Take Your Medicine

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:2
You have heard it said, "Laughter is the best medicine" and actually that truth is right off the pages of scripture. Getting a good belly laugh not only can cheer a person up emotionally but physically as well. 
Being downcast and gloomy only serves to drive you into a pit of despair. If you get this way go find something to make you smile. Satan loves to get people sad. When you are sad you tend to have self pity. Self pity is not from God. 
Don't watch things that make your fearful or anxious. Get on some clean comedy and smile awhile. The nightly news is not your choice for smiles so keep it off. Buy a joke book with clean humor. Stay away from pessimistic people. Keep looking up and go get well. 
PRAYER: I thank you for creating the gift of laughter, not at crude degrading humor but at decent funny moments in life. I choose to focus on what makes me smile and run from gloom. In Jesus' name. Amen.
