We all love to laugh! Some of my favorite childhood memories revolve around 4 little girls caught up in uncontrollable giggling. I can almost hear my sisters and I laughing so hard that our giggles had no place left to get out–when all of the sudden they would travel from top to bottom (you know what I’m talking’ ’bout) back to the top again and break free though tears.
My Mom would actually predict the coming floods before they happened.
Sometimes as we travel into adulthood and the troubles of the world begin to slip into our days, we let that kind of belly busting laughter fade away. I have definitely been in a season of serious for way too long!
There has been TO MUCH FOCUS on “To-Do’s” and “To-Dont’s” this year. I am ready for some belly giggles and I might even wet my pants! (somehow that just doesn’t sound as CUTE as it does with a little girl does it?) (see I’ve already cracked myself up! :))
Today, I read scripture after scripture about the JOY of the Lord. He very clearly receives JOY from our JOY! I challenge you to look up the word JOY in the back of your Bible for a refresher course like I had today.
If you have lost your joy, here are 4 ideas I noted for myself JUST FOR TODAY! Maybe they will help you find a giggle as well:
1: Just for Today–I will not worry about my needs, hurts, confusion or challenges! God’s got them anyway. (Phil 4:13)
2. Just for Today–I will not fear. God has not given me a spirit of fear (2 Tim 1:7)
3. Just for Today–I will refuse to embrace doubt or lack of faith. Without Faith, I CAN NOT please God. (Heb 11:6)
4. Just for Today–I will not feel Worried or Frustrated. I will CAST ALL MY CARES ON HIM! (1 Peter 5:7)
Hmmm…maybe Just for Today might get to be a habit 🙂
