Verse of the Day: Proverbs 17:22
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Feeling joy and being cheerful in ordinary things isn’t as hard as it seems. Granted, we are currently going through some of the most difficult times, but when we trust in God with all our heart we are able to keep our spirit from being crushed by the things going on in the world. To be cheerful, focus on the good things in your life and be grateful for what you have. God’s love and mercy give our hearts reason enough to be happy and knowing that our faith is built on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ allows us to be secure no matter what is happening around us. Remember, it’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy so let us give thanks to the Lord for in His presence is fullness of joy.
Lord, thank You for the peace I have in You. My happiness is not dependent on the things of this world but in Your goodness and mercy. No matter what is happening around me, there is always something to be thankful for. Amen
