A Cheerful Heart

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”

Proverbs 17:22.


When was the last time you had a good ‘belly laugh’? When was the last time you laughed so much that tears ran down your face? Can you remember when it was? If you are struggling to remember the last time you had a good laugh then you are not laughing enough!

Of course life is tough (at times). Yes, life is serious. Yes, we have struggles and problems. Yes, we have disappointments and regrets. However, we know that God is still on the throne. We know that in all things God is working for the good of those who love him. We know that when life finally finishes we will step into our reward.

Therefore, in view of what Christ has done and in view of the Promises and God’s Word…we have a legitimate right to laugh and be joyful.

A cheerful heart might not mean you are laughing all the time but it certainly means you treat yourself to a good laugh on a regular basis.

And science even agrees that a cheerful heart sprinkled with laughter is huge health benefits. Come on…smile!
Ps. David
