Wish You a Merry Christmas!

We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year!

A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones. (Proverbs 17:22 NKJV)

A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired. (Proverbs 17:22 MSG)

I love this passage of scripture, it’s so true, but could be perceived incorrectly if interpreted from the paradigm of so many people today.

It seems to me, many people today are lead by their emotions and lead by emotion. People tend to live life reactively based on their feelings.

If we interpret this with that thinking then we lose the meaning altogether. Happiness or being Merry doesn’t happen to us, we choose it. We decide to be merry and with that choice comes health.

How do we choose to be cheerful or positive?

1. Decide not to let our emotions rule us.

2. Choose the positive over the negative daily.

3. Choose to laugh. Find reasons to laugh, make reasons to laugh.

4. Enjoy life.

5. Live life based on biblical principles and tell your emotions to line up with the bible, don’t let your emotions push you around.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

  1. Hope you had a good birthday. I wrote some things in a message on FB but I know you’re a busy person and can’t read everything. I’m visiting the MWC campus this Sunday. See you around.
