Are You Smiling??

Today is the day the Lord has made so, we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24)!! Having said that, I have a challenge for you! Would you like to know what it is? Find a reason to smile! If you can’t find at least one reason then get a bigger shovel and start digging! Your smile is the wall that safeguards you from all the negativity that circulates in the world and percolates in your head!! Make note, I’m not talking about a cheesy fake smile rather, a genuine smile that reflects a genuine heart of happiness! Proverbs 15:30 “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.” I get it!! There’s really not much to smile about however, smiling through adversity does have a few health advantages like lowering your blood pressure, it relieves stress, lessens pain, and strengthens your immune system. I will submit to you that smiling is more contagious than the COVID-19 and it might aid in flattening the curve😇!! Proverbs 17:22 says, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but depression drains one’s strength.” Therefore, if all you have to smile about today is the fact you’re living and breathing that’s all you need! Proverbs 15:13-15 reminds us that, “A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit. A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash. For the despondent, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast.” Look at this way, the most beautiful smile is the one that struggles through fears and tears!
