas carols and church services and pastors and family members and just about everything and everyone.

Yet, Christmas is about God breaking into our self-centered world with literal good news of great joy.

So, while not denying that there are serious matters in our lives, This is the time to choose joy.

It’s the time to re-awaken your heart and soul to the presence of the Lord who loves you.

Remember, my friend, as you sing, “Joy to the World,” that the Lord actually IS come.

Let you and I and the whole earth receive our King!

Joy to you - Stan
