Let's Start LAUGHING!


How many times have you succinctly asked God to "cause you to laugh"?  I mean bless you with fall down, sense and nonsense, silly laughter?  It works wonders, you know!

I love to laugh until I can't stand up, or until I can't take a breath, or until my sides and cheeks ache! Sincerely deep down belly laughter can renew the heart, mind, and emotions for hours (and even days) at a time when we refuse to relinquish the God-given JOY attached to it.

We all know what the scriptures say about such things, right?

"A merry heart does good like a medicine."

"The JOY of the Lord is your strength."

"Weeping may endure for a night, but JOY COMES IN THE MORNING."

"REJOICE in the Lord always and, again, I say REJOICE!"

Laughter, merriment, and JOY by God's definition are conditions we should seek as tonics to our lives.  Since we are Daddy's boys and girls and abide in Him we can "ask anything" in Christ's Name and it will be given to us.  So, hey...

ASK FOR LAUGHTER!  ASK FOR A MERRY HEART!  And - above all - ASK FOR JOY! 

Remember that you know how to laugh because Daddy laughs; you know how to have JOY because it's of the Lord!  Let's take on the character and powerful weaponry of our Father, y'all!  In Jesus, let's rejoice! Let's start laughing MUCH more!

Don't be afraid or ashamed to ask the Lord to "tickle you" today!  You're not taking liberties by doing so, my friends, you're asking in direct accordance to His will for you to have JOY and to have each dim prospect/perspective of life changed to brightness and HOPE!  So, hey...

God bless you as you go forth in Him, with JOYYYY!
