Sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day junk and gunk that we forget to enjoy life. As we kick off another week, let’s all make a conscious effort to laugh more, to allow more fun in the routine. I’m pretty sure we will notice our weeks going a lot more smoothly!
On a side note, for those of you who’ve been praying with us, Matt was released from the hospital yesterday! Prayers are still, of course, appreciated for a full and speedy recovery. But he is doing much better. Yay! God is, as usual, GOOD!
Have a fun filled day!
Today’s devo selection:
Finding the Fun
By Joyce Meyer
Want to hear a funny story? I’ve got a lot of them, and they come from things that happened in my ordinary, everyday life. Now, I wasn’t laughing when those stories were in the making, but I’m glad I can laugh about them now.
For example, I didn’t think it was funny when I couldn’t get my hair to stay in place, but if you’d seen what I did about it, you certainly would have laughed. It wasn’t amusing when I tried to make clothes, especially for the people who had to wear them. And I was so irritated when Dave threw paper towels over the grocery store aisle at me, but I realize now, he just knew how to have a little fun no matter what he was doing. I’m glad I’ve learned to look at times like these and see the humor in them.
Now I know that not everything in life is necessarily enjoyable, but I think we all need to learn to have more fun in our lives. And I bet if you took time to think about it every day, you could find a moment that brought you joy or you can laugh about now.
God wants His children to have some fun. The Bible says a merry heart does good like medicine. I think we all need a healthy dose of laughter every day – many times during the day. You just can’t overdose on joy!
I encourage you to deliberately look for something to smile or laugh about every day, and be sure to share a smile or a laugh with someone else and brighten their day too!
Prayer Starter: Lord, Your Word says that a cheerful heart is like good medicine. Thank You for helping me to find the joy and fun in life!
Scripture: A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones. (Proverbs 17:22 NKJV)
