Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.
Habakkuk 3:18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
Also, James 1:22 tells us to be a doer of the Word and not just a hearer.

It is so easy to get caught up in all the depression the world has to offer these days. Let’s not forget that God invented laughter. My prayer is that never goes out of fashion.
Today, try to put a smile on the next 3 people you come in contact with.
Have a blessed day!
