Have you had your Joy Juice today? When we are intentional about sharing the joy of the Lord, we may become passionate!
The Lord has given me a passion to share His joy! What is your passion? I believe the more we talk about and focus on something, the more intentional we become about making it a goal. So, here I go again! Who couldn’t use more JOY in their life? Especially…..Joy from the Lord!
JOY is a healer! Proverbs 17:22 reminds us that “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Many times a happy heart leads to laughter! Doctors tell us that laughter has many benefits:
- It reduces stress and tension
- It strengthens our immune system
- It’s great exercise for our lungs
- It increases circulation
- It even reduces pain
God created us with a need for joy and laughter. Can you remember the last time you had a good belly laugh? If you can’t, you need some serious Joy therapy! Find some good friends who love to laugh and hang out with them for a while. Try to see the humor in your circumstances….Laugh at yourself! If all else fails, find some children to keep you company. Volunteer at school or church in the children’s department and I can assure you that there will be plenty of laughter.
Look for reasons to laugh! God delights when His children are joyful. And JOY is contagious!
