Who raise our envy now?”

    This one speaks to me. Smiling seems to be something the Lord has been dealing with me about a lot lately. The other day something was really bothering me and I was very upset and I know it was showing on my face; I don’t even remember what I was so upset about. Anyway, I was convicted of it, but it was still a struggle for me, until I came across a lady who smiled and greeted me with a friendly greeting. I really needed that.

    I remember a while back I heard Joni Eareckson Tada say that there are times when, in her daily physical struggle, she will ask God to give her His smile. This has been my prayer, not only for myself, but that God would also give me His smile for someone else who may need it as well.

    Thanks so much for sharing these. May God bless you.
