I ran across the following quote from Chuck Swindoll and found it rather interesting,
“Earthquakes! Prison riots! Economic pressures! Divorce! No jobs! Drugs! Disease! Death! Pretty serious scene, isn’t it? Yet that is the emotional environment in which we live. No wonder someone has dubbed this the “aspirin age.” Small wonder more of us are not throwing in the towel.”
When I come across statements such as this I am thankful that I have the Word of God to guide and encourage me. The words of the wise man teach us that there is a time for everything under the sun.
I encourage all of us to ask ourselves whether or not we have allowed all the negativity that surrounds us to darken our Spirits and our thinking. If we have, God offers us a solution; a joyful heart.
If you want to feel better and make the day bright, try a smile; it can be contagious.
