True Joy = A Cheerful Heart

                 Have you had your Joy Juice today?  True joy leads to a cheerful heart!  

                We are all familiar with the verse in Proverbs 17:22 that tells us:  A cheerful
 heart is good medicine”.  And truly, we’d all be a lot healthier if we would take this life-changing medication! The Bible teaches about ‘a cheerful heart’ repeatedly.

    Coach Pat Street points out:
·         A cheerful heart is a heart at peace. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we have sweet peace in Him. 
·         A cheerful heart is a heart of praise. “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs” - Psalm 100:1-2
·         A cheerful heart is a heart of prayer. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6
·         A cheerful heart is a heart of obedience. Jesus says in John 14:15: “If you love Me, you will obey my commandments”
·         A cheerful heart is a heart of purpose. “. . . let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” –Hebrews 12:1
·         A cheerful heart is a heart of power. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength” –Philippians 4:13 

           Let’s ask God for a cheerful heart…one that overflows with peace, praise, prayer, obedience, purpose and power.
