Circumstances are tough! Let’s face it. Most days just getting up presents more reasons NOT to smile than to smile! It’s too early, it’s too late; I ran out of coffee, I forgot to buy tea; the weather is too hot; the weather is too cold; I have an ache, I have a pain! The list goes on and on and on…
Truth is, there is always a reason NOT to smile.
However, today I am presenting THE TRUTH, that when Jesus is the Source of our smile, there are too many reasons to keep that smile off of our face!
We are speaking The Truth today, and The
Truth is Jesus gives me far more reasons to smile than not too!
Jesus gives me HOPE! When I read and listen to the heartache and devastation around me, instead of hopelessness, Jesus gives me Hope in knowing He is in control. He promises to “…work all things together for good…” Romans 8:28
That puts a smile on my face as I lift up prayers to Him for His people!
Jesus gives me Grace! When I miss a day of getting up early He gently reminds me that, tomorrow is a new day, and a new start. Instead of defeat taking me over, a smile of renewal spreads across my face!
Jesus gives me Joy!
“The Joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10b
He promises me that when Joy fills my life instead of sorrow, I am strong!
More than ANYTHING ,
Jesus gives me Forgiveness! Nothing that I do or not do, nothing that I say, is ever beyond the reach of God’s Forgiveness! Now, if that doesn’t put a smile on my face, nothing will.
When Jesus is our Source, we can get up each morning, put our feet on the floor, and say,
” This is the day The Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
That is Real! That is Truth! That is authentic!
Your smile is real when Jesus is the source!
So smile! Someone is watching! They need to see your Source before they can know Him!
SMILE, JESUS LOVES YOU!
