The Heart and The Day

20 Jul

The Heart and The Day…

How’s your day going? You probably think that if things are going bad you’re having a bad day and if things are going good, it’s a good day. But the Bible says something completely different. And it can change the way you live your life.

Proverbs 15:15 says: “All the days of the downcast are bad, but a cheerful heart has an everlasting banquet.” – or – ‘All the days of the downcast are bad, but a good heart has a never-ending banquet.’

In other words, it’s not bad days that make the downcast heart. It’s the downcast heart that makes all the days bad. And it’s not the continual banquet that makes the good heart. It’s the good heart that makes the continual banquet. Get it?

If your heart is complaining, your days will be rotten. If your heart is full of praise and thanksgiving, your days will be full and beautiful. So… you want a good day, a good week, a good year, a good life?

Stop seeking after a good day, and seek instead to have a good heart. Give thanks in all things, and praise to God, and your life will become an everlasting banquet.

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:11

No matter what’s around you today, give God thanks and praise Him as often as you can, and you will have a never-ending banquet.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
