A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. (The Book of Proverbs, Chapter 17, Verse 22)
Have you ever been to a healing service? Miraculous healing is a joy to receive or behold. Overall though, health is a matter of wisdom. It is a path. It is a life style.
Oh, Lord, teach me to cultivate a happy heart and maintain a cheerful mind even in the face of painful circumstances. Defend my spirit. Do not let it be broken in the ebb and flow of earthly battles. My bones are my frame. Let them be strong yet supple, resisting the tear and torque of daily stress.
