LAUGH, SMILE, AND LIVE HAPPY!
(Have A Light-Hearted Approach To Life)
TO THE BIBLE Psalm 105:3 MSG
Honor his holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seek GOD. Live a happy life!
Until the Master comes, there’s a definite amount of time that anyone would stay here on earth. That does mean something; it means you’ll give account of your days on the earth. If you spent all your time here frowning, sad, angry, and despondent, it’ll be recorded for you; and you’d tell the Lord the reason you lived your life that way. No sad, unhappy, and bitter person can truly be successful. There’re people who,
every time you see them, always have frowns on their faces. Everybody knows them to be that way. You can hardly find them laughing or smiling. Don’t copy that life!
Make a decision to be a joyful, happy, loving and laughing person. Someone may question, “But must I laugh every day?” Yes, you should! The way you live your life has a lot to do with the results you get. You’re a spirit being, and your spirit rubs off on anything that concerns you. There’s a connection between you and your shoes, the clothes you wear, and everything about you! Your personality rubs off on anything that belongs to you. And so, when you allow sadness in your heart, and face, it has a negative impact on the things connected to you.
It’s one reason the Bible enjoins us to be happy always (1 Thessalonians 5:16). Think happy thoughts; centre your mind on things that make you happy. Stop focusing your mind on whatever makes you sad and unhappy. It’s a choice you must make. Your life depends more on you than you may realise. To be successful, you must let go of unhappiness and a sad look. Choose to be lighthearted. Lay off the burdens. Lay aside every weight. Choose to be happy always.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
A merry heart [a]does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit dries the bones.
7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
And with my song I will praise Him.
Dear Lord, thank you for your joy that’s in my heart. I’m strengthened, and energised for increased productivity and effectiveness by your Spirit today, who fills my heart with rejoicing, and my mouth with laughter. You’re my strength, my joy, and my song; I love you with all my heart. Hallelujah!
