EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Don’t we all just love to be around happy, joy-filled laughing people?
I know when I’ve been in places of tremendous hurt and pain, my ears perk up to a cheerful voice and my body responds to a joyful personality.
Research shows that laughing will reduce your stress, increase your tolerance for pain, and even release infection-fighting antibodies. I know when giggles burst out of me or someone around me, my energy levels tend to rise versus when I feel like crawling into bed with weariness and a pity party for myself with a sad face.
Find a reason to glorify God today and smile big, laugh some. Doing so will make you happy. Think of a person you can call and just share an implanting bible verse that will uplift another. It can help you smile while you help cheer them up too!
“A cheerful heart is good medicine.” (Proverbs 17:22)
God can use your joy, laughter and happy heart to accomplish more than you could ever ask for or imagine. People will be drawn to the joy of the Lord you possess as your strength, despite the inner struggles you may be carrying. Glorifying God is a blessing in itself.
Keep the joy, joy, joy, joy down in your and a smile on your face.
