The Lighter Side

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.—Job 8:21 (NIV)

Laughter and joy are great sources of strength. When you choose to see the humor in a situation by looking to the lighter side during dark times, you discover that you can find joy even in the midst of trouble.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, You are the Light of the lighter side. Fill me with Your joy so that I smile easily and laugh out loud.
