Joy in preparing

Joy to the world, the Lord is come...
let earth receive her King
Let every heart, prepare Him room...

In the past few days have you found unhurried space to prepare room in your heart for Him?

Or has it seemed that you've had to send God off to the stable because of busyness, distractions, and being overwhelmed with all the Christmas preparations?

Is there a connection between preparing room and bearing joy? If so, could we conversely posit that lack of joy is directly related to lack of preparing room in your heart for the One who is the Source, Means and End of Joy?

I'm just wondering...

What things in the past have helped you prepare room in your heart for God? Take a moment of silence now and ask God, "Lord, in what ways might I prepare room for you today?"
