YOU LOOK HAPPY ~
Behind the scenes of one smile, is a person who has a story. A story of sin and God forgave them. A story of answered prayers and waiting on other prayers to be answered. God connects our lives to others for a larger purpose. Who knows what is behind that smile you see on someone's face. Who knows what is next, but God.
Proverbs 15:13-23 New International Version (NIV)
13 A happy heart makes the face cheerful,
but heartache crushes the spirit.
14 The discerning heart seeks knowledge,
but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.
15 All the days of the oppressed are wretched,
but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
16 Better a little with the fear of the Lord
than great wealth with turmoil.
17 Better a small serving of vegetables with love
than a fattened calf with hatred.
18 A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict,
but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.
19 The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,
but the path of the upright is a highway.
20 A wise son brings joy to his father,
but a foolish man despises his mother.
21 Folly brings joy to one who has no sense,
but whoever has understanding keeps a straight course.
22 Plans fail for lack of counsel,
but with many advisers they succeed.
23 A person finds joy in giving an apt reply--
and how good is a timely word!
YOU LOOK HAPPY ~
A happy heart makes the face look cheerful
It is a joy to serve the Lord with all my heart. I believe in prayer and I know that God can turn situations around. Not everything is at a happy time or joyful time of life. It's good to know the Bible and read scriptures of hope plus encouragement. Life changes us and it doesn't always turn out the way we think it will or should. I have seen somethings that seem so unfair to lives, but I continue to know God is able to handle whatever I face. Keep holding on and give thanks unto a big God who created you.
A new day brings new thoughts and actions. Purpose yours to be good one and let you light shine to someone else today. We just never know what one life is going through today.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
