Verse Of The Day: Merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones. Proverbs 17:22

Thought Of The Day : Joy heals the heart, but bitterness breaks and torments it.

LISTEN: Joy is God’s will for everyone; and you’re helping yourself when you maintain a joyful heart despite the heat and pressures of life. Joy is like medicine; it is the cure for sorrow. Our verse of the day says,

“Merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.”

Proverbs 17:22

However, you’ll always be heavy in heart if you’re not determined to lighten it by faith. As a matter of fact, your happiness is your responsibility. No doubt, the troubles of life are numerous; but we should learn to take life easy. Let’s not keep worrying ourselves and weigh down ourselves and be denied the chance to be happy, healthy and lively. Having a joyful heart plays a vital role in our entire well-being. But when we allow heaviness to dominate our hearts, the sweetness of life will surely evaporates. My dear, no matter what you face, you should encourage yourself and be happy. Help yourself by staying joyful in every situation; for no help can be enough which is not supported by help from within you. So, take it easy on yourself. I may not know the weight of your pain and sorrow right now, but God knows entirely about your problems. So, don’t be hard on yourself, rather cast your burden on God for He really cares about you (1 Peter 5:7). Jesus Christ said to His audience,

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

My dear, why are you struggling under your burdens alone? Won’t you come to Jesus Christ by faith today and quit worrying about your problems? Beloved, God hasn’t given up on you. Therefore, be happy always and remember that, a happy heart makes a happy life. Henceforth, always remember that, your happiness is your responsibility. Be wise!

1. Don’t kill yourself, for your case is not the worst, rather trust in God.
2. Never give up on life, rather remember that God won’t give up on you.
