📖TEXT: Proverbs 15:13 “A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.”

The emotions of a person have an obvious effect on the body and soul.
While joy is inspiring and expressed by a cheerful look, heartbreak is depressing and painful. One moment we can be happy and another moment other circumstances bring trouble to upset us. If care is not taken, we become so tensed and pressured that we lose our joy.

Many people are so stressed up that they go to bed sad and tensed. God did not create us to live a stressful life, but to enjoy every moment of our lives.

Stress is like a balloon. It looks very beautiful to a child, but we know it is full of pressure inside. And with too much pressure, it bursts.


We all have a certain limit of tolerance beyond which we may burst.

Stress has so many negative effects on our general wellbeing. Heartache and disappointment can cause forgetfulness, temper, fatigue, sleeplessness, restlessness, high blood pressure, suicide thought, depression and constant sickness.

In order to reduce stress and heartbreak, we need to learn how to laugh. People who laugh regularly are healthier, live longer, have better relationships, and make better decisions.

We also need to cultivate contentment. One reason people are stressed out in life is lack of satisfaction (1 Timothy 6:6-10).

We run after some things in life, stressing ourselves just because we want to compete with others. Let us reduce stress by taking life very easy and trust in God for the best in our lives. Let us not expose ourselves to unnecessary pressure that can crush our souls. God is in control of our life. Cast all your burdens unto Him for He cares for you.

🤲🏽PRAYER: Lord Jesus, give me grace to withstand the pressures of life and choose to be always happy. Amen.

👌🏽INSIGHT: A happy life is better than a life of sorrow.
