Two Awesome Bible Verses About the Power of Smiling

Did you know that just one single chapter in Proverbs contains two of the greatest verses on the power of smiling? I think that's so cool! :o) They are:

Proverbs 15:13  A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.

Proverbs 15:30  A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. (NIV)

God showed me something this morning that I thought was really neat! In the first verse, He says that happiness comes from the heart. In other words, if you choose to be happy on the inside, it will show on the outside!

In the other verse, it says the converse idea...that when you choose to have a cheerful look, then your heart will be joyful. In other words, put a smile on your face and you will also feel good on the inside! 

So, put a smile on your face...not only will it encourage others to do the same, but you will feel good and probably have a better attitude for doing it. ;-)

There may be times that you think "I don't have anything to smile about." When you feel this way ask God what you have to smile about. He will be faithful to show you!
