Cheer Up

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22(NIV)

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Proverbs 17:22(NLT)

Truly, life’s situations aren’t always cheerful and things that don’t seem hopeful happen to us all. However, to stay alive, and I mean really alive, and not like the ‘walking dead’, there’s need to add a bit of cheer and a constant little more cheer to everyday living. I find this song by Panam Percy Paul so inspiring anytime I listen to it and I want to share the words with you. The world ain’t about to cave in just yet, so cheer up!

I just wanna tell you my story
I’ve been through hell on earth
I have seen frustrations
And when I tried and failed
I just tried again
With God on my side
Nothing is impossible

I remember the three Hebrew children
Down in the furnace
Daniel in the lion’s den
It seemed the world was crashing on them
They cried to the Lord
They lifted their voices
And the furnace became air conditioner
Daniel had a lion for a pillow

I have seen many trials in my life
But my God is not a man, that He should lie
All the things He promised me
He has done every one of them
And whatsoever He says
I know He will do

C’mon, cheer up brother
Cheer up sister
You can make it
Cheer up, don’t you stay down
Wake up right now
And Jesus will help you

Shalom!
