Our world has faced a very difficult and challenging season these last two years because of Covid-19 and the resulting isolation, travel restrictions, severe illness, and loss of life.

You, however, have blessed us immensely during these hard times as members of our team have buried loved ones, battled cancer, faced isolation from our ill loved ones, and moved to live in new places. On top of that, you — our VerseoftheDay.com and Heartlight.org supporters, subscribers, and encouragers — have made these last two years our very best in our twenty-five-year history. Thank you! God bless you! We appreciate your partnership!

Our prayer for you this Christmas is that the presence of Jesus will be near to you and tangibly real to you. Thank you for being part of our worldwide family of believers and sharing your faith with others. Because we love the LORD, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to fulfill God's mission and share the love of Jesus with others.

We believe that the apostle Peter gives us the words that we need for this season of joy:

Though you have not seen [Christ Jesus in the flesh], you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls (1 Peter 1:8-9).

May we celebrate our Savior's coming with an inexpressible and glorious joy!
May this inexpressible and glorious joy given us in Jesus be yours in abundance this year for Christmas!
