“Is there Joy in your Heart?”

“Is there Joy in your Heart?”



There are so many things going on in this world

today that it is easy to let worry have more room in our heart than happiness.

In the medical world, we are constantly being reminded of the preventive

medicine we need. Unlike 60 years ago when health only entered our minds when

we got sick, today we are told continually of so much that can happen to our

health if we don’t have this test run, take this pill, or get this shot to

prevent some type of virus infecting us. If you allow it, you can give this too

much attention. Of course, it is important to have good health. As we get older

it really seems to get a lot more of our attention. Don’t let worry about your

health take your eyes off the cross. The words of God given wisdom from Solomon

in Proverbs 4, we see that a physically healthy heart is important, but to keep

focused on good things to keep our spiritual heart clean and healthy.

There is no medical test in place to make sure we

are healthy in mind and spirit. As Christians, we must look to the bible for

those answers. When we let our request be made known to God, His peace which

surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ

Jesus. (Philippians 4:6, 7).

Don’t let a cheerful life pass you by. God wants

you to be happy and healthy. Start today by putting on a smile. Show the world

Jesus lives within your heart. It may not be easy at times, but a joyful heart

really does work like medicine. (Proverbs 17:22)

A smile is infectious-you can catch it like a virus,

no physical contact even necessary.
