 Proverbs 15 13

Today’s Word

Painful

Causing mental anguish or suffering.

 

Today’s Verse

A joyful heart  makes the face cheerful, but by a painful heart the spirit is broken.

 

Joy in Our Hearts

To have joy in our hearts provides for happiness in our lives. It gives us an outlook that is like a rainbow in the sky after a storm. It reminds us of the promise of salvation, love, care, and goodness. When we are happy, we have a feeling in our lives that is hard to describe.

We see all the colors in life. We not only see goodness, but we feel good about ourselves. We have an inexplicable delight.

Painful Feeling of Heartache

On the contrary, when we go through a painful experience, our heart grows weary, our minds are weighted down, and our soul and spirit may be broken. Our joy may be gone, stolen, or vanished. Our hearts are heavy with burdens and turmoil.

Of the colors of life, we see, only, grey. We feel doomed, down, and helpless. A feeling, when explained, that provides immense sadness.

God Helps

If we have joy in our hearts, we give God thanks for so. However, if we are in the midst of a heartache, give God the upper hand and let him handle the situation, as not to go through it alone. Pray, ask, converse with God. Let Him know the heartaches being faced. He already knows it, he just wants to hear you. Why? Because he does not want to intervene unless you seek Him.

Turn it Around

Once God is intervening and handling your heartache, turn around and seek your joy. Delight in his help. Let him uplift your spirit and return cheerfulness to your soul. Let him abide with you, so your heartache has no choice but to bump itself out of your life. Rejoice with God and share your joy with those that surround you. Cheer and joy are contagious.
