A Cheerful Heart | Hestina’s Jewels

Beautiful Ones, is your heart full of cheer?

Today’s Word: Keep a cheerful heart!

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. Proverbs 17:22 (NLT)

That’s a full word right there! Beautiful Ones, we know that life, ministry, work and the hurdles that come with daily living can be challenging. But even in the midst of all of those challenges, things can also remarkably rewarding. I’ve learned that rejoicing is one of life’s greatest antidotes for worry and anxiousness. Rejoicing revives the heart and helps to carry you through stressful times.

If you suspect you might be suffering from a lack of cheer, let me encourage you to look for ways to laugh more. Laughter is underrated and often overlooked as a legitimate way to nurture our souls and fill our hearts and minds with cheer. It is one of the many facets of rejoicing and is just what the Great Physician has prescribed to improve our health and bring joy back into your lives.

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalm 118:24 (ESV)

Rejoicing is intentional, it’s a deliberate choice rooted in our refusal to allow anyone or anything to overturn it. It’s like a gentle armor for the heart that brings with it gladness and cheerfulness. It reminds us that gladness is always within our grasp. And because of that we choose to keep cheer in our heart.

Blessing & Love From My Heart To Yours,

Hestina’s Jewels
