All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy. The way to a happy heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder. Be grateful for the little things that God can use to fill your heart with joy.
She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
God sees you. He knows your heart and your hurt. You are not alone. He loves you more than you could ever imagine. Trust God. Give him your brokenness and allow him to heal your heart and lead you to restoration.
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
When you have a relationship with God your heart changes and is free from anger, worry, and envy. You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful. But a person who envies the happiness, prosperity, and success of others exhausts and strains herself. Don’t let envy take away your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health.
