A Happy Heart

Beth Jones

"A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones." Proverbs 17:22, AMPC

Many years ago, God told us about the power of a happy heart and a cheerful mind through the writer of Proverbs. So, if you need a little pick-me-up this morning, this is it! C’mon, get happy! 

When we choose gladness, joy, laughter and rejoicing – it works like medicine and healing in our lives. When we laugh, our eyes light up, we feel happy and stress seems to roll off us like water off a duck's back. Scientifically, laughter benefits our physical bodies because it elevates our serotonin and endorphin levels. God knows how good a happy heart is for our enjoyment and health. There’s something about using our faith and choosing to have a good laugh or a giggle. There's nothing like a "stop it hurts" belly-laugh! Life is a lot different when you look at the hysterical and hilarious nuances in daily life, and God has given us plenty of fodder to fuel laughter! 

On the other hand, when we are broken or afflicted in our spirit – we end up feeling like our strength is sapped, being bone-tired and hurting all over. It's no fun at all! Don't allow yourself to stay down or broken, instead ask the Lord to fill you with His joy!

“If you are cheerful, you feel good; if you are sad, you hurt all over.” Proverbs 17:22, CEV

Today, if you need a jolt of "glad" – take time to look for the funny in your life. Look for the outrageous and laugh. Pay attention to ways God might want you to lighten up and choose to chuckle. Don't take yourself too seriously. Make a conscious decision to focus on the laughter-side-of-life and just see how happy and healthy you feel!

Say It: “Father, I am so thankful You have given me the secret to a happy, healthy life! I get to laugh. Lord, if I start to get too serious about things – help me to instead choose faith, laughter and joy! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
