Today's Scripture
A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 AMP

Thoughts for Today
Christianity is joyful. Joy is good for your health.

Current thought recognizes many health benefits of laughter. It has been said that laughter reduces stress, strengthens the immune system, relaxes muscles, lowers blood pressure, provides respiratory cleansing, diminishes pain and is good cardiac exercise.

Isn't that just like our heavenly Father? He uses something as great as laughter to help us stay healthy.

Consider this
Laughter is healthy, but what do most of us tend to do? Worry  complain  focus on problems more than blessings  indulge in staying overly busystress out over the little things, as well as the big things. There is no laughter and joy in that!

God is a happy God. We could do well to learn from little children. They are more like God than we are. They know how to laugh and have fun.

Eat right, exercise, get enough rest and ... laugh! It's good for you.

Prayer
Father, thank you for joy and laughter. Thank you for making something as great as laughter good for my health. Help me to focus on blessings more than problems  to trust instead of worry to give thanks instead of complain. Help me to have a cheerful mind. In Jesus' name
