“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Proverbs 17:22 (NLT)
I’ll never forget when my husband I attended a music ministry event when we were dating. Different music artists came up to sing songs, perform poetry, and Gospel rap. It was an awesome time in God. Towards the end of the event, an altar call was given and I, along with several others, answered the altar call. I got down on my knees, closed my eyes and began to worship my heavenly Father. I told Him how great He is and how blessed I am to know Him. While I was bowed down, I felt a piece of cloth hovering over my head. I didn’t know what it was. I thought that for whatever reason someone had laid a cloth over my head. I thought to myself, “Well that’s different” but I didn’t care. I just kept worshiping God. So as I’m bowed down with my face to the floor, eyes closed, in serious worship mode, I feel the cloth move over my head and towards the back of my neck. By this time I’m wondering what is going on…I then opened my eyes and began to bring my head up. I suddenly noticed that I was under a woman’s dress! I moved back so fast and sat down…traumatized! The woman was totally unaware! While I was worshiping, she must have stepped back, causing her dress to cover my head! Everyone on the front row started to laugh and all I could think was “Lord, why You do me like that? I was worshiping You.” I guess He truly does cover me. The Lord really does have a sense of humor. Without Him, life would be dull and boring, routine and serious all of the time. He brings joy and laughter into our lives when we least expect it. Receive His joy and a merry heart today!
Prayer: Father God, I love Your wonderful sense of humor! You bring so much joy and laughter into my life! Thank You! I receive Your joy and a merry heart. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
