How Much Value?

How much value would you place on having a happy and cheerful heart?  We should value it a great deal. When we’re happy, deep down joy filled to overflowing we need to treasure and share in the blessings of feeling that way. Christ promises us joyful abundance if we embrace His love and His joy. The worst face a Christ follower should ever wear is a grumpy, dill pickle, sour grape attitude that says “GET AWAY FROM ME”. To be sure we’re all going to have a rough patch to get through from time to time. It happens. A cheerful, Christ filled heart is one that, in spite of the circumstances, maintains a “positive” godliness. Negative godliness is the devil’s best tool for driving folks away. Our challenge is to obtain and then maintain a cheerful heart. Whatever is in our hearts, shows up on our faces and comes out of our mouths. The smile of a cheerful Christian is GOD’S Smile shining through. Solomon wrote this …

Proverbs 15:15 says in part … “But he that is of a merry heart has a continual feast.”

When we eat good spiritual food, our outlook is sunny and bright even though the dark clouds have surrounded us. And like the song says “Don’t worry, be happy!” to which every Christ-follower can add, “GOD is larger than anything I’m facing today! GOD’S Blessings to you. Mike
