“A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.” Proverbs 15:13 NKJV
The best way to physically dress up for the day, is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. “A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.” Prov 17:22 NKJV.
“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.” Prov 12:25 NKJV Burying your head in sorrow or self-pity will not solve your problems. It can only add health challenges to the existing issues. Cast your cares on God and put on a smile.
“They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.” Psa. 34:5 NKJV
Father, I thank you for giving me reasons to rejoice. For the joy of the Lord is my strength.
