Be Cheerful

Be Cheerful

Scripture: Proverbs 17:2

 KJV: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

 GNT: Being cheerful keeps you healthy. It is slow death to be gloomy all the time.

 ESV: A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

 NLT: A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.

Reflection:

Hey! I’d like to encourage you today and here is how i would like to present it if you don’t mind. If you go through all the translations I shared, simply direct to one meaning. I’d like to define the word “cheerful” and from the dictionary perspective.

The Oxford dictionary defines being cheerful as- “causing happiness by its nature or appearance.”

 However, with this definition, I’d like to say and from link.springer.com perspective- “Cheerfulness denotes an individual’s actual (as a mood state) or habitual (as a trait or temperament) disposition for amusement and laughter including seeing the bright side of life and taking adversity less seriously.”

More specifically, here are my thoughts I’d like to encourage you with for today.

Be cheerful, have a merry heart, joyful, always. This serves as a medicine for overcoming lots of barriers that overweigh your spiritual growth. Find time for Playing/Recreational activities and have rest occasionally.

Finally, I’ll leave you with this quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick, “He who cannot rest, cannot work; he who cannot let go, cannot hold on; he who cannot find footing, cannot go forward.”

 Therefore, and according to the GNT translations-“being cheerful keeps you healthy. Its slow death to be gloomy all the time.” BE CHEERFUL ALWAYS! my friends.

 Prayer:

MAY GOD HELP US TO HAVE A MERRY HEART AND CREAT TIME FOR REST WHICH IS A MEDICINE 💊 FOR HEALTHY LIVING AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
