"A Cheerful Heart is Good Medicine"


             Have you had your Joy Juice today?  If you want a healthy lifestyle, this is where to start!  With your daily recommended serving of JOY and HOPE!

            The American Heart Association reported a remarkable finding.  From years of research, they concluded that people who experienced high levels of despair and hopelessness had a 20 % greater occurrence of coronary artery disease (CAD) than did optimistic people. Do you think this is what is meant by the verse in Prov. 17:22 that says: A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

            God calls us to choose HOPE and FAITH. No, we can’t control most of the circumstances that come into our lives.  But we can choose our reaction to them!  We will experience problems and difficulties, but…as children of God, we can lay our burdens at the foot of the Cross!

How many times do we have to read or hear “The JOY of the LORD is our strength”(Nehemiah 8:10) until we truly believe it and apply that truth to our lives?  The faithful, Christian walk contributes to our spiritual health, for God gives us a legitimate basis for hope.  And with that hope…..comes JOY!  ABUNDANT JOY in Him!

            Have a double dose of Joy Juice.  It does the body good…as well as our heart and soul!
