Be Happy

PC

There’s such a thing as being too sober and taking things too seriously, especially ourselves. The ability to laugh at ourselves is a great asset and helps keep us humble. People who can’t laugh at their own mistakes or take the mistakes of others with a sense of humor are either too proud or have too severe a sense of life.
God intended for us to enjoy living, and He has given us the ability, senses, and environment to do so. In fact, our main purpose in life is, as Martin Luther once said, “to love God and enjoy Him forever.”
If there’s anything we Christians are supposed to be, it’s happy people. We’ve got more to be happy about than anybody else in the world. We have the happy love of Jesus, who takes all of our burdens, carries all of our cares, and lightens all of our sorrows. Jesus says that His yoke is easy and His burden is light .

If you’re finding His yoke too heavy to bear, then maybe you’re not “casting all your care upon Him.” Maybe you’re trying to carry too much and pull too hard on your own, instead of letting God do it by His power, His love, His grace, and His strength. He says, “Without Me you can do nothing.” “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you.”

When I was a young man, a missionary who had evangelized a country that was closed to the Gospel stayed with my family for a while. As he helped wash the dinner dishes one evening, I marveled at his humility, grace, and happy, cheerful spirit. Here was a man who had done great things for the Lord, humbly washing dishes with me.

A young missionary asked an older missionary a question: "What quality do you think a missionary needs the most"? Out of his vast wealth of wisdom and experience, he looked at this young missionary with a smile, and said, “A sense of humor—the ability to laugh when you feel like crying.”

So let’s always be able to smile through our tears. A ray of sunshine is even more beautiful in the midst of rain. Let’s have a little more sunshine and laughter, and not so much gloom and doom. The world knows enough hell; let’s show them a little more heaven. “Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.” As the American poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox wrote, “Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone. For the sad old Earth must borrow its mirth, but has troubles enough of its own.”

Pray this Prayer with Faith:
Father, thank you for another opportunity to be alive once again. Your life style alone sets all the example I need to be a cheerful and content person. I take courage from you and deliberately decides to be happy and live with peace with everyone because that is what you made me for. Thank you Lord for this words of wisdom.
