The LORD revealed to Job in Job 8:21 that He would fill his mouth with laughing, And his lips with rejoicing.
Proverbs 17:22 (AMP) says A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing but a broken spirit dries up the bones.
I am learning to laugh when I feel like crying.
I am learning to laugh when I feel like giving up.
When the pain is unbearable, I am learning to laugh.
When those I really love, hate me….I am learning to laugh.
Some wonder why I laugh so much now at the age of 51,….because they don’t know that I never laughed as a child. I was full of fear and emotional pain until my early forties, when I opened my heart completely to GOD.
I told GOD the truth about me and He started me on a journey of inner healing, deliverance and conversion.
I NEED to laugh now.
What Jesus said in Matthew 18:3 gripped my heart in 2013 and I have pursued this reality as if it were my oxygen.
….Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven”. Matt 18:3
I laugh because I am converted.
I laugh because His word is true.
I laugh because I am loved by Him.
I laugh with my wonderful grandchildren/God-children.
Some are offended when I laugh out loud;
Some look at me in disgust, while others try to douse my laughter with their venom.
When I sense the presence of God and see the tangible benefits of laughter in my heart and mind……I keep on laughing out loud.
Tonight, I thank God for those in my life who love me enough to laugh with me and for the many more bouts of laughter yet to come.
