Proverbs 17:22
November 13, 2020

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 17:22

In today’s key verse, Solomon assures us a cheerful heart is good medicine for the soul, the mind and the body. Positive thoughts lead to a positive outlook which leads to a positive heart and a positive life. Negative thoughts lead to a broken spirit which impacts our minds, emotions and our lives.

You see, negativity holds the power to drain our strength and crush our spirits like dried up bones. Optimism has the power to do just the opposite … positive thinking leads to positive living.

Lord, help me have the strength to choose to be cheerful and full of joy, despite negative circumstances. Heal my heart and outlook with Your joy, and use me as a cheerful light in this world filled with negativity. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
