All the days of the afflicted are evil,
But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
And a good report makes the bones healthy.
A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance,
But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
Dull or sad heart= sad or blue countenance.
It's that simple. One thing I want to point out is the reason our hearts should be joyful/happy (or at least the main reason.) It's because of Jesus we should shine and be joyful! Others will be attracted to the real joy and light in us if we a shining for Him. Perhaps they'll even ask, 'why are you smiling?' Then you can tell them of the hope that is within you! You see our dark world looks a real and true light and will either get away from it or be attracted to it. I encourage all of you to put a smile on your face and shine for the Lord this week! You never know who you can be a witness to, even if it's just a little smile!
