Fill Me With Laughter

Did you know God likes it when you laugh?

Sure, life isn't all fun and games, but a little laughter can go a long way toward improving one's outlook and maintaining an overall sense of well being. In fact, Solomon said, "a cheerful heart is a good medicine" (See Proverbs 17:22 NIV). Another way of putting it ..."The joy of the Lord is your strength" (Nehemiah 8:10 KJV). A heavy and burdened spirit saps your energy, but a joyous spirit enables you to face life with a bounce in your step, a smile on your face, and laughter in your mouth.

As a believer, you have a lot to laugh about. No matter what life throws at you, the end of the Book says that we win! That means we get the last laugh!

Our mouths were filled with laughter
our tongues with songs of joy,
Then it was said among the nations,
"The Lord has done great things for them."
Psalms 126:2 NIV
