A happy heart // 01-08-22

“A happy heart is good medicine and a joyful mind causes healing, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs‬ ‭17:22‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I was reminded of this proverb yesterday, and of how true it is! Here’s what I read about laughter: ‘It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humour lightens your burdens, inspires hope, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps you release anger and forgive sooner.’ Wow, when was the last time you laughed til you couldn’t catch your breath? We need to get around people who cause our hearts and minds to be filled with joy! I’m pretty sure our holiday club this week is going to do this! Please be praying for all the kids and volunteers, that they will have an amazing joy-filled week! Lord, I’m praying for healing of minds, strengthening of hearts, and restored spirits in Jesus’ name! Amen ❤️‍🔥
