“I say that it is time to laugh! Yes, some things look as though it is impossible to laugh, but laugh says the Lord, laugh anyhow. Step out and make joy and laughter happen in your situation and I will make joy and laughter bubble up from within you and it will change your situation forever!”
…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalms 30:5).
One cloudy morning, I was driving to my office feeling somewhat blue. I was thinking about all the things I had before me to deal with. Not long into my drive, the sun began to peek through the clouds and my spirits began to perk up! I started singing and thinking about how great life is.
I was reminded how easily we let something miniscule like a cloudy morning change our perspective. Often what looks like the impossible mountain is impossible because we allow it to be so in our own minds. Even the real trials require us to keep the right perspective if we are ever going to gain victory.
Laughter is a great way to get a new perspective. It can change your mood and make you forget your problems. You can be having a tough day, but then someone tells a funny joke and you forget everything! Laughter gave you a new outlook, just like the sunshine did for me driving in my car. I believe laughter is like sunshine. It will brighten your day. Laugh today; you may be surprised how your laughter will become a real force of power!
Hallelujah, Lord, I laugh today! I make it a day of joy and laughter. I choose to laugh in spite of all my circumstances. Ha! Ha! Ha! Lord, let me experience an overwhelming force of joy in Your presence today that gives me a new perspective! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
