“LEARN TO LAUGH at yourself more freely. Don’t take yourself or your circumstances so seriously. Relax and know that God is with you. When you desire GOD’S will above all else, life becomes much less threatening. Stop trying to monitor GOD’S responsibilities—things that are beyond your control. Find freedom by accepting the boundaries of your domain. Laughter lightens your load and lifts your heart into heavenly places. Your laughter rises to heaven and blends with angelic melodies of praise. Just as parents delight in the laughter of their children, so GOD delight in hearing HIS children laugh. GOD rejoices when you trust HIM enough to enjoy your life lightheartedly. Do not miss the Joy of The LORD’S Presence by carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Rather, take GOD’S yoke upon you and learn from HIM. GOD’S yoke is comfortable and pleasant; GOD’S burden is light and easily borne.”
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”—which means, “God with us.”
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Lord help me to enjoy life lightheartedly and trust you with the rest.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
