Someone has lost their joy....their ability to laugh.....not chuckle.....but that deep down belly laugh that makes your stomach ache and breathes life into your very soul. I don't know what made you stop laughing, but God wants to give you back your happy today. People in your life miss your laugh. They long to hear it again.
You might say, "I don't feel like laughing, I have nothing to laugh about." I would counter that with, "Of course you do! You have just closed your heart off to the funny in life, the crazy in life."
For whatever reason, sometimes we stop seeing and doing the funny. The stuff that makes us double over in laughter. The other night I was driving with Elin and we were making up a conversation and bantering back and forth and found ourselves laughing our heads off. I was at a table this past week with some friends and we were talking and laughing so hard I thought my sides would split. I texted my friend afterwards and told her how nice it felt to laugh so hard on such an ordinary day.
The Word is right when it says, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." (Prov. 17:22)
If you can stop laughing in your life, you can begin laughing in your life. If you have gotten out of the habit of laughing, start back up today. Intentionally begin to laugh. Out loud. Eyes closed. Head back. Ask God to fill you with laughter. You need this in your life. I know there hasn't been much to laugh about recently, but you gotta begin to laugh again. The enemy has stolen this simple act that means so much to your humanity. Take it back today.
Whoever I'm writing to today....I love you as my sister in Christ. I'm praying for something in life to catch you by surprise and cause you to have the belly laugh your soul is longing for. I wish I could be there to hear it!
