Sometimes we get bogged down in our everyday life with circumstances...relationships... demands....jobs....stress...finances and bills....etc. etc. etc. I guess it's not sometimes, it's most of the time. And it's usually daily or even moment to moment. UGH!

Let's take this verse to heart. A merry heart....that actually means a happy heart. Hmmm...what is a happy heart? A happy heart that's filled with joy. Joy in our heart does not depend on circumstances. Joy comes from a right relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ. If we have joy in our heart, we can handle any circumstances. Because the Joy of the Lord is our Strength!

We tend to get so serious in life, even where our concerns paralyze our faces and tightens our muscles....even drying up our bones. Not a good thing!

It's time to lay those concerns and those daily circumstances at the feet of Jesus. Most of us know that God can handle the "big" things in our lives. But do we know that He so desires to be a part of the little things that bog us down? That would be a "trust" factor, right? He wants us to come to Him and let Him handle it. He wants us to walk in freedom in the daily stuff.

So my advice today is this....take the bags of stuff to Jesus. He knows how to handle it. And trust Him with those things.

Then I give you permission to laugh. Laugh out loud. Even if you have to force it...Prime the pump so to speak with some loud Ha Ha Ha!

Find an old I Love Lucy show - I love the classic one about Lucy working in a chocolate factory! Or listen to kids silly songs.

Or watch the YouTube below! Maybe it will tickle your "inards".



Let that merry heart come out of you! Rejoice! And again I say REJOICE!

Blessings on your weekend!
