“A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 Amplified
Do you take medicine every day, maybe even more than one pill, a handful? How did you get down that road? It surely didn’t start with a handful, they just kept getting added on.
The verse today talks about medicine that really will help you, God’s Word. As we find our joy and peace in trusting God, that heals us. Some people talk about positive thinking, but it’s more than that. Sure you must think positively, but you also have to leave all things in God’s hands.
I’ve always been a rose colored glasses person, looking for the silver lining, trying to see the good in every situation. That worked when all was going well, but if things got really bad it just didn’t seem to help me much. Then Jesus came into my life, He gave me a whole new perspective and filled me with the joy and peace I’d been searching for.
So get the real medicine that will heal you and fill you – Jesus!
