Let's Talk

Smile!

In everything you do, stay away from complaining and arguing so that no one can speak a word of blame against you. You are to live clean, innocent lives as children of God in a dark world full of people who are crooked and stubborn.  Shine out among them like beacon lights, holding out to them the Word of Life.

Philippians 2:14-16 Living Bible (TLB)

Today I will smile.  I will smile even if I don't feel happy because joy does not come from being happy.  Joy comes from the Lord.  I will smile if someone tries to argue with me, because whatever is said that I may disagree with doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things.  I will smile so that I can focus on what God has for me to do because anything less will steal my peace.  My smile will be my candle in the darkness and I'm gonna let it shine!

Sometimes there seems to be nothing to smile about.  We argue about things that don't really matter and we complain whether it's raining or if the sun shines too hot.  Yet, it serves no purpose because these things don't change simply because we don't like or agree with them.  They change when we ask God to change them, according to His will.  Let's shine our lights in this troubled world and cast the darkness away.

Fix your face.  Smile.
